Have you Thanked the Lord?
The Worship & Music Committee has planned a Praise Service for Tuesday, September 18th beginning at 5:30 pm. We all need a little shot of praise and joyfulness! We’ll begin with a “light” potluck supper, nothing too extravagant, sort of on the idea of the Lenten suppers. Bring something to share and come and be inspired to thank the Lord, sing His praise, and share some inspiring words with one another. We’ll sing familiar hymns/songs, and enjoy prayer and Word. Invite a friend to join you! We hope to make this a monthly event so please come and see what you think! Bible Study will be held immediately following for those who wish to attend that as well. The group is currently studying the book of Matthew.
Join us on Wednesday, October 18th for Potluck, Praise, and Worship. Bring a dish to share.
Needed by the Crafters:
Wine Cork- We’d like about 300.
Christmas Scrapbook Paper – if you have some you aren’t using, we need an assortment of patterns in varying sizes. Scraps will work as well.
Also, costume and vintage jewelry is still needed. Some is being used for crafts and the remainder will be a part of the Fall Fair.
Please bring donations on Sunday or leave in the office M-F 9am-4pm.
Good Morning St. Paul’s Community,
It is my absolute pleasure to announce that St. Paul’s Lutheran Church has entered a covenant with Dr. Rev. G Scott Cady as Transition Pastor for the coming year.
Pastor Cady was ordained in 1984. He has extensive counseling experience working in the mental health field, as well as in ecumenical capacities. Pastor Cady has particular skills in pastoral care, and is a veteran in Synod involvement. Most recently, he has been the spiritual leader of Emanuel Lutheran Church in Manchester for 11 years.
Council is excited for St. Paul’s to begin our relationship with Pastor Cady in the coming year. He will begin on Monday, October 16, 2017, and our covenant will remain in place until October 16, 2018 while we engage in the many facets of the call process.
Please join me in welcoming Pastor Cady to our St. Paul’s faith family. As always, please reach out to me with any questions.
In His Love,
Congregational Council President

The Worship and Music committee is looking for a few good people to join their team! Worship and Music meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm (the next meeting is this Thursday August 17, 2017). This committee brainstorms about how to make the most of worship services, works on special events (such as Reformation 500), holiday schedules and much more. During this transitionary time at our church the Worship and Music committee will be key in helping things run smoothly. Won’t you come lend a hand?
