July 4th

As we look forward to celebrating America’s Birthday, July 4, may we all recall our Baptism Birthday into God’s Family. The JOY that God gives through the suffering, death, and Resurrection of His Son Jesus is the greatest FREEDOM. We are no longer dead to sin; we are forgiven and alive to serve God by being His Heart, Hands, and Feet. We are so BLESSED to be part of God’s Family. He daily provides us with opportunities to serve Him. Thank you, God for calling us to serve you.

Donate Food

St. Paul Lutheran Hunger Warriors still need Food Donations throughout the summer months; so, let us all try to bring one or two food items when we are able to attend Church this summer: peanut butter, GRAPE JAM, Stew, Corned Beef, WIDE NOODLES, tissues, toilet paper, paper towels, canned vegetables, CANNED SLICED PEACHES, CEREAL, oatmeal variety packs, SPAM, canned Chicken Breast, RAMEN NOODLES, snacks for children. We need the above food items by Thursday, June 20, for the Immanuel Hunger Program Delivery. Bless you for putting the needs of others as a priority.
