Announcements

**ALL ACTIVITIES (INCLUDING WORSHIP SERVICE) CANCELLED THROUGH END OF APRIL. THE CHURCH OFFICE IS ALSO CLOSED TEMPORARILY**

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.

Thrivent Members:
Many of you, in addition to Action Team Funds, have Thrivent Choice Dollars. These funds build up throughout the year and expire the following March. Choice Dollars from 2019 will expire on March 31. If you have not already done so, please either:

Old Bibles to Donate?
Do you have any old bibles sitting around that you are not sure what to do with? Maybe they have some wear and tear so you got a new one or maybe you switched to a different translation. Please consider donating any old bibles to the Ladies Aid. We will collect them in a box in the Narthex to be used in the mission field. Thank you!

Gift Cards to benefit Child Care Center
St. Paul’s Child Care Center is selling gift cards! This is a great way to help the daycare with your normal everyday shopping and gift card giving on birthdays and Christmas!! Earnings from gift cards sold will help our Child Care Center keep rates affordable and provide an emergency fund.  At this time, we will only take paper orders paid by check or cash.  Order forms are available in the Narthex on Sunday mornings following worship service, or by clicking the link below and turning your completed form in to the church office. Gift cards purchased will be available for pickup by the following Sunday.  If you have any questions, please contact Diane Weicken at 573-690-6647. Thank you for your support!
