The project continues. Several years ago Pastor Tom Hendershot layed out a vision for St. Paul’s:
After a period of decline from the 1960’s through mid-1990’s, st. Paul’s embarked on a deliberate pilgrimage of redevelopment in 1998. The three ‘R’s of that pilgrimage are:
the reclamation of our evangelical faith, so that we are grounded firmly in god’s good news in Jesus Christ;
the restoration of our property so that it stands as a clear indication of our commitment to be here and identify with our community.
the renewal of all the people God gives us to serve by meeting them where they live in the real world and claiming God’s strong grace for their lives, focusing our programs to meet their needs today.
Pastor Phil talked about where we are in that process.
