2015 CAPITAL CAMPAIGN DISCERNMENT


     Guided by Christ

We have launched our reflections on projects and programs that might be included if St. Paul’s decides to have a capital campaign. Everyone’s input is needed to review the short term repair needs that the VAST recommended, and to reflect on five discernment questions. People serving in a ministry with a regular monthly meeting (Finance, Health, Integrity, Lectors, Chalice Ministers, Parish Companions, Music/Choir, Daughters of the King, and Vestry) will discuss these questions at their regular meeting in the month of April and early May. Look for an email from your ministry head. People not attending ministry meetings are invited to discernment meetings being held in May. Please review the information below.

DISCERNMENT QUESTIONS

•    Review VAST recommendations for maintenance & repair and options for additional space, if needed.

•    Do you wonder why or how the VAST recommended any of these projects? Identify those that you question and your reasons why.

•    Are there any projects or programs you would like to see added to the list? Are there ministries or programs (new or existing) that need supplies, staff, or other funds to better carry out St. Paul’s mission to welcome, nurture, and serve?

•    Do you anticipate challenges if a capital campaign moves forward? What might they be?

•    What would you like to remind leadership as they review opinions and questions from the Parish family?

VAST PROCESS & RATIONALE

The VAST thoroughly studied St. Paul’s physical infrastructure and engaged an architecture and design consulting firm (VFLA) for technical advice. Based on this study, they recommended short term repair items that require attention in the next 3-5 years for our buildings to be safe and welcoming. They also recommended options for additional short term space if St. Paul’s continued to need more room for meetings, storage, and offices. During the 3-5 year period, the VAST suggested that we monitor our attendance and growth and what is happening in our environment, and that we develop a responsive longer range plan for the size of the church building, parish hall, classrooms and other space, and location.


              




Welcome to St. Paul's

We are a community worshiping in the Episcopal tradition, which has its roots in the oldest of Christian practices. We are a place where important questions are valued as much as eternal answers. Searchers and settlers, those who celebrate and those who mourn, those who doubt and those who believe -- St. Paul's is always striving, in the name of Christ, to welcome all people.

Please roam freely through our website. If you have questions, you may email us. You may also call our office at 970-482-2668. Our Parish Administrator, Vikki Weber, will be happy to help you in any way she can. Or, make an appointment to visit with our priest, The Rev. Bonnie Sarah Spencer.
