ST. PAUL’S EV. LUTHERAN CHURCH’S MISSION STATEMENT:
We, the members of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran congregation are here to share the truth of God's Word.  We use the message of Christ to nurture one another that we might be equipped to spread the message of Christ to all people.   


Bring the KidsOur congregation enjoys the “worshipping family”.  Children who act up are not viewed as a bother to worship.  We’re glad they’re here!
However, if you feel the need, a “comfort room” for parents with small children is available complete with speakers and a window looking into the worship area.  Please find this room to your right when entering the narthex from the sanctuary or ask an usher for assistance.  You will also find children’s church bags, a diaper changing station, a restroom, and age appropriate books there.

Mission Prayer - Martin Luther College – Heavenly Father, we pray for Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minn., where we train our future pastors, teachers, staff ministers, and missionaries. Thank you for the recent blessings to the college including the Betty Kohn Fieldhouse, increased donations for financial aid, and encouragement extended to students from people across the synod. Bless Martin Luther College as they carry out a new strategic plan. Lead us, Lord, to continue making our ministerial education schools a priority so that our church body can spread the message of your grace in Jesus Christ. Amen.

INSTALLATION SUNDAY, FEB. 5TH  The following newly elected will be installed during the service:  President–Dale Bode, Vice President–Marlin Petzel, Secretary– Scott Schmidt, Treasurer–Mitch Koepp, Financial Secretary–Dwight Grabitske, Board of Elders–Rick Koepp & Keith Eggergluess, Board of Education–Nick Doetkott, Board of Maintenance–David Wendinger
 
THE ALL COMMITTEE MEETINGwill be held Monday, Feb. 13, at 6:30 p.m. A delicious free-will supper will be prepared by Dave Hansen.  Thank you Dave!
 
High School on up for MLC Volleyball See Mr. Kaesermann to make a team for the MLC volleyball tournaments in March.  There is a woman’s tournament and a men’s tournament.  See him for details by Feb 22nd.
 
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON BIBLE CLASS will meet this week, Wednesday, February 8, at 2:00pm in the basement.  We are at the end of a series called “Timely Topics, Timeless Truths.” This week we talk about bankruptcy.  Does my faith let me file? This is a topic we may not have thought too much about. We invite you to join us as we discuss this subject.
 
SIGN-UP SHEET for FRIENDSHIP SUNDAY is in the back of church ready for you to sign up and help. This is next Sunday, Feb. 12. After the service there will be a potluck meal.  Here is where we can really use your help. It would be greatly appreciated.
 
FRIENDSHIP SUNDAY is February 12   What does that mean for you? Simply stating it is inviting a friend to church with you next Sunday.   Maybe you know an individual or a family who doesn’t attend church, or doesn’t go to church very often or doesn’t have a church home. This could be a relative – child, parent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or a friend, neighbor, co-worker, acquaintance, or whoever. Invite that person or family to come to church with you that day. You might even pick up that person and bring him/her along with you.  Maybe you could offer to sit with that family in church that day. After church we are hosting a Friendship Potluck Meal.  Invite your friend(s) along to get them to meet others in our church. (Please bring a large dish to pass. Tell your friends that they are invited to share our meal as our guests. They need not bring a dish to pass.) After the meal we will be playing Bingo (which is free) with prizes.
 
St. Paul’s Lutheran School’s Silent Auction will start on Ash Wednesday, February 22, and run until Saturday, March 18, ending at 6:00 P.M.  Auction items will be set up in the church auditorium as before, but this year all bidding will take place online.  The auction link will be sent out as soon as it’s available after all donations are in.  Auction donation sheets are located in the narthex.  Items are due at church or school by Friday, February 17.  Contact Judy Petzel if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support of our school!
 
KWIK TRIP CAR WASH CARDS ARE STILL AVAILABLE5-count Ultimate Car Wash card ONLY $36; regular price $50 – a SAVINGS of $14! Contact Jenny or Darv Scherer.
 
Food ShelvesMore people are using the food shelves than ever before.  Like our own shelves, the Food Shelves constantly need to be restocked.  The grocery stores have specials each week, some items are “buy one get one free”.  Share with those in need. 
 
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.   Hebrews 13:16
