after Pentecost
John 6:24-35
"Jesus the Bread of Life"

Gentle Reader,
What are you working for?  Is it a boat, or an upgrade to your house?  Is it the prestige or satisfaction of your job, or perhaps just to make ends meet?  Are you working for your family, or "The Man", and what difference does it make anyway?  Come Sunday to connect with Jesus, engage how He answers this question, and consider how His answer effects you and me and the work that we do.  It may just change your life!

See you there!

Pastor Grant

In the gospels, Jesus talks about money more than almost anything else.
REFLECTION & ENGAGEMENT:  What small concrete steps can I experiment with in order to work toward financial wellness?  How can our Christian Community lift each other up and support each other in working toward financial wellness?
"Give Back to Pay It Forward" is a celebration of St. Paul Lutheran Church's 150th Anniversary. St. Paul Lutheran has had a rich history over the last 150 years and we are looking at continuing that legacy well into the future. As a result we are challenging the entire congregation from, July 29th 2018 through the end of the year, to participate in a matching contributions initiative.

Several members of the congregation have generously offered to match any funds given that are above and beyond the regular weekly giving by the remainder of the congregation.
In order to have your contribution matched, please use your preferred method of donating (envelope, bill pay, online giving), but remember to clearly note that the donation is for "Matching Funds".
As the year progresses we will continue to update the congregation on the success of this initiative.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."


As a congregation, let us experience together the joy of generosity and the joy of being faithful disciples.
