Report to Members of St. Paul’s Congregation – School Renovation
This is a summary of the final Building Committee report in regards to the school renovation. The project is complete. The total amount expended on the project was $484,822.16. This includes a remaining balance due of $68,812.94. The School Renovation Fund has a remaining balance of $8,161.00. The Bushek Fund has a remaining balance of $29,239.97. We were blessed to receive the maximum grant from the Antioch Foundation for $40,000. This means St. Paul’s was able to complete this important project without the need to borrow funds. Thank you all for “stepping up to the plate.” We are truly grateful to the Lord for the blessing of our Christian school and allowing us to complete the renovation without incurring any debt.
Lenten Services will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm only starting February 17, 2021. No 9 am services due to COVID/low attendance and Pastor scheduling.
