Lunch Invitation On May 20th, the congregation is invited to a lunch in the church basement following the 10:30 service.  This service will be commemorating the “End of the School Year” for Family Impressions and at our Child Center.

New Members At our services this weekend, we are privileged to welcome these new members to our spiritual family - Pam Schubert, Tim & Vicky Duley (Ahriana), Lindsay Rieckmann (Karter, Mason & Miles), Joan Schmadl, Justin & Lisa Phillips, Tom Samuel, Dan & Karen Ingraham
 
Summer Choir During the summer months we have a smaller group of singers who provide special music for our worship services.  We practice about once a month at a time that works for those volunteers.  You don’t have to sing in our regular choir to take part.  Our next practice is Sunday, May 27th between the morning services from 9:10 to 9:45.  If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Albrecht.
 
Camp Phillip Camp Phillip is a WELS-affiliated camp that provides Christ-centered programs and recreational activities for people of all ages.  Our congregation has become a part of their federation and supports them with a yearly door offering.  There are brochures on the table in the church entry way with information about this year’s camp opportunities.  Our door offering to support them will be the weekend of June 3rd.
 
District Convention The congregations of the Northern Wisconsin District of our synod will meet for District Convention in Manitowoc on Tuesday, June 12th and Wednesday, June 13th.  Along with the pastors, we are asked to send a member as a delegate.  If you would like more information about this, please talk with either of the pastors.
 
Summer Worship Schedule The weekend of Memorial Day, we switch to our summer worship times.  The Saturday 4:30 service and the Sunday 8:00 service remain the same.  The late service changes to 10:00 am.  We would like to allow sufficient time for a short Bible study between services from 9:15-9:45.

Upcoming Sunday
May 27 - Trinity Sunday

Church Picnic Please join us on Sunday, June 10th at 11: 00 am for St. Paul’s annual church picnic.  The picnic will take place after our 10:00 am outdoor church service in the large shelter at Arthur Marble Park.  The picnic is an excellent way to meet the newer members of our St. Paul’s family and also to fellowship with those we may have known for years.  There will be games for the kids.  The sign-up list is on the board across from your mailbox.  Please sign up to bring a dish to pass or dessert and also give us an idea how many will be attending when you sign up.  This is really important, so we can gauge how much food and drink is needed.  If you have any questions or would like to serve the Lord and your church family by helping organize this event, please contact Brian Nagler at 582-0796.  There are so many ways for you to help and be involved.
