NEW MEMBERS CLASSES
New member classes are happening each Sunday at 10:15 am in Room 208 through Sunday, December 15th, when we welcome new members into the congregation. These classes are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about (or brushing up on) the heritage of the Lutheran faith tradition and our church. If you're interested in membership, are already a member, or have questions but aren't interest in membership at this time -- all are welcome!
You're invited to our annual Holiday Bazaar on Friday, November 8th, and Saturday, November 9th, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm! Purchase gifts and decorations for the holidays including homemade canned and baked items (lefse, jams, cookies) and new or gently used items. Make it an afternoon and come for lunch as well - serving a selection of homemade soups and pies.
Proceeds benefit the St. Paul's Women in Mission who redistribute all profits to ministries locally and abroad.
CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
Our much-loved annual Children's Christmas Program will be Sunday, December 15th, at the 9:00 am worship service! Join us for a special telling of the Christmas story and hear some favorite Christmas carols courtesy of our kiddos. All children ages three years old and up are welcome to participate! We will begin with a required parent meeting on Sunday, November 17th, 10:15 - 10:45 am in the 3rd Floor Chapel. Rehearsals will continue in the same place at the same time for three Sundays after the meeting (Nov 24th, Dec 1st, Dec 8th) until we present the Program on Sunday, December 15th. Feel free to contact Youth Director Rebekah Cochrane with any questions!
We love to give our younger children a special place in our church family and Sunday worship, so we literally put them first! Our PrayGround is a space at the front of the sanctuary designed for children to be active participants in every worship service. This space features quiet activities for kids during worship, and our youth director is present to guide them through the rhythms of worship in ways they can understand. Kids are invited to sing and pray with the whole congregation. A children’s lesson helps them connect to the Bible stories that shape our faith, and playing is always an option! All children are welcome, and parents can feel free to stay with their children at the PrayGround or sit in a nearby pew. We hope that the PrayGround is an engaging place for children to be present in the worshiping community and is of service to parents who want to direct their focus toward participating more fully on Sunday mornings.
