You Are St. Paul’s! 

The beginning of a new year is a wonderful opportunity for us to take personal inventory, to resolve to make healthy changes and to give thanks for our many blessings.  As we begin this New Year 2018, we can all count our spiritual family of St. Paul’s as one of our great blessings.  

Each of you is a part of that blessing!  Your story is a unique part of the story of St. Paul’s.  You bless so many people through your financial support of St. Paul’s and through your active participation in our common life.

As we begin our 2018 stewardship pledge drive, we renew our commitment, rooted in our baptismal call, to support the mission and ministry of the Church.  On behalf of the many people whose lives are transformed through the ministry of St. Paul’s, I thank you for your faithfulness!  

If you are currently pledging, you will soon be receiving a pledge card in the mail.  If you are not currently pledging and would like to begin to do so, there are pledge cards available in the pew pockets, at the church doors, and in the parish office.  

As you prayerfully consider your financial support of St. Paul’s through your 2018 pledge, I invite you to take a leap of faith in being generous with the work of God.  As St. Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians reminds us, “Whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” [2 Cor. 9:6]
