Join us Sunday, June 7 at the 10:30 service for the 8th Grade Graduation of Jake Appold, Hogan Bourdow, Alina Damic, Caroline Douponce, Emily EauClaire, Blake Lowe, and Deanna Zeilinger. To acknowledge and celebrate, the Board of Education and St. Paul Staff will be giving each graduate's family a dessert to celebrate on their own. Please pick up your dessert which will be labeled with the graduate's name in the church narthex after the graduation ceremony.

Next Sunday - No Outdoor Worship
Due to construction and 8th grade graduation, we won't be worshiping outside on June 7.

Congratulations, Graduates!
All 2020 High School and College/Grad School graduates are invited and encouraged to attend either the 8:00 or 10:30 service on June 7. Wear your cap & gown and we will seat you together so that we may give thanks to God for His work in your accomplishments. We will gather in the church basement 15 minutes before each service to get you organized, and at the end of the service, we'll find out about your future plans.

To My St. Paul Family
Thank you to everyone for your cards and prayers during my recent health set back. Special thank you to Pastor for his spiritual guidance. Thank God for my recovery.

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 Theodore.Hopkins@cuaa.edu ahead of time or asked live during the event. There is no cost to register or attend this event.

Stewardship
Act. 2:1 "When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place." Pentecost is the Old Testament harvest festival -- it happens around the time when the wheat and oats are ready to be brought in. Of course, this was a picture and foreshadowing of the great harvest of humankind that God means to bring in through the preaching of His Word. God gives the seed, and God brings about the harvest. From first to last, in things temporal and things eternal, we stand only by His grace. Stewardship - Is a way of life.

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.

Office Hours
During the next weeks, the office will have sporadic hours. You can reach Ruth at office@stpaulbaycity.org or call the office to see if it's open.

VBS Survey
If you have VBS-aged kids, we are interested in your thoughts. Please fill out the short survey ( click here to access survey) soon so that we can begin to make alternate plans for the summer.
Old Testament Reading
Numbers 11:24–30
24Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD. And he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people and placed them around the tent. 25Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. And as soon as the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied. But they did not continue doing it.
26Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the Spirit rested on them. They were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. 27And a young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” 28And Joshua the son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from his youth, said, “My lord Moses, stop them.” 29But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD’s people were prophets, that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!” 30And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.

Second Reading
Acts 2:1–21
1When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. 7And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? 9Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”
14But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:
17“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams;
18even on my male servants and female servants
in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
19And I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
20the sun shall be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood,
before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
21And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’”

Holy Gospel
John 7:37–39
37On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
