I want to thank everyone who participated in our church conference on Sunday, March 28. It was an important day for our church, and I am thankful for everyone who took part, as well as all of you who have shared your thoughts and questions during this entire process.
The majority voted, 135 for and 29 against, to accept the recommendation by our vision team and proceed with the sale of the sanctuary property. I truly believe that this decision, difficult as it has been, will position St. Paul for a strong future and enable us to prioritize missions and ministry, and reach new people for Christ.
We will share more information with you about the sales process and our next steps as it becomes available. I am blessed to be your pastor, and grateful for all the people of St. Paul as we work together to share the love of Jesus with our community and beyond.
During each Town Hall we learned more about the questions that concern you most, so we have updated the FAQ with some new answers including:
- Why Now?
- Why Not the CLEC?
- A more detailed answer about the proposed plans to move the Memory Garden to the CLEC side of the street
Town Hall Video
If you weren't able to attend any of the Town Halls, we have created a video that includes the presentation from Monday as well as the Q & A sessions from all three nights. Even if you did attend, especially if you attended on Sunday, you may want to watch the video because we added to our presentation on Monday after hearing your questions on Sunday. The updated FAQ also includes some of the things that were added if you don't have time to watch the video. You may also find that questions you were wondering about were answered on other nights than the one you attended. View the video below.
40:38 - Monday, Feb. 22 Q&A Begins

Thank you again for being part of this decision making process. Please continue to cover the entire process in prayer and ask for God's guidance and leading as we move forward.
