3rd Sunday of Lent

When Jesus spoke of the temple being razed, no one understood that He was speaking of His own body. Instead, they had their eyes set on the temporary temple in Jerusalem. However, the temple of Jesus’ body was razed on the cross for the sins of the whole world and then raised three days later on Easter morning. Praise be to God that Jesus was raised for our justification. He turns our eyes from the temporal things of this world to the eternal things of God!
Linked to the Lord
Linked to Each Other
Linked to Each Other
As Pastor mentioned in the New Year’s Eve sermon, here is the “Linked to the Lord – Linked to Each Other” page that was handed out at the end of service. While many make New Year’s resolutions to lose wight, get more organized and the like – perhaps you can make the resolution or challenge yourself to be “Linked” to more people. On this sheet there are the 52 weeks of the year listed out. The challenge is to do a random thing for at least 3 people a week. Perhaps you can buy a box of “Thank You” cards at the store and write the simple message of: “Thank You for being a blessing to me and the many people you serve each day. May God bless you today and always.” Then you can either sign you name, sign your name and put “Member of St. Paul Lutheran Church” under it, or just but “A Friend from St. Paul Lutheran Church” in the signature section. If we did these 3 random acts each week, we will be linked to 156 people in 2021. Perhaps instead of a year where people may be tempted to focus on the negative and the things they can’t do, this can be a year where we are a great blessing as members of our church family to others. These blessings can be done to people we know, complete strangers, and those who live near or far. So let us rejoice that each day we give thanks that we are “Linked to the Lord – Linked to Each Other.” May the Lord richly bless you in 2021 and always.

Thank you for your dedication to the Lord and our church family as you gather in God's house for Divine Worship each week. We will continue to have services at 9:00 am and 11:00 am until further notice, limiting our attendance to 40 people total at each service (This includes the ushers, elder, organist, and Pastor). We will continue to make sure every effort is made to ensure that there is adequate space for social-distancing between people and that family groups can be seated together.
Easter Worship Services
We will have several worship opportunities available to enable our members to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. We will be having 3 services available - Holy Saturday and our regular Sunday morning worship schedule. The service from Saturday night will be different from Sunday morning. The theme for Holy Saturday is: "Return to Church" and for Sunday is "Return and See."
