FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Our God is a God full of surprises.  Who meets us as we are caught up in our own assumptions, and opens up a whole new way.  This Sunday take a moment from your Memorial weekend to join us for worship.  Come to remember those who have fought and died on our behalf.  Come to celebrate eternal life that comes in Christ.  Come and expect the unexpected where God breaks in and suddenly it's a whole new world. 

Looking forward to seeing you there, 

Pastor Grant
Earlier this week, Pastor Grant gave his letter of resignation to St. Paul Lutheran Church. If you did not see this information, click here

COMMUNITY EVENTS


Luther Point Gardens
Please consider making a monetary donation to Luther Point Gardens, at Luther Point Bible camp. This summer, their goal is to have everyone who attends their camp have an opportunity to plant, tend, and harvest from their garden. This will give campers a deeper understanding of how God's creation works and how we can help it. Donation envelopes are available at the Welcome Center.
Luther Point Bible Camp  is gearing up for another Spirit filled season of summer camp! The focus this year is "Transformed Community," how we can create better 
communities throughout our world in God's name. Camps offered, and sign up information are located on the welcome table in Narthex.
