ALL ABOARD! St. Paul Moving to At-Home On-Line VBS This Summer!
Since we didn't know what we could say "Yes" to this summer, the Youth Board and VBS Directors decided to move to an At-Home On-Line alternative to or annual VBS program. Here's how it will work:
  • Register your kids, aged preschool to going-into-5th-grade. You can register at
  • Registered families will receive a take-home kit with 5 days of Bible story material and fun activities for each registered child. This material will be available for pick up the first Sunday in July (7/5/2020).
  • Take home kits will include instructions to access the online material which will includes videos of our opening Sing & Play Express, Bible Adventures, Imagination Station, and Kid Vid Cinema, as well as our "Rocky Wrap-up" closing.
  • Each family can make use of each day's and each child's material as you see fit. You can do one-a-day for a week, or spread them out over the whole summer!
If you would like to have this material prepared for your child, please register ASAP at Be sure to tell us the ages of your children as there are some different materials for the very youngest students. DON'T DELAY! The train is leaving the station, and there are limited seats on board! (Seriously, we have a fixed number of kits, so register soon!).

Help Us Show Love and Appreciation to our Construction Crew
Thank you for the donations for the construction crew! We will continue to do this as long as we can. If you would like to donate, we could use bottled water, Powerade/Gatorade, and snacks (anything individually wrapped that will not melt is perfect). Items can be left in the back of church. If anyone would be willing to help with this project, we could use a couple more people willing to put ice in the coolers first thing in the morning or fill the coolers in the evening. It is not hard! Contact Matt 415-4068 or Heidi 450-0975. Thank you for your help in showing love and appreciation to these workers!

Thank You from the Marvin Appold Family

Orphan Grain Train--Michigan Resumes Operations
Unexpectedly coinciding with the world-wide outbreak of the Corona virus, the first international shipment of humanitarian relief from Orphan Grain Train—Michigan reached impoverished, disabled, and needful people in Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia. Struggling women and men, many elderly with mask-covered faces searched through 1,400 boxes of clothing, medical supplies, and other equipment which had been shipped in November from the Sebewaing Orphan Grain Train Center. The 40-foot shipping container held clothing and relief materials all donated by caring people in Michigan. Orphan Grain Train—Michigan is currently restocking its warehouse to reach another corner of the world in Christ’s Name. You can see a video of the Kyrgyzstan recipients at or obtain other information about Orphan Grain Train at The Michigan Orphan Grain Train center is re-launching regular operations this week.

Roman 5:8 -- "But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." God did not wait for mankind to make the first move. He did not wait for Adam and Eve to come looking for Him, but He went and found them. And while we were still sinners, still enemies of God, and still set against Him, He sent His Son Jesus to suffer, die, and rise for us. God was moved by His own love and generosity and kindness. We now seek to grow up into His image as loving, generous, and kind sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father. STEWARDSHIP - Is a way of life

Trinity Time
Have you thought about entering church work? Although Concordia University Ann Arbor's annual Trinity Time retreat will not be held in person this year, a panel Q&A on church work vocations will be offered through a Zoom Webinar on Monday, July 13, from 7-8:30 p.m. Although Trinity Time is usually geared toward high school students, this webinar would be a great opportunity for anyone who is considering church work as a calling. With alumni and faculty in the areas of family life ministry, Lutheran education, parish music, deaconess ministry, and pastoral ministry, registrants will be able to ask questions about the work of ministry, life at Concordia University Ann Arbor, or studying church work. For those who cannot attend live, a recording will be available later. Questions can be emailed to ahead of time or asked live during the event. There is no cost to register or attend this event. Visit to register.

Need Help?
If you need help getting supplies and are uncomfortable going out, please contact Pastor. There is a large team of volunteers standing by to help you.
Old Testament Reading
Exodus 19:2–8
2[The people of Israel] set out from Rephidim and came into the wilderness of Sinai, and they encamped in the wilderness. There Israel encamped before the mountain, 3while Moses went up to God. The LORD called to him out of the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel: 4You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; 6and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.”
7So Moses came and called the elders of the people and set before them all these words that the LORD had commanded him. 8All the people answered together and said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do.” And Moses reported the words of the people to the LORD.

Second Reading
Romans 5:6–15
6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
12Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— 13for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.
15But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

Holy Gospel
Matthew 9:35—10:20
35Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
1And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. 2The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
5These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, 6but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay. 9Acquire no gold nor silver nor copper for your belts, 10no bag for your journey, nor two tunics nor sandals nor a staff, for the laborer deserves his food. 11And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. 12As you enter the house, greet it. 13And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. 15Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.
16“Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 17Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, 18and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles. 19When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. 20For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”
