Hanging Tough and Staying Safe
St. Paul's Stewardship campaign of 2020 is entitled: "Hanging Tough and Staying Safe." This campaign is about what we have been doing sine the beginning of the pandemic.
We are hanging tough and staying safe by offering online ministry and we invite everyone to tune into our virtual experiences, including worship and our midweek online content.
This year, we are asking for everyone to maintain their current giving levels. This action will make it possible for St. Paul's Lutheran Church & School to continue to provide ministry to our membership, student body and Waverly.
Thank you for your ongoing and faithful giving.
