For 110 years, St. Paul United Methodist Church has been a cornerstone of faith and community in the Grant Park neighborhood. As we begin our next century of ministry, we want to ensure that our beautiful and historic building is in good condition to continue offering our services and hospitality to our members and to our neighbors.
Due to the age of our building and our long term commitment to mission and ministry, the upkeep and maintenance of our space has sometimes not had first priority. We are a church who takes seriously its calling to be a Good Neighbor. But if we are to continue to reach out in faith to the community, sustain our ministries into the next century, and build on the sure foundation we have received, we need to make some capital improvements now. Delay will only increase the costs. God calls us to be good stewards, so now is the time. We honor God when we care for this precious cornerstone which we have received.
To answer this call, the St. Paul congregation launched the three-year Cornerstone Capital Campaign in early 2016. By March, several members pledged a total of more than $150,000 over the three-year period, and we’re now up to $187,000 in pledges from our congregation. Together with a grant from the UMC District, that puts us less than $45,000 away from our goal. We need our friends and partners from the Atlanta community to help us cross the finish line on these needed repairs. Please consider giving today.
