The Board of Evangelism is seeking your help. We are currently looking for members to join our board. If the Board of Evangelism doesn’t appeal to you, then we invite you to check out any of the other Kingdom Worker boards here at St. Paul. All of our boards would be grateful for any new members. Please pray on this and if you’re interested just ask an elder for help to put you in contact with someone. Thank you!

After leading our praise team from its very start, director Joan I. is stepping down. Please share your words of thanks with Joan for all that she has done! We are now in an active search for a new praise team director. The director will lead weekly practices, help select music, and oversee the praise team in worship one Sunday a month. There is an appreciation stipend for these services. To ask questions or to receive more information, please speak with Pastor Jenks or Greg Gebhart.
