FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

"Surely the people are grass, but the word of our God lasts forever" This Sunday we celebrate the eternal Word and care of our God, as we acknowledge a milestone in the faith of ten of our youth.  It's confirmation Sunday! And opportunity to remember the promises of baptism, and celebrate the life of faith. Come and support our youth being confirmed in the gift of God's baptism. Come encourage and be encouraged by the community of faith. Come and hear the care that is poured out for you and for me in our Savior forever! It may just change your life!

CHURCH BUSINESS
We welcome Melissa as the new Office Administrator

My name is Melissa Nelson. My husband Dave and I live in White Bear Lake and we have four kids: Tyler (21), Emily (19), Jacob (17), Alex (16) and our fur babies: Baxter, Piper, and Luci.  My home church is St. Stephens Lutheran in White Bear Lake, where my extended family and I are very actively involved. In my free time I love to explore, travel, read and cuddle with my puppy Piper. I look forward to meeting the families at St. Paul's, and working in your church community.  Please stop in and say hello!
