Worship Sunday 5-21-17

Dear Church Family,

Pastor Brian will continue our study of humility with 1 Peter 5:6-11. This Sunday we will also be collecting donations for our semi-annual food drive. Donations can be dropped off in the marked truck in the parking lot. 

 
During the second service we will celebrate the baptism of Mareika Tabea Cug.. She is the daughter of Stefan and Kelly (Merrit) Cug. We will invite the children present to come forward to watch the baptism. Afterward, they will be dismissed while we sing, "Jesus Loves the Little Children." We hope to see many children in worship this Sunday.

Summer is right around the corner. That means VBS (6/19-6/23) and Kings Kid's Camp (7/16-7/21). You can register for VBS online by clicking here. Kids who are entering 4th-8th grade can register for camp by clicking here. Early Bird registration expires on May 31st. Through the generosity of many donors we are able to offer a 50% discount to all St. Paul's children. Talk to Pastor Andrew for more information on these exciting events. 
 
Grace,
Pastor Andrew
 
Worship this Sunday - Mother's Day!
Greetings beloved church family!
 
I hope we see you this Mother's Day in church. We have a gift for all the women of the congregation. Pastor Andrew is preaching on 1 Peter 5:1-5 about how Jesus, the Chief Shepherd, rules his church. Below are other important announcements:

Semi-Annual Food Drive. On May 21, bring food staples to church to donate. We will have a truck ready to take the donated food to Operation Food Search, which then supplies food to pantries throughout the entire St. Louis metro area.
 
Care for John Beck and Sharon Nadeau. The Spiritual Sisters class has put together a meal for John Beck and Sharon Nadeau who are facing major health challenges. If you want to bring a meal, CLICK HERE to sign up.
 
Huge Summer Outreach + Help the Poor. June 24 is "Shop Out Hunger." This is the new name for what we did last year, when we collected food donations in front of grocery stores in our area. We are looking for MANY VOLUNTEERS (60 would be great) to spend two and a half hours on a Saturday to care for the poor in our community and let people know that St. Paul's Church cares. Sheets will be in the Welcome Center starting June 4th.
 
Graduations. If someone is graduating, let the office know so we can compile our annual list of our graduates!
 
Help for VBS. If "it takes a neighborhood to raise a child," then it also takes a neighborhood to put on VBS. If you are willing to help in any capacity, please contact Lisa Stahlhut at LisaStahlhut@spec.ourchurchfamily.net
 
Grace to you,
Pastor Brian Bish

Worship this Sunday 4-23-17

Dear Church Family,

I am thankful for a wonderful Holy Week with a great church family. I would invite you to celebrate Easter with us every Sunday morning at 8:30 and 11:00. This week Pastor Brian will be preaching on 1 Peter 4:1-6. He will be focusing on the reality that sometimes the Christian life is not what we expect.

Plan on attending a Sunday School class in between services. This week we will begin a new section in the Gospel Project class. Now is a great time to join us for a 6-week session examining the coming of Jesus. The Gospel Project will meet in the auditorium this week.

This week also marks the beginning of a 6-week small group session through the end of May. If you would like to join a group talk to one of the pastors or you can join my small group at 12:30, Sunday afternoon, at the St. Paul’s Ministry House. Small Group attenders can pick up user guides at the big desk.

I am looking forward to worshipping with you all this Sunday!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Andrew
