Wednesday Advent Service - December 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Advent is a church season of four weeks leading up to Christmas. During Advent we get our hearts ready for the coming of Jesus. The ongoing pandemic is causing a change to this year’s Wednesday Evening Advent schedule. St. Paul will hold ONE special Advent Service on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 7:00PM. Fellowship Supper WILL NOT be offered before the service. Join us for this one special Advent worship service.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Worship Services
Christmas Eve Worship Services will be offered at @ 4:00PM and @ 9:00 PM, Thursday, December 24, 2020
Invite Friends, Relatives, & Neighbors!
Due to the ongoing need for social distancing in worship and the popularity of attending “in person” worship services on Christmas Eve, St. Paul is asking worshippers to make an advance reservation. Beginning Monday, November 30, 2020 reservations may be made on-line at signup.com or by calling the church office (440-988-4157). Reservation spaces are limited and will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.
If reservations for both worship services reach capacity, a third Christmas Eve worship service will be opened on Wednesday, December 23rd @ 7:00 PM. Should the third worship service reach capacity, a fourth worship service will be added on Christmas Eve @ 7:00 PM.
There will be no worship services Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, & New Year’s Day
Worship Resource for Parents
Because of COVID-19, "Kids Church" is not meeting. We hope to start up again soon! Until then, here is an excellent resource for parents to use with their children: https://theparentcue.org/faith/
Parents and grandparents are encouraged to download the Parent Cue app that can also be found on this link. This resource will provide parents and grandparents with support and encouragement for faith development. As parents, we have 936 weeks from the time our child is born until they turn 18! There is so much to teach them as they grow, but nothing more important than knowing about Jesus! This app is a weekly encouragement to parent and grandparents of children birth – 18! Check it out and share it with parents you know!
Lutheran Hour Ministries offers resources to help you reach out with the love and Good News of Jesus Christ in your everyday lives. These online courses and webinars will cover five faith-strengthening categories and use an array of multimedia elements to help you gain a hearing for the Gospel message.
LHM also offers free downloadable online Bible study videos written by pastors and other professionals. Each study has a discussion guide expanding the video footage with supporting Scripture, commentary, questions, and other features to maximize the topic.
For almost 140 years, The Lutheran Witness (LW) has served the church and proclaimed the Gospel by publishing theological essays and reflections that interpret “the contemporary world from a Lutheran perspective.”

Memory Verse Project: The church confesses to Christ, “You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). The church is encouraged to “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly ...” (Col. 3:16). Psalm 1 teaches us to meditate on God's Word day and night. It is our great opportunity and joy to read and study God's Word. One beneficial practice is to memorize the Scriptures and, in so doing, to meditate on it. The LCMS invites everyone to join together memorizing a verse together each week.
