EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
School calendar for 2020-2021 was approved (tentative due to Covid-19).  First day of school at St. Paul’s is set for Tues. Sept. 8 (day after Labor Day).  Last day of school is set for Fri. May 28 (Friday before Memorial Day).  Graduation is set for Thurs. May 27.  School fees were adjusted for the new school year and will be included in information to be sent out to the parents.  Faculty Meeting is scheduled for July 28 at church.  An altar committee is underway with rotating groups to prepare communion set-up, altar cloths, banners, hymn boards and large-print hymnals, etc.  The Pastoral Call process was reviewed.  See details below.  Regular Quarterly Voters Meeting will be Sun. July 19, 1:00 p.m. on main floor.

 CONGREGATIONAL PRE-CALL MEETING
A congregational Pre-Call meeting will be held on the main floor of the church on Wednesday, July 15, 7:00 p.m.  This Pre-Call meeting is open to all of our members, men and women.  The purpose of the meeting is for the District President, Pastor Mike Jensen, to hold a Bible study on the Divine Call, then to receive input from the members on the needs of the congregation going forward so he can proceed to formulate a Call list of men for a future Call meeting.  Recognizing that the pastoral ministry is not a “job” or a “hiring,” but a Divine Call from the Holy Spirit through the congregation of believers, we ask the Holy Spirit to guide the process. (As is often customary, in order not to inhibit free conversation, your current pastor will intentionally not attend this congregational meeting.)  The actual Call meeting will be a Voters Meeting, not a congregational meeting.   It will be scheduled by mutual agreement of our leaders and the District President and/or the Circuit pastors who may act on his behalf.
