Rumor has it that Martin Luther wrote hymns with song tunes that would have been sung in the local taverns. This way the common folk would know how to sing them. Whether or not the rumors are true…St. Paul Lutheran and other area churches are joining together for an event at the Lift Bridge Brewery. During the same week we celebrate 500 Years of the Reformation of the Lutheran Church, we will have the opportunity to sing hymns alongside of the group "Three Saints and a Sinner"!

You are all invited on Tuesday, October 24 to come and have a (root)/beer and sing some hymns. Thanks to the generosity of the Lift Bridge Brewery’s $1 per beer and $2 per growler, we will be supporting Valley Outreach Food Shelf.

*Free* pizza will be provided by an Action Team through Thrivent Financial. The event runs from 5-10 p.m. with music beginning at 6 p.m.

YOU CAN STILL JOIN OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL

Do you have children between 3 years old and 6th grade?  If so, they are invited to join us for Sunday School!  Our Sunday School is open to all children and there is no charge.  Sunday School is held each Sunday through the school year - from September 17th - May 13th - from 9:15 a.m. to 10:10 a.m.  New students can join any time.  To learn more and/or to register you child(ren), click on the link below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office at 651-439-5970. 

We have empty shoeboxes available in the Gathering Area for those that wish to fill a shoebox on their own, but we are also accepting donation of appropriate items to put together with other donations so the Sunday School kids will have a day to fill shoeboxes as a project. There is a list of acceptable items, and items that they do not want included in the shoeboxes, on the table in the Gathering Area and there is a collection box also by the table for your donations. Monetary donations are also accepted to help purchase items for the boxes and/or to put toward postage for the shipping of the boxes.

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.

It is time to think about ordering your Christmas wreath and/or swag! Orders are due in the church office on November 1st and you can pick up your order on Sunday, November 26th. Anyone is invited to order - you don't have to be a member of St. Paul Lutheran. Proceeds from the sale will go toward our donation for building supplies for our April Habitat for Humanity mission trip. For more information about the wreaths and swags, the prices, and to print an order form, click here . . . Read More
If you have been a supporter in the past, or you want to become a supporter, please begin thinking about what funds you will provide. There is no set amount that needs to be given. In the past $450 was considered the amount of one scholarship but now the parish receives the total amount to be used as they decide to applicants. Please give prayerful consideration to this request. There will be more detailed information in mid-September with funds due by November 1. This is a project of the Social Concerns Committee of St. Paul Lutheran. For more information and a form to submit your commitment to the Scholarship Fund, click here Read More
