Senior Warden Ben Sapp just returned from a week spent at the College for Congregational Development at Waycross. At the CCD members from different parishes get together and study practices and methods of growing congregations in areas of outreach and parish togetherness. Thanks, Ben, for representing us so well. We look forward to hearing your thoughts from the week.
All churches have their little secrets and St. Paul’s is no exception. Can you catch a glimpse of these little friends? Hint: there are more than one! Thanks to our Sam for his incredible origami!
