STONE HALL RESTORATION UPDATE
Much progress has been made in our restoration of Stone Hall! The new dry wall is up and the new flooring is gradually being installed; work is well-underway in adding and refurbishing restrooms; and, the prep-kitchen is almost finished. The first coats of paint were added and the new lighting fixtures, ventilation system, and AV equipment are also partially installed. Lots completed and still a big checklist to go.

The project is slated to be completed by the end of March (fingers-crossed) and we look forward to a blessing of the space in late Spring. Keep a look out for another update and thank you to those of you who have donated to support the project and offset the use of our capital reserves.

We entrust into your unfailing care, merciful God:

With thanksgiving: our health care professionals, first responders, essential workers, and farmworkers.

Those who have died, especially David Adami, and those whom we love but see no longer.

Almighty and eternal God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth: Mercifully accept the prayers of your people, and strengthen us to do your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
A PRAYER FOR ST. PAUL'S

O God, our heavenly Father, make the door of St. Paul's Church wide enough to receive all who need love and fellowship and loving care, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and uncharitableness. Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, but strong enough to turn back the tempter's power. 

O heavenly Father, make the door of St. Paul's a gateway to your eternal kingdom; bless every member and worker; may all that we do and say be done and said to your honor and glory and the spreading of your kingdom. May we continue to be forever yours and daily increase through the Holy Spirit in love and service to others; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
