Announcements (new items on top)
Summer office hours are Monday - Thursday from 8 am - 1 pm, closed Fridays.
In July the school office is open by appointment only.
Starting in June (meaning the worship services June 5-6 and thereafter) the right side of the sanctuary will not have ropes on the pews or any mask mandates, and communion will be received the “old normal” way, kneeling at the rail. The left side of the sanctuary will continue to do things the “new normal” way, with roped pews, the far left section remaining masked, and communion with one family group at a time at each of the pre-set tables in front of the rail.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the forgiveness, encouragement, and guidance You have given to me at St. Paul’s through Your Word and Sacraments, especially through the difficult time of the pandemic. Bless my church family through me even as You have blessed me through my church family. Guide and direct us as we call another pastor. Bless the choices we make for the future in this ever-changing world. Keep forgiving my failings and help me to grow in my relationship to You so that I live today as Your beloved child. Send the Holy Spirit to focus me on Christ and thereby to give me what I so desperately need— the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, so that everyone who sees me sees the person You have called me to be, and in that way sees through me to You.
