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.

Saturday Evening Services:
Will be held on the 2nd and 4th weekends of the month to coincide with Communion.

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)!

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!

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.

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