In February, the members of St. Paul Lutheran Church invite you to join us for two important journeys back in history, as we celebrate the 140th anniversary of St. Paul Lutheran Church and also as we begin the somber journey of Lent as we accompany Jesus to the cross.In February, we will observe Traditional Worship on the following three Sundays: February 5th, 12th and 19th. Holy Communion will be observed on February 5th and 19th. On February 12th, we will begin to celebrate the 140th anniversary of St. Paul. St. Paul was organized on February 15, 1972, with a decision on March 17th, 1872, to construct a church building in Mason. We will have various special activities in the future, but you won't want to miss this worship service! Due to this special event, our Blended Worship service has been moved to February 26th, which is also the First Sunday in Lent. Special activities are the children singing, "Noisy Bucket Offering," and songs such as "You Are Holy," "Father of Lights," Take My Life," and "Pass It On."Our second journey, our journey with Jesus to the cross, will begin on Wednesday, Febuary 22nd at 7:00 p.m. with the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion. Our Lenten focus this year will be By My Hand, For My Sake. We will continue our Lenten focus on drama from last year as we weekly hear and see monologues delivered by talented members of St. Paul. The first monologue will be delivered by Eve as she considers that we are dust... and to dust we shall return. On Wendesday, February 29th, we will be visited by Nicodemus. These Wednesday evenings will be powerful worship experiences and great preparation for the sadness of Good Friday and the glory of Easter Sunday.We invite you to join us on both of these journeys as we give thanks for the brave men and women who were pioneers of our faith and for Jesus, who took our sins upon His own shoulders as He journeyed to His death on the cross.
