TO DONATE TO THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE HARVEY
Make out any checks to St. Paul’s and simply mark a special envelope as “Hurricane Harvey.” Our treasurer will forward the totals to our WELS Christian Aid & Relief Committee.
A NEW ADULT CLASS toward church membership or for review of basic Bible teachings will start up, God-willing, the week after Labor Day. We are considering both Monday morning and Monday evening opportunities. If you or someone you know is interested, please call the pastor promptly at 486-2754 to arrange a mutually convenient time slot.
NEW SERMON SERIES – Next Sunday we will begin a sermon series on the Epistle of James. Join us each week and learn about Real Faith For Real Life.
HOSTS NEEDED! On November 10 – 12, Luther High will be hosting the 50th WELS Choral Festival at the La Crosse Center. It is going to be an amazing event with 500+ wonderful kids from WELS High Schools from all across the United States. We couldn’t do it without volunteers like you! We at St. Paul’s are hosting Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School of Denver, CO. If you are interested in hosting some of these young people for the weekend of November 10-12 OR for more information on what it takes to host some students, please contact Sara Stratman (608) 486-4735.
