Help Us Say 'Thank You'!
After 18 years of faithful service, our church secretary, Bev Wiltse, is retiring to take on new opportunities to serve her Lord. Help us show her our appreciation on Sunday, November 19. We'll give thanks to God for all the ways that Bev has contributed to the ministry here at St. Paul and pray for His continued blessing upon her and her family as she begins a new chapter. Please also join us immediately following the 10:30 a.m. service. in the school gym for a potluck at which she will be the guest of honor.
We thank and praise God for all the blessings we have experienced through Bev and the many lives that she has touched.

Our Sunday School Superintendent, Mrs. Megan Sattelberg, and Assistant Superintendent, Mrs. Carly Valentine, are making sure everything is ready for the start of a brand new school year. Read more about the importance of Christian education or Pre-register here
St. Paul writes about the value of the ongoing study of God's Word. He describes the benefits this way: " so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes." (Ephesians 4:14, ESV)
Paul is pointing to two big reasons for studying God's Word. First, while it could be said of any period in history, there are many different voices in our time talking to us about God. They're generally well-intentioned, but often wrong. Is your child equipped to tell the difference? Second, each of us will experience all sorts of things in this life that will challenge our faith. "Can I really believe in a loving God if... ?" The answer is knowing God's Word-- the Bible.
While there are several books of the Bible that simply teach 'doctrine', most of it contains the stories of God's people. Your child will be exploring those stories-- how the faith of God's people was tested in good times and in difficult times; what it means to have faith; and what it is that we have faith in-- in order to be strengthened and grow spiritually.

This class is for anyone who would like to learn-- or rediscover-- the message of the Bible, which the Church has confessed for thousands of years. It doesn't matter what your church background is-- lapsed Lutheran, long-time something else, never set foot in a church, or anything in between-- expect to come away from the class enriched, encouraged, and strengthened by a deeper understanding of what God has done for you in Jesus Christ.
You're Invited to...
We're asking you to commit to a series of eight 1-hour sessions in which we'll explore God's Word through Luther's Small Catechism. If you can't be present on a particular day, Pastor Stolarczyk can arrange to go through the material with you personally.
We'll meet in the church basement.
Our first meeting is Sunday, September 10, at noon. One of the things we'll do at that time is decide on the best time during the week for us to meet for our remaining 7 sessions.
