Leadership Training and Discipleship at Gull Lake Centre
This summer, Macreena and Nathaniel Schurek attended the Leadership Training and Discipleship (LTD) program at Gull Lake Centre. This program is one of two main priorities at the centre (the other being summer camps). LTD is a three-year, experiential learning program for High School students. Macreena is in year 1 and Nathaniel is finishing off year 3. During the three years, they are taught about leadership with focuses upon personal development, social justice, evangelism, communication, and teamwork through experiences in spiritual formation, cabin leading, inner-city service, mountain hiking, and more. The program exists to disciple students to encounter God as life-long, transformed participants in the Kingdom. They are both grateful for the prayers, encouragement, and financial support they have received from St. Paul’s, and will be available to talk to after church. For more information, please visit and

St. Paul’s is Recruiting Service Team Volunteers!!
If you are not currently part of a service team at St. Paul’s, it is a great way to get involved and get to know people. The service team members read the readings, take the offering, serve as greeters, and help with coffee cleanup the weeks they are scheduled (6-week rotation). We would love to add a person or two to a couple of the teams as we enter the new school year so if you would like to get involved in this way, please contact the office or talk to RJ any time you see him.
