Save the Dates: September 17-18-19, 2022 for God’s People Gather at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church
It’s not the same, is it? COVID-19 changed everything for our congregation. For a time, all of us had to learn how to worship God online from home. We used virtual ways to stay connected to each other—to maintain our sense of Christian community. We also adapted how we serve each other and our neighbors while remaining socially distanced. But it’s just not the same, is it?
When we look at God’s blessings from the pandemic, one of the biggest is that we were reminded in so many ways of the joy we experience when God’s people gather. There is just no replacement for it.
Now it’s time to celebrate! Let’s celebrate being able to gather together in-person again. Let’s celebrate the joy we experience as a family of believers when we worship together—fellowship with each other—serve together—and take the Lord’s supper side by side.
At each worship service on September 17-18-19, we will celebrate as a church family and praise God, together in-person at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Let’s praise God for keeping his people safe and our congregation together. Psalm 26:8 says, “I love the house where you live, O LORD, the place where your glory dwells.” This is why we gather.
Please join us for in-person worship that weekend with your church family. Likely you are busy with many things this Fall – but make this day a priority for St. Paul’s. Check your calendars, circle the time of your favorite service on it, and make plans to attend. It will be more special with you and your family there. We will have special music, treats, and much more.
If you haven’t seen a St. Paul’s family member or friend at in-person worship for a while, personally reach out to welcome them back. We pray this effort will help more members/friends engage in closer contact with the Gospel of Jesus Christ at St. Paul’s. And you don’t have to wait to engage with your Christian family here – come to worship this week.
If you have health concerns due to COVID-19, please contact our pastors immediately in the church office 507-354-3641 so they can better serve you with God’s Word & Sacrament.
Look for more details coming soon about this celebration weekend.
