FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Do you want to be happy for the rest of your life?  Happiness can often feel elusive as we pursue it - always over the next hill, in the next big break.  But God has a more counter intuitive, yet deeply rooted plan!  Come this Sunday to hear God's Word, to gather around the watering hole with friends and family, to soak in the love and grace that God is pouring out. It may just change your life!

Pastor Grant

CHURCH BUSINESS
Office Administrator
Wendy Hazzard, St. Paul Lutheran's Office Administrator, will be taking a leave from her regular duties to tend to ailing parents, and discern if serving as their live-in caregiver will work for Wendy and her family. During this time of leave, congregational members have stepped-up to cover different aspects of the office administrator position. If you would like to help in the office, please contact the office or Pastor Grant. Your prayers for Wendy and her family are greatly appreciated.
