The sweetest and most refreshing event of the year is fast approaching!

The annual Ice Cream Social will be held on Sunday, August 13, from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m.  Free ice cream from Nelson’s (15 flavors!) will be generously scooped for all who attend.  All of our members, friends, and neighbors from the community are invited.  Music will be provided by The Cruisers, playing rock ‘n roll favorites from the ‘50s and ‘60s.  Games and activities for all will be available.  Plan on joining the summer fun and don’t forget to invite a friend!

We will need many volunteers to help make this event a success.  Please sign-up in the Gathering Area if you could help with set-up, scooping, games, or clean-up.  Donations to off-set ice cream expenses will be gladly accepted.  Questions?  Contact Shelley Jokinen at 651-653-9332 or sjokinen@comcast.net.  


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.



Starting with the May issue the Parish Visitor newsletter will have a new option of electronic distribution. We have a number of email addresses from members already. If you would like a newsletter sent to you by email blast, please make sure the church office has your 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 are able to attend worship on a regular basis, you will be able to pick up a printed copy at the church each month. For those who are homebound or it is difficult to pick up a printed copy, we will still send you one in the mail each month.

Attention all who enjoy knitting and crocheting.  

Come spend an evening at Pioneer Park with your project, personal or charity type, while you socialize with others in the community. Originating from an idea of the Yarnsters at St. Paul Lutheran this is open to anyone in the community for an opportunity to meet other creative individuals.  Bring your lawn chair, a cool drink and your project.  Weather permitting; we will meet every Tuesday during the summer at 6:30 p.m. at the park.  If it rains, it will be cancelled for that evening.  Come when you want, leave when you have to.  Bring a friend. Questions directed to Esther Longseth 439-5436 or Chris Peterson 439-8445.


Your are invited . . .

to be a part of our mission team in Clarksdale, Mississippi.  The week we are planning to travel to Mississippi this year is October  14th – 22nd.  This is MEA week and we would like to encourage youth and families to join us!  All ages are welcome.  You don’t need any experience.  There are always jobs for everyone!  Youth 18 and under do need a responsible adult to be paired up with during the week.  We do a lot of fun things, learn about the history and culture of the area, meet a lot of great people, eat a lot of good Southern food, and we get a lot of work done!  It is a very rewarding and humbling experience and your help is greatly needed and appreciated by a family that desperately needs a home.  Please prayerfully consider coming along.  For more information, contact Carol Weber at 651-439-5970. 






On the first Sunday of each month, our Parish Nurse, Linda Peterson, offers free blood pressure checks.  You don’t need to sign up in advance – just come to the church office after the 9 a.m. worship service.  If you have any other health questions or issues you would like to discuss with her, she is also available to talk with you, or set up a time to talk with you, about these things, too.
