Youth lock-in postponed

The youth lock-in at the YMCA has been postponed. Due to low registration, we have made the decision to postpone the event until (looking towards early 2020 for a reschedule.) We are looking for team members to help us plan the revamped event.

All Saints’ Day Remembrance

ALL MEMBER INVITATIONAL EVENT

Sunday November 3rd @ 8:00 am & 10:30 am

We wanted you to be the first to know! You are appreciated as a vital member of St. Paul’s. Yes – you!

Upon becoming members we all vowed to support our church with our prayers, our presence, our gifts and our service. Every time we act on one of these vows we enrich our church community.

All members (saints) are therefore invited to join us on All Saints’ Day to celebrate all Christian saints, known and unknown. This is a day for all of us to give thanks for as many Christians from the past as we can remember, especially if their lives and teaching contributed something special to ours. A bell will toll for each church member who died this past year. Non-member friends and relatives may have their names placed in a special memory book. Everyone will have the opportunity to light a candle in special commemoration of their loved ones. We give God solemn thanks for the lives of these individuals and celebrate Christ’s victory over death!

All Saints’ Day is the festival day which reminds us of our connectedness as Christians. We hope you will join us for this celebration as well as invite friends, relatives and neighbors who lost a loved one this year. Special invitation cards will be available in the pews during the entire month of October.

Troop 252 Eagle projects

We – Troop 252 & St. Paul’s has had two Eagle Scout projects completed onsite that will be enjoyed by the community for many years to come.

Tucker Green replaced the two rock walkways to the playground with concrete- running 218 hours time donated and $576 in materials that were not donated.  Hunter concrete brought all tools and several men that worked much of the day.

A bit of spare concrete was even wheelbarrowed over to a pot hole in the front parking lot!

 

Connor Rafferty took care of the narthex painting that also allowed light bulbs replaced (using the scaffold) & cleaning of some of the glass windows.  Hours (we know more than 14 people were involved) and cost are not in yet for that project just recently completed.

RSP painting donated supplies/materials, scaffold and got Sherwin Williams to donate the paint!

Unfortunately Only 6 of 10 bulbs by the alter could be replaced with that particular scaffold (too short), they did get the two bulbs I donated for the narthex swapped out.

I’m proud of these Scouts.

Keep in Touch,

Rob

Proverbs 22:6 Education Fund

St. Paul’s Lutheran has established the  ‘Proverbs 22:6 Education Fund.’  It was born from a congregational member’s small gesture, as they assisted a family within our Extended Care program who needed a helping hand. A simple gift turned into a mission, which now works to serve the families of both St. Paul’s Lutheran School and Church.

More details of this exciting mission can be found at:

“Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
