Undefeated in Christ - Join us in worship!

by Pastor Pete Panitzke on March 14, 2020

Dear child of our Heavenly Father,

At St. Paul's we are preparing for worship, giving you the choice to worship in person or online. 


We have prepared a special page on our website to make online worship most convenient to you. Here is the link.  We are recording our Saturday evening traditional service. It will be online later this evening so that you can join us in traditional worship tomorrow morning or anytime in the next week. Our Bridge service will also be broadcast live on Facebook as usual. Our thanks to our tech crew for making all this possible!


If you are joining us in person, please take precautions - refraining from handshakes and hugs, washing your hands often, and spreading out in the sanctuary as part of "social distancing." We will not offer any snacks or coffee as part of our precautions. 


We are continuing our message series "Undefeated." I just finished the written copy of the message. It is attached. If you find it helpful, feel free to share it with others. May the Holy Spirit open our eyes to see the Lord of Justice, the Lord of Mercy, the Lord of Glory working even in the midst of a pandemic.


Our church body sent out this prayer on Friday. We will use it in worship this weekend: 

Lord God, our Redeemer and Protector, we come to you seeking the help that only you can give. We ask that you spare people in our country and around the world from any harm to body and soul. Grant healing and comfort to those who may be afflicted with this or any other disease. Be with those who care for the sick and keep them from danger. Give wisdom and steadfastness to our nation’s leaders and a spirit of courage and cooperation to our communities. Calm our fears of the unknown. Use your Word to work in us a strong faith and trust in your promise to use all things to work for the good of those who love you. We can be confident in you and your promises in this uncertain and difficult time because of the love and faithfulness you demonstrated in sending your Son to the cross for us and for all people. Help us to keep our eyes fixed on you, our Refuge and Strength. Amen.

Your brother in Christ,

Pastor Pete
