THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
St. Paul’s is blessed in so many ways! Many of our members give of their time and talents without any expectation of reward or thanks. This truly is showing our fruits of faith.
We want to show our appreciation by thanking those who help in so many different ways:
Thank you to Ron and Sue Dahnert who donated the use of their wagon for the church float in the Holiday Parade.
Thank you to the teens of our congregation who helped with serving the Thanksgiving Dinner in our Fellowship Hall.
Thank you to everyone who helped serve the dinner, who cleaned up after the dinner, or who served the desserts after the worship service.
Thank you to all who brought desserts for the social. They were delicious!
May God continue to bless and keep his children throughout the holiday season!
On Monday, November 13th, the voters of St. Paul’s extended a call to Mrs. Becky Graumann to be Director of Heart♥Land Preschool. This would include overseeing and directing all aspects of our preschool.
Mrs. Graumann recently accepted our call. She wrote:
Dear St. Paul’s Congregation,
Thank you for the call to serve as the preschool director at our school. I gladly accept it
and will do my best with God’s help to teach God’s Word in its truth and purity, be a team player
with all fellow staff, and show Christian love in all I say and do.
Please continue to pray for me, our school and church, and all of our Christian congregations throughout the world. With God’s help may the Gospel message be spread knowing
that with Him, nothing is impossible and He will give us the strength to do it all!
Walking with Jesus, Becky Graumann
