From the Pastor's Desk:

Dear St. Paul’s Church Family,

WHEN will Spring be here?! Everyone is asking that as we have had unseasonably cold and rainy weather – even snow showers. The weather not only affects our bodies but our spirits as well. And yet, we are called to be people of the Resurrection – of vigor and hope and new life in the midst of a dreary climate. The Lord is Risen! And so shall we be!

On Palm Sunday, March 25 we received three new members: Janice Geider and Sandy Kunkel (who found us after Trinity, Coplay had closed its doors) and Mark Ruch, our church sexton who has joined the ranks of the choir and has found a home here with us. Please seek them out and welcome them to St. Paul’s.

Lori Balliet and Arianna Troxell represented us at the PNEC Annual Meeting on April 17. There was a moment of celebration when St. Paul’s was recognized #5 in giving to “Our Churches Wider Mission.” We are among the 15% of churches giving over $5000 -  beyond ourselves. HOORAY for us!

Our Confirmation Class of four youth will lead us in worship on Mother’s Day, May 13. Be sure to attend and be inspired.
                       
We celebrate Pentecost, the birthday of the Christian church by the gift of the Holy Spirit on May 20. Hailee Troxell will receive the Rite of Confirmation that day. I baptized Hailee shortly after coming to St. Paul’s. God’s blessings as Hailee continues her spiritual journey with us. Come have cake with her!

Lastly, I want to encourage you to participate in a new prayer group that will meet in the sanctuary beginning the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7 PM beginning May 22. Stacy Knecht has offered to facilitate this opportunity to bring our petitions to God for ourselves and for the many issues facing our world.

Many of you are missed at St. Paul’s and needed as well! We welcome you this Sunday at 10:15.
