During Lent, we offer two Wednesday services:  one at 11:30 a.m. and one at 7 p.m.  This service schedule will also apply on Maundy Thursday.  Also, on Wednesdays and on Maundy Thursday, we offer a Soup Lunch beginning at 12:15 p.m. and a Soup Supper beginning at 5:30 p.m.   All are welcome.  It is a free-will offering.

WORSHIP SURVEY
ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS:  At our annual meeting in February, the worship committee was approved to prepare a survey for the congregation regarding an ongoing conversation about our worship services.  As a member of St. Paul Lutheran, they would greatly appreciate your comments and ideas.  The survey forms have been available at the church for a few weeks now, but the committee felt it important to include all members, not just those that are regularly attending worship, so they get everyone's thoughts and ideas to consider.  The survey form went out in the March Parish Visitor and it is now available online, also.  So, if you have not already filled out a survey form and would consider prayerfully giving these questions some thought and filling out one of the surveys, it would be greatly appreciated.  If you are not able to attend worship regularly because of scheduling issues, we would like to hear if there are options that would make it easier to attend.  If there are thing that would make worship more inviting and encourage you to attend more, please give us your suggestions and ideas.  Feel free to share any and all comments and ideas with the committee.  All responses will be read, discussed and taken into consideration.  Of course, everyone will have differend ideas and not all of them can be put into play, but the committee still wants to hear what you have to say and will see how all responses may possibily be incorporated into a better, more assessible worship service experience for all of our members.  Once you have your survey completed, you can scan it and email it to the church, fax it to 651-439-7306, mail it in, drop it off, or whatever works easiest for you.  If you can return them to the church by the end of March, that would be great!   Thank you for your responses.

and Easter Services

Holy Week begins with worship on Palm/Passion Sunday, April 9, with worship at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. On this morning, the service begins with festive music and palm branches waving in celebration of the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. However, the mood of worship soon takes a more somber turn as we look ahead to see how Jesus is betrayed, arrested and condemned to death.

We gather again in worship with Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday, April 13, at 11:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.  This is a quiet, solemn service that brings to mind the night of Jesus' betrayal, the night where Jesus sat with his disciples and shared with them the Lord's Supper. At the 7:00 p.m. service, First Communion will be celebrated for any students who have had instruction. Following our participation in Holy Communion, the altar area is stripped of all its paraments and furnishings, symbolizing the last hours before the crucifixion and then worshippers leave in silence to await the events of Good Friday.

On Good Friday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m., we will gather for a service that lifts up the last words of Jesus on the cross and sets the stage for the vigil of waiting until Easter morning.

Finally, on Easter Sunday morning, April 16, we will celebrate the Festive Easter Worship through the 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services.

Come join us for the annual Pork Chop and Sauerkraut Dinner sponsored by our Chancel Choir.  The date is Thursday, April 27th, and serving time is from 5 - 7 p.m.  Ticket prices are $12.50 for adults and $7 for children 6 - 12 years old.  Tickets are available from any of our Chancel Choir members and also in the church office.  There are a limited number of tickets, so if you plan to attend, get your tickets soon as they do go quickly!

The Choir is also looking for any one that would be willing to help with food preparation, serving, and clean-up.  If you have able to help in any way, please contact Edie or the church office.

Fill a bag and make a difference!  The Youth Mission Trip this year is to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  You can help us raise funds for this trip by claening out your closets.  You can bring your gently used clothing, jewelry, accessories (scarves, hats, gloves) purses, shoes and linens to the church any time between now and the first part of June and place them in the Sunday School room 109.
