Celebrating God’s Goodness to St. Paul’s
This weekend at worship you will receive information about our anniversary offering called A Cool Million. Watch a short introductory video here and read A Cool Million brochure attached. By God’s grace, we have already received gifts, plans-for-giving and hoped-for-gifts of nearly $450,000. Gifts and plans-for-giving will enable us to begin improvements this summer. Make a one-time or recurring gift online from a credit card, checking or savings account here. A copy of the Cool Million brochure is attached here.
We are also blessed to be the home of Awake and Alive. The summer session will be Sunday, June 10 and will be live-streamed so that people of the 18 – 25 year old generation all over the country can participate. Watch for the May Forward in Christ which contains a feature article about this ministry. (Subscribe here.)
Worship with Us this Weekend
Last weekend’s snow cut our on-campus worship attendance almost in half. But our online attendance skyrocketed! We had 91 live viewers (Website, Facebook, YouTube). Over the last few weeks our Good Friday and Easter services received over 150 views.
We would love to see you in person on campus, but if you can’t be here, join us live at The Bridge Sundays at 10:15 am or within 24 hours you will see the Traditional service message here.
Prepare for Worship
What does Jesus’ sitting at the right hand of God mean to you? It was the account of Stephen’s martyrdom that made me understand the comfort that this truth can give. Join us this weekend as we see our part in God’s story. God grant that we might be Steadfast Like Stephen.
"Your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus" (Revelation 1:9),
