Troop 252 Eagle projects

We – Troop 252 & St. Paul’s has had two Eagle Scout projects completed onsite that will be enjoyed by the community for many years to come.

Tucker Green replaced the two rock walkways to the playground with concrete- running 218 hours time donated and $576 in materials that were not donated.  Hunter concrete brought all tools and several men that worked much of the day.

A bit of spare concrete was even wheelbarrowed over to a pot hole in the front parking lot!

 

Connor Rafferty took care of the narthex painting that also allowed light bulbs replaced (using the scaffold) & cleaning of some of the glass windows.  Hours (we know more than 14 people were involved) and cost are not in yet for that project just recently completed.

RSP painting donated supplies/materials, scaffold and got Sherwin Williams to donate the paint!

Unfortunately Only 6 of 10 bulbs by the alter could be replaced with that particular scaffold (too short), they did get the two bulbs I donated for the narthex swapped out.

I’m proud of these Scouts.

Keep in Touch,

Rob

Y-R-S – Year Round Stewardship – Love

The Stewardship Committee is embarking on a program in 2018 that we’re calling “Year-Round Stewardship,” or Y-R-S, for short.

Each month (or pair of months in some cases) we will highlight a different theme and an associated aspect of stewardship in various channels across the congregation.

For example, in February, the Valentine’s Day month, we’re going to focus on “Love” as in “Love Thy Neighbor.”  We’ll showcase local benevolence ministries such as FISH and Code Purple (Church Office 302-368-0064), the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center (https://www.hilltoplnc.org/), Lutheran Campus Ministry (https://sites.udel.edu/lutheran-campus-ministry/), and Hope Dining Room (https://www.facebook.com/hopediningroom/) to name a few, and ask you, the congregation, to consider lending a hand to something that occurs right here in our community.

Other monthly themes include, but are not limited to, Care of Creation, Education, Volunteering (giving back), and Sharing our Bounty. Over the course of the year, we will see information about these themes in both the monthly and weekly Epistle as well as our weekly Email Blast, and Facebook page.  You may even see/hear a reference in worship!  Ya never know, so keep an eye/ear out.

Proverbs 22:6 Education Fund

St. Paul’s Lutheran has established the  ‘Proverbs 22:6 Education Fund.’  It was born from a congregational member’s small gesture, as they assisted a family within our Extended Care program who needed a helping hand. A simple gift turned into a mission, which now works to serve the families of both St. Paul’s Lutheran School and Church.

More details of this exciting mission can be found at:

“Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
