ED. COMM. & COUNCIL NOTES: President Gollnik informed the Council that the title for the land next to the school has been signed over. At some point the donor will remove the out buildings there. A formal letter of thanks will be sent. An extended conversation was begun on the future staffing needs of our school and promoting the blessings of Christian education. The Council asks all of our members to take ownership of this blessing for future generations with their prayers, labor and generous support. Any and all help is always appreciated at our annual school fix-up / clean-up night, Wed. Aug. 16, 6 p.m. (Wheelbarrows & pitchforks for spreading woodchips will be helpful). Budget Committee will meet Wed. Sept. 13, 7 p. m. at school. Nominating Committee meets Wed. Nov. 1, 7 p.m. at school.
ADULT CLASS – If you or someone you know is interested in instruction toward church membership, please call pastor at 486-2754.
MR. ERIC DUVE, our new teacher at St. Paul’s, will be installed next Sunday, August 13 at the start of both services with a special welcome for Mr. & Mrs. Duve between services. A table for non-perishable food and household items, and a card box will be provided in the entry.
COMPLIMENTARY COPIES of the newly published Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV) New Testament & Psalms produced by The Wartburg Project, are still available in the narthex. (The complete Bible with the Old Testament will become available in the fall of 2019, a little over two years from now.)
