Pastor Appreciation Month
From the St. Paul Elders: October is Pastor appreciation month. And we certainly appreciate Pastor Matyas and praise God for the way he has led and served us in this incredibly challenging year. We also thank God for the work of David Schultz, our Director of Family Life Ministries, who works mostly behind the scenes and is incredibly valuable in the work of the pastoral ministry being done at St. Paul. Please pray for them and thank them when you see them. As always, the best way to show your appreciation is by being involved in worship and Bible study and inviting others to do the same. And maybe even laugh at their jokes once in a while. Praise God for the ways we are blessed here at St. Paul.
Food of Faith Volunteers Needed!
Thursday, Nov. 5th - at Messiah Lutheran (Thomas and Henry Sts.) St. Paul has one last Food of Faith Assignment for this year. During the Pandemic, they are distributing the food via drive-thru takeout/pickup, so it only takes 2-3 people until about 5:30pm to get the job done. If you would like to do this easy thing for your community, contact David Schultz.
ALSO NEEDED - St. Paul Food of Faith Program Contact Coordinator - If you are an organized person and a good communicator, consider this easy ministry to help your community. This job is, in large part, communicating between the Food of Faith program leaders and the (usually only four) teams from St. Paul, assisting with scheduling and information. Call David Schultz if you would be interested in helping.
Ladies Aid Bake Sale
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the St. Paul Ladies Aid bake sale has been cancelled for this year. We are, however, planning to take preorders for eisenkuechle that will be ready for pick up on Sat. Dec 5. More information coming soon on how you will be able to place your orders for this delicious Christmas tradition.
Flu Clinic - Postponed
Wellspring Lutheran Services has postponed the flu clinic. The manufacturer hasn't shipped the flu vaccine to them yet. Wellspring plans to be here in the church narthex on Sunday, October 25 from 9-10:30 a.m.
Roll Call Postponed for 2020!
The Roll Call Service and Banquet for 2020 has been postponed. The current plan is to combine the 2020 and 2021 groups next year at the normal time. On top of health concerns (Banquet attenders are often elderly and more susceptible to Covid-19), and school building use policies, we thought being able to use the new facilities in the Ministry Center would be a great way to celebrate these anniversaries and enjoy the new building. After toying with moving it to January/February (already 2021 calendar year), it was decided to combine 2020 and 2021 groups in October of next year. This announcement is intended to serve as a general notice, but a letter will go out to the normal participants for this year celebrating every-10-year observances to let them know specifically about the postponement.
Our Video Display Team desires to add more members to help build playlists and/or operate screens for our worship services. Training is available. We would like to have enough members so that each member serves for one Sunday per month. Anyone interested should call Don Krueger (895-5737).
Please Continue to Help Show Love to Our Construction Crew

Stewardship - A Way of Life
You play a part in God’s work here! God blesses each of us with talents and abilities. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of those gifts. Volunteering is a way God’s work is accomplished with our hands. When we serve together, we build relationships that create a broader and stronger church. We then have a part in church, not just attending church.
