Worship Update:

In planning ahead for April - starting on Wednesday April 4th, members of the congregation who wish to come to the front of the sanctuary at 5:30 (p.m.!!) - for a 1/2 hour of time to share faith conversations and for prayer - you are welcome to do so.  Our confirmation students have been receiving Holy Communion at 6 p.m. each week to begin their time of community building and learning each week.  After this 1/2 hour of prayer and a time to share, all who are present at about 6:05 will be welcome, along with the confirmation students, to receive the Lord's Supper.  Directly after this, Pastor Scott and the Confirmation Students will go to their learning and fellowship time.  We'll give this trial period of brief sharing/praying on Wednesdays a try during April and the first couple of weeks in May  to see how it's going.  Join us!

St Paul Lutheran’s "HCM" Memorial Scholarship

Recently, our Church Council approved the creation of the "HCM" Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship was created to honor a "special" member of our congregation. A man with a quiet commitment to helping others, and a strong faith in the mission of St Paul Lutheran Church. His gifts, in life and in death, have helped countless families and will continue to be a significant blessing to many into the future.

We will offer 2 scholarships per year (1 Male, 1 Female) to graduating high school seniors entering accredited colleges or trade schools. Each recipient will receive a "one time" gift of $2500. The scholarship recipients will be chosen on the basis of individual written essays, of 300 words or less, on "the importance of helping others". Applications will be available in the church office.

If any member of the congregation is interested in participating in the judging of the "essays", we would welcome the help, please let me know.
