Communion – not just for Sundays

Did you know that your church offers communion by request during the week too?  This is great for those times you travel, but also for those who work on the weekends.  We are more than happy to offer this on a need basis.  Please call the church office to schedule with a pastor.

Our monthly newsletter, "The St. Paul Lutheran Messenger", is available on our website and we will send out an announcement each month when it is ready and posted on the website.   We have a number of email addresses from members already. If you would like a newsletter notice sent to you by email blast, please make sure the church office has your current email address. Through the email blast, you will receive a link to connect you to our website where the newsletter will be available to download in PDF format. If you prefer,  you may pick up a printed copy at the church in the Gathering Space each month.

https://download.newsletternewsletter.com/ArtLineLibrary/h/ha/habitat_8287c.jpgChange of plans:  The Mississippi Habitat Mission Trip that was scheduled to take place in October, has been postponed due to some scheduling conflicts  of some of the “key players” of this mission trip.  The trip has been re-schedled for the work week of April 23 – 27, (including our travel days, we will leave on Saturday, April 21st and return home on Sunday, April 29th).  All are welcome to be a part of this mission trip - you don't have to be a member of St. Paul Lutheran - and if you have any interest in the mission trip, have any questions about it, or have friends or family that might be interested, please call the church office and talk with Carol. You don’t have to make a firm commitment right now, as things can change between now and April.  I would just like to get some idea of how many might be interested in being a part of the trip.  There will be more information and at least one meeting of the mission trip participants as the date gets closer.   Thank you!  Carol Weber
