The Lord's Supper is celebrated here in the confession and glad confidence that our Lord, as He says, gives not only bread and wine, but His very body and blood to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sin. In joyful obedience to the clear teaching of our Lord Jesus those are invited to His table who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us. They show forth His death until He comes. Because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and so are unable to receive the Sacrament are invited to meditate on God's Word in the distribution hymns and pray for the day when divisions will have ceased.
Altar flowers are placed in honor of Mike & Cindy Appold's 36th anniversary.

Sunday School Teachers Needed
The St. Paul Sunday School program is blessed to have some returning teachers for the 2021-2022 school year, but we still have a need for several classes. Materials are provided and lessons are fun and simple to teach. The time commitment varies, depending on the number of teachers per class. Sunday School cannot succeed without our dedicated teachers, so please prayerfully consider being a part of our program. Sunday School begins, Sunday, September 12. Contact Vicki Begick (525-3733) or Lynn Hendrick (450-1969).
