Funding the Mission Task Force Report

At the Annual Meeting in January 2018, Father Duncan Johnston described the financial state of the church. A key point of his report was that we cannot continue to rely upon the Memorial Endowment Trust (MET) for operating support without depleting it to the point that the financial health of the church is jeopardized. Father Duncan highlighted the need for a thorough assessment of the church’s finances and for recommendations to strengthen its resources so that we can make the most of our opportunities, capitalize on the new start we are embracing, and fulfill our spiritual vision.

To address this critical issue, the Vestry established the Funding the Mission Task Force to examine strategies to grow our income and opportunities to reduce spending without cutting back on essentials. The link below leads to the report from the Mission Task Force to the Vestry.

Save the Date - 1st Communion Preparation:
Monday, November 19th @ 4:00pm
The Episcopal Church teaches that everyone who has been baptized is a full member of the Christian Church and is able to receive Holy Communion.  However, many of our members, particularly those whose background is in the Roman Catholic Church, prefer their children to refrain from taking communion until they are old enough to receive some preparation.  On November 19th, Fr. Duncan and Erica Webber will host a one-hour class for all children whose parents would like them to attend.  Please contact Erica Webber stpaulssundayschool1@gmail.com or Fr. Duncan djohnston@stpaulswestfield.org or 908-232-8506, x12

Bible Study Thursday, November 29th @ 10:30am
This term we will be studying what are known as the 'Catholic Epistles'.  These are the letters in the New Testament that were not written by Paul - in other words, James, Jude, and the letters of Peter and John.  This week we will read 1st Peter.  Always lively and challenging, interesting and practical, this is a great way to get to know more people at St Paul's.

See what some of our members say about What St. Paul's Means to Them as shared with the congregation during our Stewardship Campaign.
