Announcements

Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church!
We believe that the door to salvation is always open. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Security Measures
Please remember that the front entrance will remain accessible before, during and after worship service but all other doors (basement & side doors) will be locked 10 minutes after services begin. Our church is committed to making sure everyone arrives and leaves our services safely and these measures have been taken to provide a safe and secure place for our congregation to worship.

Voter’s Meeting:
The Voter’s meeting scheduled for this Sunday, January 13th has been postponed to the following Sunday, January 20th at 11:30 a.m. due to possible inclement weather this weekend. We hope everyone stays safe this weekend!

Ladies Aid:
Will NOT have a meeting in January.

Sponsorship:
A member of the congregation has recently been diagnosed  with breast cancer. She has two children attending our Child Care Center full time. She will be enduring many expenses over the next 1-2 years along with extensive time off work. If you would like to help sponsor her children at the daycare to ease the burden for her, please see Pastor Kopper, Jay VanDieren or Sara in the office. So far, we have received donations of $550/month (about 1/2 of the total due)! Any special offerings can be made directly to the church. One time donations or pledging as little as $10 a month can make a huge difference for this family!

AED Project:
Fundraising will continue for the AED (Automated Exterior Defibrillator) project until we reach our goal (close to $2,000). We hope to continue to have the support of the congregation in obtaining this very important and life saving device!

Radio Broadcasts:
Please contact the church office if you would like to sponsor a radio broadcast of our Sunday morning worship service which can be heard on KRLL-1420 AM. The cost is $130.00 per broadcast. Dates available are: January 20 and 27.

Lutheran Hour Broadcasts:
Available dates for 2018 are on the calendar. If you wish to sponsor a broadcast please see Sara in the office.

2019 Offering Envelopes:
