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.
We are now able to stream live to both Facebook and
YouTube simultaneously. To use Facebook, simply go to the church's page (www.facebook.com/stpaulfrankenlustbaycity

Hot Lunch "Takeout Thursdays"
St. Paul Hot Lunch is excited to introduce "Takeout Thursdays" in 2021. Each Thursday, we will be ordering takeout from a local restaurant and offering these meals at regular hot lunch rates. We are looking for Thrivent Action Team gift cards or other donors willing to help sponsor these meals. Donor support of these meals will allow us to apply excess funds as a fundraiser for the Hot Lunch program. We look forward to partnering with and supporting local restaurants. If you are willing to donate toward this cause or apply for a Thrivent Action Team, please contact Heidi Schultz at school (684-4450).

Thank You from Tom DePrekel
I would like to thank all of those who have been praying for me during my recent heart triple bypass ￼surgery￼, nd my continued journey toward recovery. I have some wonderful caretakers among my siblings, and I’m recovering at Burt Lake. Again thank you all for your prayers and your concerns. Amen!
Thank You! Thank You!
Thank you a thousand times for all the generous gifts, cards, and (most importantly) prayers this Christmas season. We feel nothing but joy to be a part of the St. Paul family! - Pastor and Valerie
Stewardship - A Way of Life
Isaiah 60:6b – “They shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall bring good news, the praises of the LORD." Faith in God moves the heart toward thanksgiving, which moves us toward making offerings to the Lord in His House. It’s simply must overflow into sacrificial giving to the Lord. What Isaiah prophesied, the Wise Men did, and we still do today by giving with a thankful heart.
