FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Unworthy.  It's a bitter and ugly word.  How much of our lives is spent in trying to prove our worth, our value, in a world that is quick to judge and slow to embrace.  And yet, deep down we know our flaws and failings, we know when and how we have fallen down, and dread the day our brokenness comes to light.  This Sunday walk with Isaiah and Peter as they come face to face with their unworthiness in the presence of God's glory.  And along the way, encounter the God who doesn't back down in the face of our unworthiness, but calls us into a right relationship deeper, richer and fuller than any worthiness we could muster.  The Master is calling.  Come, and hear.  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 starting Tuesday, February 5th. Folks have come together well, and the transition to the temporary team is going smoothly. 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.
