This Sunday's altar flowers are given in honor of Floyd & Julia Appold's 36th wedding anniversary.
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.

To Our St. Paul Family
During our recent illness with Covid, and Sam’s hospital stay, it’s difficult to find just the right words to express our gratefulness for so many prayers, cards, and calls from our St. Paul Family. All of these acts of love reminded us of God’s continuing blessings of healing, protection, and presence in our lives. Please feel our heartfelt thanks. Sam & Luella Britton

Do you have an old baseball glove to donate?
St. Paul Lutheran School is looking for donations of old baseball/softball gloves for a PE unit in May. Please drop off gloves at the school if you have any to donate. Thank you!
Sunday School Has Moved!
Sunday School has moved to the St. Paul Ministry Center. We are excited to welcome children to the new classrooms! Sunday School is held on Sundays, from 9:15am – 10:15am. It is the goal of the Sunday School program to provide a foundation upon which children and youth will build a lasting relationship with Jesus. All children, preschool through 8th grade, are welcome and encouraged to come. A Youth Bible Study for High School kids will also take place in the Youth Room. We will maintain our temperature check and mask procedures, in an effort to keep children and Sunday School teachers healthy and safe. Temperature checks will take place in the Welcome Center area and masks are requested while in classrooms.
Thank You, St. Paul!
I would like to extend a huge thank you to our St. Paul family. Every prayer, card, and kind word gave us peace to get through this difficult time. God bless each and every one of you.
~Dan, Amanda, Dolan, and Ella Wills

The Ascension of Our Lord
Acts 1:11 - “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ is ascended, and Christ will come again. We live our lives in this world in the sure confidence of the world to come. We live as people who know our Lord Jesus and who know that He is coming back. This makes all the difference in how we approach our stewardship and how we care for the things of this world.
