EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
Mr. Groth met with Ed. Comm. & Council to share information about his Call to Salem Lutheran in Milwaukee. Brad Gollnik reported that he and custodian Peggy Meyer completed asbestos training and certification for St. Paul’s. Acquisition of property adjacent to our school is progressing with a property survey being arranged. Shortfall in offerings for this year was noted along with the Council’s continuing prayers that our members will rejoice in the gift of our Savior’s gospel and worship Him by regular attendance and by regular, cheerful and proportionate giving.
