two-year anniversary: March 31



March 31st signifies the end of the second year of our three-year Tell the Next Generation building campaign. 

While the building has had some weather-related setbacks, we rejoice at the progress made and financial donations received. Your generous donations have allowed us to keep our debt down. 

Thank you for helping to proclaim the Gospel to our children and the St. Louis community for generations to come.

march building committee report


As you can see, the new three-story school building at St. Paul’s north campus is coming along nicely! The building will be 32,000 square feet, and will serve students from kindergarten through eighth grade. We are building a state-of-the art new school, with facilities to match our excellent faculty and academics: a STEM science lab, smartboards in every classroom, and flexible learning spaces.

The building committee has been meeting weekly with our general contractor, K&S, and our architect, Ittner, to work though design details, and the construction schedule. The weather has been a frequent challenge, but we continue to focus on building an excellent building, and managing costs. We are hopeful to be complete in May; our faculty is excited to move into the new school over the summer, and prepare for the first year in the new school!

The new school building at the north campus will allow St. Paul’s to serve 50 new students at the Early Childhood Center at our south campus, increasing our capacity there from 110 to 160. This will be a ministry outreach to the community, serving young families who can get to know our pastors and hopefully our church and school also.

Thanks to all from the congregation for their generous support of the school building project at St. Paul’s. Please let Pastor Thomas, principal Janet Profilet, congregation president Dave Ziegler, or building committee chairman Mark Cannon know if you have any questions or feedback. 

God has blessed our school ministry for over 170 years, and we look forward to the chance Tell the Next Generation about the good news of Jesus Christ for many years to come!
