Please note the Quarterly Voter’s Meeting has been moved to the fourth Sunday of October due to a scheduling conflict. The meeting will be October 28th after service. Please plan to attend!
St. Paul's Lutheran Church
An important part of the ministry here at St. Paul’s is that to families and their children. Indeed, there are many ways to minister and serve the littlest among us, but that ministry is always connected to the family. Children’s ministry is family ministry. Teen and youth ministry is family ministry. Catechism class is family ministry. So, it is crucial to get to know the families of St. Paul’s while plotting out strategies for catechesis, Sunday School, and VBS.
To come along side of families of the congregation (in both their joys and challenges), Pastor Heaton will hold “Parent Meetings” in October. These meetings are meant to be low key; your pastor just wants to get to know you! Please consider signing up and think about questions and concerned you want addressed and discussed. A basic two part-question Pastor Heaton will ask each family is, “What is one thing you love about St. Paul’s? What is one area of opportunity you see at St. Paul’s?” The goal is to begin to develop a relationship and a working knowledge of families so that the Good News of Jesus Christ is proclaimed and carefully handed down to the next generation.
A choice of three times is given to help accommodate busy schedules. These meetings will be on Sundays October 14th and 21st at noon and Wednesday October 17th at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. They will last no more than an hour. There is a sign-up sheet on the back table of the sanctuary for all interested in helping Pastor to get to know you! Lunch/Dinner will be provided at no cost.
Please put December 16, 6:00 p.m. on your calendar for “Lessons in Carols”. This is a congregational service that will also highlight the children of St. Paul’s. If you are interested in participating, please contact Justin Queen. Please save the date. All are welcome to hear the full story and sing!
