Bells and Stephen Ministry Commissioning this Sunday, June 11

Dear St. Paul's Family,

We have planned a very special Sunday for our congregation on June 11.

  1. Pastor Brian will begin our new sermon series from 1 Samuel, "God is On the Move." Please read 1 Samuel 1 before coming to church if you want a preview.
  2. Our Bell Choir will play in both services. Please arrive on time in both services to hear the bells play a number they are really looking forward to sharing with you.
  3. We will commission 3 new Stephen Ministers, 2 new Stephen Leaders, and recommission 15 Stephen Ministers who will be recommitting for another year of service to St. Paul's. What a blessing to have such a strong lay caregiving ministry at St. Paul's, including 20+ Stephen Leaders and Ministers who have received 50 hours of training!

Between Services this Sunday.

  1. Combined Adult Sunday School will be in the multipurpose room. We will begin our new summer series, "Learning Evangelism from Jesus."

    Worship on Memorial Weekend, Sunday, May 28
    Dear Church Family,
     
    This Sunday I have the privilege of preaching our final sermon from the book of 1 Peter. The message is called "Standing Firm," and it is based on 1 Peter 5:12-14.
     
    There are some special elements to the worship on Sunday.
    1. Allan and Cindy Pavey are visiting with us, and will share a Mission Moment in both services.
    2. In the first service, the choir sings, "Praise God on the Golden Trumpet." We sing a prayer for our country, "God Bless America."
    3. In the second service, we praise God with songs like "Mighty to Save" and receive a call to action with songs like "O Church Arise." Children will come forward and Cindy Pavey will share a children's message. Like last Sunday, we hope to see many children join us in worship.
    We would like to honor all our graduates on the first Sunday in June. Please contact the church office (stpauls@stpaulsefree.org) to share graduate information for our green sheet on June 4.
