FROM THE DESK OF . . .
Sunday, September 18 & Monday, September 19, 2022
From the hospital room of: Jason McNair
Hello, I first and foremost want to say thank you to God, our Heavenly Father, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who has brought me and my family through these tough months. It has been our Christian faith that has sustained us, and we try to use our faith as an example to others who need to hear about the miracles God performs.
I also want to thank my beautiful Church family at St. Paul Lutheran. Through all the prayers, messages, words of encouragement, cards, funny post cards with nice poems, and financial support, you have been the definition of a true blessing to me and my family. I truly do not know where I would be in my recovery without you and your support. I am working hard to go to a rehab center and then home from there. I am looking forward to the day I can come back to church to share with you the love of Christ. For my family, we love and thank you all.
Your brother in Christ,
From the desk of Pastor Ernie Green
The wonderful support that our St. Paul family has shown to Jason and his family has been extraordinary. You have perfectly displayed what is meant to be our brother’s keeper. Thank you for acting as Jesus has called us to. God bless you.
The Anticipation of Autumn:
We may not be happy that Summer is ending, but there is much to look forward to during the Fall months. My favorite part is having everyone return to church. Vacations have ended, campsites are closing down and the days are getting shorter, so we turn our attention back to worship. I can’t wait to see everyone.
KREW (Kids Receiving Everlasting Wisdom) begins next Sunday at 9:30 AM. Middle and High School classes start then as well. Come and take advantage of these opportunities.
Let the peace and love of God guide and direct you, in Jesus’ name!
Pastor Ernie Green
