Church council news
Council approved a tentative plan to better secure the pews to the sanctuary floor. If this new strategy proves successful on several rows of pews, further funding will be approved to secure the remainder of the pews. Thank you to Paul Lubonski and Bob Crupi for leading this project.
Council approved a new PA system that can be shared with the other congregations that use the sanctuary. This new system will include monitors to allow musicians to hear themselves better while playing, an iPad controllable sound mixer, and other items. This will allow us to share PA equipment which will lessen the wear-and-tear on the carpeting and flooring caused by each congregation wheeling its equipment in and out of the sanctuary. It will also lessen the clutter created by each congregation having to store its own equipment in the church. Thank you to Paul and Kelly Lubonski for researching the needs of all the congregations and suggesting equipment that would economically meet those requirements and leave room for expansion.
We are looking for hosts to small "cottage" stewardship meetings in their homes.
Council approved a new church directory to be created by LifeTouch (formerly Olan Mills) free-of-charge to the church. It will be a directory including the other Edison ELCA churches (St. Stephen and Our Savior). LifeTouch photographers will be on-site at St. Paul's on April 13 and 14, 2018. Everyone who schedules and shows up for their photograph session will receive a free directory and photograph. Thank you to Sharon Gadomski for researching this project and leading the committee.
A Reformation 500 celebration will be held at St. Paul's on Sunday, October 29 starting at 1 p.m. It will include a luncheon followed by a worship service. Announcements will go out via social and local media inviting the community. A tent will be rented. Thank you to Kristen Luettchau for leading this committee.
