Blessings of the Graduates!

Gentle Reader,
It's Pentecost!  That joyous, terrifying day filled with wind and fire as God equips and sends out God's people to become the church.  It's a day for celebrating God's power, a day for celebrating God's joy, a day for celebrating the sometimes surprising, and always transforming gift of God's Spirit among us.  Also come and celebrate our graduates as they mark this milestone and look forward to the path that God has set before them.

ST. PAUL LUTHERAN SUPPORTS FOOD MINISTRIES.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month, we partner with Family Pathways and convert our fellowship hall into a wide variety of healthy foods for local families.

We are so thankful for everyone that drops off an item or two; maybe a bag assortment of non-perishable foods.  Please continue to give when you can, as the need is always there and the Family Pathway's resources are being spread more thin, as the need continues to grow.
