Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
St. Paul's has applied for and received notification that it has been approved for a Paycheck Protection Loan.  This government loan will provide for the salaries and benefits of our called and hourly workers for a period of two months.  If this money is only used for salaries and benefits (and it will) then the loan will become a grant and will not require being paid back.   Please note that this loan will not meet the total operating expenses for our church and school for that period.   Since the outbreak of Covid-19 our overall offerings have been $45,000 short of meeting our monthly salaries, benefits, and other operating expenses.  If our offerings increase by that $45,000 per month then St. Paul's will be on a solid financial footing for the summer.  May we please prayerfully consider responding with the same generosity that our Lord Jesus has first given to us in His death and resurrection for our eternal salvation.    .    
God's blessings!

Pastor Decker
