Congregational Forum & Annual Voters Meeting The annual meeting of the congregation will be held on January 20th at 9:10 am.  Elections will be held to fill the expired terms on the church council.  The following members have allowed their names to be placed on the ballot: Mark Dorsett (Stewardship), Josh Revoir (Education Committee), Randy Kasuboski (Special Ministries Chairman), Dave Homan (Treasurer), Brian Nagler (Evangelism), and Jeremy Volp (Property/Maintenance).  Please plan to attend the meeting - be informed, be involved in serving the Lord and in serving one another in love.

Family Fun Night St. Paul’s church and child center families are invited to an evening of fun at St. Paul’s Winter Wonderland at church on Friday, January 25th from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.  A light supper will be served.  Please help with the planning by signing up in the room with the church mailboxes or calling Connie Frederickson to RSVP at 582-9745.  Anyone interested in helping, please call Debbie Giddings at 582-4091.
Debt Free Celebration St. Paul’s paid the final installment on the bank loan on our Child Center building on November 1, 2018.  On January 20th during the Annual Voters Meeting, we will commemorate this occasion with cake and ice cream. 
Request For Volunteers We are asking for assistance in moving all items from current “mail room” to lower level “quilting room”.  Mailboxes will be removed and reinstalled in “bells room” on upper level, but all other items are to be stored in lower level by direction of St. Paul’s Church Council.  This will also consist of transferring all furniture from Narthex to new location to prep this area of upcoming “Restroom/Narthex” renovation.  Moving day should take place on February 2, 2019 at 8:30 am.  Please note that we will need carts and dollies to assist with moving larger items.
Bible Information Class In February we plan to start a new Bible Information Class.  This overview of the main teachings of the Bible can be a way into membership in the congregation as well as a good review for our current members.  We invite you to join us to grow in God’s Word on Monday evenings at 6:30 beginning on February 11th.
Congregation Talent Surveys The congregation, both young and young at heart, is being surveyed to populate a database which St. Paul’s can draw from when a request for help comes from a group, committee or someone within the congregation that has a task that they can no longer tackle themselves.  Two surveys are issued - one for adults (ages 15 & over) and one for the youth (ages 5-14) in the congregation.  Extra copies are on the table in the room with your church mailboxes.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey and deposit them into the survey box in the room with the church mailboxes or mail it to:
Communion Set-Up Volunteers are needed to set up for Holy Communion on the first and third weekends of each month.  The sign-up calendar for 2019 is posted near the church mailboxes.  If you would like additional information, please contact Pam Markert (379-4820) or Pastor Albrecht.  Thank you for your help.
