In these days of extreme heat and drought, we all seek places of protection and hope! What better place to meet these needs than to be present at the worship services at the church of your choice. In an attempt to let you know opportunities for renewal and blessing, we are offering highlights of worship at St. Paul Lutheran Church for the remainder of July.
On July 17th, Holy Communion will be observed in a Gospel Music service. Pastor Ron Birk will preach and Dawn Hahn and Levi Hofmann will share their gifts as they present offertory music. Some hymns that will lift our spirits are: "I've Got a Mansion," "Shall We Gather at the River," and "Love Lifted Me." This is only a partial list of hymns... be there to find out what the rest are!
We continue in the Pentecost season on July 24th with a more contemporary setting. Pastor Tim Scheffel and his guitar will return from vacation, along with other favorite musicians! Some favorite hymns of the day will be: "Here I Am to Worship," "Sanctuary," "Open the Eyes of my Heart," and "Shout to the North."
The fifth Sunday in July, July 31st, will begin in a very special way, as Vacation Bible School kids will be invited to begin worship by presenting Gathering Music. Be sure and wear your T-shirts. You will not want to miss the offertory music presented by David Scarth and Dan Barton, as well as enjoy participating in music led by our special trio!
This truly has been a month of blessing at St. Paul. It began with our Patriotic Service on July 3rd and continues weekly as we gather together to encourage one another, and pray for rain and relief from the blistering heat, as we wait upon the Lord to provide relief and refreshment. Come join us for worship. You will leave with a heart filled with blessings!
