Worshiping Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM at 65 – 11 St. East
How do we portray St. Paul’s pictorially. You have likely heard that our grand old building has been sold. A Baptist congregation is taking on the mammoth job of repairing it, hoping to be able to move in and hold Services there as early as Christmas. We Presbyterians are naturally grieving having to let go of a ‘dear friend’ who has served us so well over the generations and which has housed so many significant moments and events in our lives. At the same time, we are grateful that the building will continue to be a sacred space for Christian worship and service, as well as a lasting landmark in downtown Prince Albert.
The congregation of St. Paul’s continues on. We worship in fellowship with Wesley United Church each Sunday morning at 11:00am at 65 Eleventh Street East. Our Interim Minister, the Rev. Ted Hicks, co-leads the Services with Wesley’s Minister, the Rev. Tony Thompson. Ted is also available to serve the pastoral needs of the Presbyterians and to provide leadership for St. Paul’s in mapping out its future. This relationship with Wesley is working well and, although it is only a temporary arrangement, both congregations are exploring whether or not to make it a more formal ecumenical shared ministry.
More than anything, the mission of St. Paul’s continues as strong as ever. We have provided funds, for example, to send close to 120 children and youth to summer camp this year – helping to strengthen the next generation of citizens and community leaders in Prince Albert and nearby communities. Most of these young people would not have been able to go to camp except with this assistance. Although St. Paul’s spearheaded these fundraising efforts, the whole community is to be commended for its support in so many different ways. More than money, though, this outreach has connected personally with the young people and their families to create on-going supportive and empowering relationships. The work of Christ is our growing edge, no matter what our future holds – or where it is housed.
