WELCOME TO WORSHIP
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Paul’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray that your soul will be strengthened by the good news of God’s forgiveness through Jesus.
TODAY’S WORSHIP THEME
The last couple of weeks we’ve been seeing what a blessing God’s Word is for us. Today we celebrate another blessing God gives along with it: shepherds to guide us in that Word. The readings for today reveal God’s heart for his people and his desire for them to be led by his Word in its purity. What a gift it is then that God gives shepherds to help do just that!
