Pastor's Message

Pastor's Message 

Dear Friends in Christ,
   Summer is over. It passed by all too quickly for most people. I hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the warm sunny days we had.
 
   September 12 brings the resuming of Christian Education classes on Wednesdays as well as our 7:00pm Midweek Worship. So, if you can’t make it on Sunday, you will have Wednesday as an option.
 
   We will be also starting a new Bible Study on Sunday mornings following our social time. At this time we have not set a specific study but will do so soon.
 
   We are still working on a solution for covering Paige’s responsibilities here at St. Paul. We hope to have a proposal soon before the congregation to cover our Youth and Family Life Ministries. I encourage you to keep this in your prayers.
  
   I was recently elected as Chairman of Education and Family Life for Iowa District West. This position also places me on the Board of Directors for the District. We have had our first meeting and now have a better understanding what opportunities lie ahead for me in this regard. When accepting this position I had to step down as Circuit Visitor for the Algona Circuit. I will miss that, but new opportunities lie ahead!
 
   As far as St Paul goes I am excited as we go forward with keeping the message straight but as far as getting it out we might mix things up a bit. What do I mean by that? I really don’t know at this point, but am open to looking at different options.
 
   I hope this letter finds you hanging in there and holding on to the faith that we have received through our baptism into Christ Jesus.
 
In Christ,
Rev. Scott A. Kozisek
