Worship at St. Paul's on Sunday, November 26

Dear St. Paul's Family,

We have a special treat this Sunday. One of our elders, Bob Schalk, will bring our final sermon from Ephesians on "Spiritual Warfare." The text is Ephesians 6:10-24.
  • Because it is the last Sunday of the church year, we will read the Memorial List. We lost 12 of our members to death this past year. All together, there are 25 on our list. We will toll a bell for each person, and our pastoral prayer will be a prayer for comfort of these families.
  • At the 8:30 service, the choir sings a very special arrangement of "Holy, Holy, Holy."
  • At the 11:00 service, we sing favorite praise songs such as "10,000 Reasons" and "O Church Arise."
There will be no Kid's Church at the 11:00 service this weekend. We are giving our children's workers a week off.
 
Please join us for decorating the church beginning Friday Nov. 24 at 9 am. We have lots to decorate, and plenty of jobs for everyone. We will continue on Sat. Nov. 25 at 9 am.  and then again on Sun. Nov. 26 after the 2nd service.  If you have any questions please call Lynn May 314-623-4526
 
FINAL NOTE: Stephen Ministry Training starts January 10. We need applications for anyone interested in becoming a Stephen Minister by December 10. Please see any of our Stephen Leaders: Katie Prsha, Jim Glauert, Joyce Sabine, Barb Hueffmeier, or Pastor Mark Friz to get applications and to find out more information.
 
Happy Thanksgiving to All!
 
Pastor Mark Friz

Worship This Sunday, November 12

Dear St. Paul’s Family,

This Sunday, Pastor Brian continues our sermon series from Ephesians: Mystery Revealed with a message from Ephesians 5:1-21, called “A New Walk.”

  • In the first service, the choir sings “O Great God” by Bob Kauflin, and we sing favorite hymns like “I Love to Tell the Story.”
  • In the second service, Greg and Jennifer Steimel dedicate their new son, Julian Eugene Steimel, and we sing a combination of great hymns and songs.

There is much to be thankful for this week at St. Paul’s.

  1. The Covered Entry Debt has been paid in full! Praise God!
  2. Last weekend, we raised $6,155 for King’s Kids Camp. Praise God!

Commitment Sunday comes up not this Sunday, but on November 19. Members and regular visitors will receive a mailing next week with estimate of giving cards for 2018. Please be in prayer and discussion in your home about what God is calling you to do in 2018.

In other news:

  1. Operation Christmas Child boxes are due this Sunday.
  2. Brian Kolmer and Kana Shibuya invite you to celebrate their wedding here at St. Paul’s on Saturday, November 18, at 4:00 p.m.

So much looking forward to being with our St. Paul’s family this weekend.

Blessings to all,

Pastor Mark Friz

  • On November 9, (7:30 p.m., room 5) Rabbi Chaim Eisen is visiting. He is an Orthodox Jew from Jerusalem with the stated mission of building bridges between Christians and Jews. This is an opportunity to hear from him and to de velop a better understanding of the Orthodox Jewish community in Israel and our relationship, as Christians, to them.
  • Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are due November 12.
 
Grace, peace, and love in Christ to you all,
Pastor Brian
 
King's Kids Camp Fundraiser this Sunday (11/5) 12:30-3:00

Dear Church Family,

The last three years I have had the privilege of serving at King's Kids Camp. This has become a highlight of my job as a pastor at St. Paul's. This camp is not only a blessing to our own kids but kids throughout the St. Louis region. 
 
This Sunday we are holding our 1st ever Camp Fundraiser. This fundraiser will enable us to keep camp affordable for every child that wants to attend. We still have some spaces open for this event. It includes a Spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and stories  about this wonderful ministry. 
 
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Starting at 9:30 you will be able to view silent auction items and begin bidding until the auction closes at 2:30. You do not have to be present to win. Find a sampling of the auction items on our website by clicking here.  If you would like reserve your tickets, please contact me directly as soon as possible. 
 
Thank you for helping us make this event a great success!
 
Pastor Andrew Seley
