WE WELCOME THOSE who are baptized into Christ and who believe that Christ’s body and blood are truly present when we eat the bread and drink the wine to join us for Holy Communion.  Grape juice is available in the middle section of each Communion tray for those who wish it.  Children who do not yet commune are welcome to receive a blessing from the pastor.

OUR ST. PAUL CONGREGATION COUNCIL voted unanimously on September 9, 2019, to hire HEATHER MCFARLAND as our new office manager.  She will most likely begin her office training this week under Debbie Nebgen.  As we welcome Heather, we also are deeply thankful for Debbie’s 34 years of administrative service to St. Paul, as she prepares for retirement at the end of this year.

MEXICAN PILE-ON LUNCHEON is scheduled for Sunday, October 6.  This is the annual fundraiser that helps defray the cost of children attending summer church camp.  A sign-up sheet has been placed on the table in the narthex for donations of food for the event.  Your help is needed to make this event a success!

“CHRIST IN OUR HOME” devotionals for October, November and December have been placed at each of exits.  Please pick up your copy today!
