Next Steps in our Transition Time at St. Paul
Your council is now initiating the next steps in our transition and will be asking for volunteers to help.
Step one is to prepare information that describes our congregation in all respects. This will be supplied to the synod and reviewed by interested pastoral candidates. This information will also serve to guide our call committee (step two) in their search for the right candidate to serve as our next pastor.
We met in the Chapel on Sunday, July 19, after the 9:30 service and presented and discussed the entire process that is in front of us.

NAMI and DuPage County Health Department merger
DuPage County Health Department officials are unveiling plans to merge two mental health facilities into a new building on their Wheaton campus.
The proposed behavioral health services center would be constructed off Manchester Road on a vacant lot directly east of the health department's main building. It would allow for the consolidation of the department's Crisis Center in Lombard and its Transitional Services Center in Wheaton. CLICK HERE for more information
