This Week at St. Paul's

FOR NEXT SUNDAY:  Isaiah 65:1–9; Galatians 3:23–4:7; Luke 8:26–39


June 16 – Holy Trinity/Father’s Day – The best fathers guide their children to find their voice instead of stifling it. Even the youngest among us—unborn ones, too!—have a sacred privilege and vocation to take part in testifying of the goodness of our Maker and Savior (Psalm 8:2). Their Gospel-motivated voices may speak without grown-up words, but they strengthen us as evidence of how precious we are to our Heavenly Father even though we are helpless.


Father’s Day Prayer Guide Available Today: Fathers and families, please pick up your prayer sheet guide near the church office or near the Hope Center bottle return table.

Sign Up to Service in Our Neighborhood: We are ready to launch the congregation’s Helping Hand Initiative for Summer 2019. In partnership with Lutheran Housing Support, Laborers for Christ and Lutheran Social Services we will be providing much needed repairs to the homes of our neighbors in our neighborhood. All service recipients own their own homes and have critical home repair needs. Through this initiative, we seek to care for our neighbors’ needs and also share Christ’s love with them. You can help the following ways: 1) Keep these efforts in your prayers. 2) Help with tasks such as yard cleanup, painting, and neighborhood beautification. 3) Provide financial support. To learn more about the various ways that you can contribute to this project with your gifts, time, and talents, please contact: Doug Schwartz at (260) 437-8682 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
