Saint Paul is an open, affirming, and diverse community of faith representing two Christian traditions, that of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and that of the Roman Catholic Church. Each tradition maintains and honors its own heritage, and each worships according to its own liturgical practices. As one community of faith, the members of the respective traditions work together in social outreach and shared hospitality. Together we rejoice in the manner in which diversity has enriched, nurtured, and challenged the life and ministry we share in Christ, and we regret actions and attitudes throughout the Church that may have inhibited or prevented access to Word and Sacrament because of age, race, socio-economic or marital status, physical or mental capacities, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We are a Reconciling in Christ community.
In preparation for future Sundays, NO Adult Forum will be held on either January 4 or January 25 (the day of the Annual Congregational Meeting). Please make note, however, to come to both the preview discussion of the proposed budget for 2015 at 9:15am on January 11, and the Annual Congregational Meeting at 12 noon on January 25.
