You'll be able to by the end of the evening, promise. Come and learn, be encouraged, and praise God in prayer and creativity! Thursday, 2/27, in the school auditorium, 6:30-8:30.

Registration Is Open For The 2020-2021 School Year
Congregation members and current school families may now enroll for the 2020-2021 school year! Registration will open to the community on March 1, 2020. A $75 preschool registration fee will reserve your child’s spot for next year. Information and enrollment forms are available in the school office. If you desire your child to receive a Christ-centered education, please stop in the office to enroll your child. If you would like a tour and other information, please call the school office at 989.684.4450 to make arrangements.

Scrip Gift Cards
Did you know St Paul sells gift cards to many places in the Tri City area like Meijers, Walmart (which can be used at Sams), Dicks, Cabela's, Speedway, Kohls, JCPenneys, Joann Fabric, Cracker Barrel, Bob Evans, Red Lobster, and so much more?!? These gift cards DO NOT cost you any extra money. How it works is St Paul earns a percentage from each card that we sell. It is an easy way to give money back to St Paul without costing you anything. Scrip cards are available at school all day Monday-Thursday and until 1pm on Fridays.

Call to Manistee
Lisa Stanley has decided to decline the call to Trinity Lutheran School in Manistee, Michigan, and to continue her ministry here at St. Paul.
