Pastor’s Corner – Jan. 8, 2017

St. Paul’s is blessed with amazing staff who support our many ministries, missions, and the spiritual life we grow here at St. Paul’s.  Over the last 8 months we have been working to develop that team and to bring on a new staff member to be a part of our team.  The goal for our changing staff team is to bring on people willing to serve and empower the members of our church in continuing to share God’s love in Helena and work for good. 

At the end of December, we invited Hailey Cole to join the staff team as the Facility and Finance Coordinator.  She will be helping us manage the church buildings, do the in house financial work, and be support for our Trustees and Finance Team.  Sue McNicol our Parish Administrator will be training Hailey and then shifting to provide leadership for the Discipleship, Education, and Communications functions in our office.  I want to share a special thank you with Sue and Renata Strauss, our Administrative Assistant, as well as other staff who have provided coverage during this transition.  We are truly honored to have passionate people employed to support our congregation and ministry, and are glad to welcome Hailey to this group. 

We are excited to have Hailey joining our team.  She comes highly recommended and is bringing some incredible skills and knowledge to us.  I invite you to welcome her as you see her on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.  Be sure to share your name with her and know there are a lot of us, so introduce yourself multiple times. 

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at St. Paul’s.  I really enjoy working with both the financial and facility pieces of organizations.  After working for Helena Parks and Recreation for a number of years, first as a lifeguard and then as the Administrative Assistant supporting finances and building rentals, this is a welcome opportunity.

In my spare time I love traveling abroad, baking gluten free cupcakes, walking downtown, and getting lost in a good book.” – Hailey Cole
