This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Isaiah 43:16–21; Philippians 3:(4b–7) 8–14; Luke 20:9–20

 

April 7 – Lent V – “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” (Psalm 126:5). Choosing life isn’t always easy. Enduring illnesses, giving birth, caring for children, and speaking truth in love often involve suffering. However, our good Lord forms all people—and their circumstances—for Himself. And life received from Him brings celebrations that eclipse all sorrows. Whoever trusts Christ’s grace will also take hold of His glory (Philippians 3:8-11).

When People are Seeking Help…While St. Paul's is a church that is open to all persons (that is the church’s character), we ask that our members refrain from giving out any money when they are approached by anyone that claims or exhibits a need. We understand your good heartedness and your desire to help, but giving cash does not help. Please refer such requests to the professional staff or an elder, so that it can be taken care of appropriately. Also, do not forget that the most valuable thing we can give to those in need is what we teach. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sunday School Teacher Needed: We are looking for a parent or two with school-age children to take over the First and Second grade Sunday School class next year (2019-2020). Curriculum and materials are provided, but enthusiasm for teaching and creativity in presenting lessons are welcome and encouraged. If you have kids and would like to be more involved with St. Paul’s efforts to enrich their faith, please contact:  Veronica McMullen at This email address is being protected from spambots.
