On Sunday, June 12th, the voters of St. Paul approved the recommendation of the Built on the Rock Steering Committee and the Church Council to move forward with our whole project in phases.
Phase One will see the construction of the office and classroom wing with the basement portion under that wing; construction will begin as soon as possible. Phase Two will be the construction of the narthex/gathering space and the lower level of that space and will be completed as soon as we can, following the completion of Phase One.
The path we've set for ourselves won't be easy. It will require sacrifice. But the sacrifice is one we as a congregation have chosen to make, knowing how much we are loved by God our Savior, and also how much this project will mean for many souls for many years to come. Under his blessing, together, we can do it.
We are thankful for the careful planning and congregational conversation that has taken place to this point, and for the generous support already received. These are exciting times at St. Paul. Please continue to pray for the Built on the Rock Project, and for all that it will mean for the gospel efforts of our congregation.
Groundbreaking will likely take place within the next month or so. Stay tuned for details.
Jesus said, "Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." (Matthew 7:24)
