FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Chaos. We work hard to guard against it, but the truth is chaos is a real part of our world and all too often finds its way into our lives. A spotless home or well groomed yard can get overgrown before our eyes. Our greatest achievements and well laid plans can suddenly come to naught and we are left in the storm and the churn to survive as best we can and hope for a new day.  Such tasks in such a place may feel overwhelming, But in the middle of it all stands our God - who brought order out of chaos at the beginning and has been standing firm whatever comes ever since. Come this Sunday to hear of the God who stands tall in our distress. Come be reminded of that god's care for you, come celebrate the fresh start that comes to each of us each week.  It may just change your life!

9AM worship with the Baptism of Alden Thomas Kubes and farewell treats immediately following the service. 

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Pastor Grant

CHURCH BUSINESS
Please join us Sunday to thank Pastor Grant for his service at St. 
Paul Lutheran a nd  to  wish him well in the next chapters of his life.  We thank him for sharing his talents and gifts and encouraging each of us to do the same.  

We especially give thanks for his gift of music. He enriched our services with his beautiful tenor voice, he wrote new music to share his love of the Lord, and most recently led our spring choir inspiring us to stretch our voices in songs of praise to the risen Lord.

We give thanks for Pastor Grant sharing his knowledge and love of the  scripture. Even for those with 50+ years of Bible study, he was able to teach them something new and open their eyes to how to read scripture to find answers for today. His love and trust in the Lord was evident and inspiring. 

Pastor Grant brought order and consistency to our many forms of communication. He shared his gift of counseling and changed lives through it.  He tried to show us how to be creative and think of new ways of doing our existing ministries. 

We thank him for his smile in the midst of hardship, his hugs, his caring and his enthusiasm. 

Our love and prayers go with him!
