Spring Women's Retreat:  Poured Out for Justice, Courage, and Compassion

Come for a weekend of relaxation, rejuvenation, fellowship and inspiration with women of faith on the shores of Flathead Lake!

During the retreat, Pastor Peggy Paugh Leuzinger, the Director For Evangelical Mission for the Montana Synod will lead women in study and conversation regarding women from scripture whose lives were poured out for justice, courage and compassion. During the sessions, women will also be encouraged to consider women of history and today who live courageously and confidently (even in this messy world) who inspire us to also live with justice, courage and compassion. During worship on Sunday morning, the image of the Good Shepherd will guide us as we ponder guides, mentors, and models of faith who inspire us to live out our faith in the world.

Our Guest presenter will be Pastor Peggy Paugh-Leuzinger . Pastor Peggy is the Montana Synod’s Director for Evangelical Mission (DEM).  Pastor Peggy served congregations in Minnesota and Montana before beginning as the Director for Evangelical Mission for the Montana Synod in September. She served as Secretary of the Montana Synod for 11 years, and has served as coordinator of the Cape Orange Diocese Companion Synod relationship for the Montana Synod.

Peggy and her husband Steve live in Livingston and are parents to two sons, Trevor of Minneapolis and Ethan, a student at Ithaca College in New York. Peggy is a native of Bozeman. She is a weaver. She loves live theater. She enjoys time with her dog, Sheena, an English Setter. She loves the church and God’s people and finds joy in sharing that love and hearing stories of people’s passions for the Gospel.

Solar Electric Project

As part of our goal to care for creation, we're raising money to install an array of solar panels to offset our current electric demand.

We are currently raising 50% or $33,814 of the cost of a 26.2 kW solar electric system.  We applied for a NorthWestern Energy grant in fall 2017 for the remaining cost of $33,813, and we've been informed that our grant is currently under review.  We are eager to learn of the outcome of the grant process by April 1st.

As of 3/11/2018, we’ve raised $30,957 from 49 donors.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far!

As part of our fundraising process, we’re also reaching out to friends and partners of St. Paul in addition to anyone who regularly utilizes our facilities in the hopes that they too might feel moved to contribute to this effort.  In addition to the grant from NorthWestern Energy, we’re seeking a grant from the Montana Synod and are searching for additional funding sources.  We hope our solar project can inspire others in the community to move towards renewable energy sources and serve as an educational tool for other Missoula churches seeking to fund their own solar project in the future.

Please consider making a contribution to this effort by writing "solar project" in the memo of your check.  You may also choose to donate by debit/credit card or ACH on our website here; choose the "other" fund and write "solar" in the memo line.

Thank you for considering stewardship of our energy resources!
