Our new emphasis, "Moving the Legacy Forward" is an opportunity for each of us to be part of
growing the legacy and sharing in Gods many blessings that have been so important to the St. Paul
Lutheran congregation for nearly 150 years. Through Gods love, and with your prayerful giving, we
hope to be able to touch more lives and spread God's word as we increase enrollment at St. Paul
Lutheran Church and School, as we strengthen God's love for the next generation and continue Moving
The Legacy Forward.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to match the results of the initial Living Legacy offering by raising an additional
$750,000 over the three year period of 2015- 2017, and to do so without reducing our ongoing

How can we expect to generate such additional funds?
It could never happen without the Lord's blessings. All of our endeavors call for a firm reliance
on the Lord of the Church and clinging to Him in faith. Jesus put it simple "Without me, you can do
nothing." But he also said, "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish,
and it will be given to you." (John 15) Your participation starts and ends with prayer and counting
the many blessings Jesus brings into your life.
Why not just take funds out of operating budget?
Offerings in our ministry budget are being utilized for current needs. Unfortunately, there are no
funds left over from capital improvements. Therefore, it is necessary to ask for special gifts in
order to Move the Legacy Forward through additional growth and outreach. We recognize that any
special appeals require us to examine our needs and our faith and ask for God's guidance as we
consider our participation in that legacy.
