A new church year begins and our congregation focuses on reading from the Gospel of Mark.
Did you know that there is no Christmas story in Mark? Instead of relying on angels, shepherds and Magi to announce the coming of our Savior, Mark uses everyday people to announce the immediate and personal presence of the Messiah.
John the Baptist, the fishermen Simon and Andrew, an outcast leper, and even a Roman centurion testify that God is in the world with us. This cast of unusual characters is not only found in scripture. At St. Paul's we have a congregation of characters who share where they have met Jesus each week. Please join us in worship so we may honor and treasure how God is working in your life as well.
The ELCA sponsored a video contest around the theme "What Does It Mean To Live Lutheran." Below is St. Paul's entry. Written by Sharla DeLawter, Pastor Gary and Wayne Olsen (from an original idea by Wayne), narrated by Mahlon Moore, cinematographed by Wayne, and acted by Pastor Gary. Watch the video and find out what it means to us at St. Paul's to live Lutheran.
See everyone in church!
