St. Paul’s Evangelical Church
WELCA Circle Letter

July 2021

Keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows or at dawn.  If he comes suddenly do not let him find you sleeping. Mark 13: 35 – 37

As our world continues to open up for our “normal” activities, we are busy trying to catch up on all of the things we’ve put aside for the last year and a half.  We must keep in mind that God is the one thing that has been a constant throughout.

There will not be a meeting of Circle 19 in July and the other two Circle’s are still inactive.  We pray that these ladies will again find the need to meet as a group to enrich their lives as well as contribute to the well-being of those whose lives our Circle’s influence.

You may contribute to WELCA for Lutheran World Relief at any time.  Our Spaghetti Dinner and Talent Show are scheduled for August 22nd, but we need your monetary contributions now to purchase items for our school and personal care kits.  You may mail your checks or place checks or cash in plain envelopes marked for WELCA and put them in the offering,

We will be celebrating St. Paul’s 125th Anniversary this November.  Bishop Strickland will be celebrating with us and we are planning a program to reminisce about St. Paul’s over the years.  If you have any mementoes or photos that you are willing to share please contact me. They will be copied and returned. (Chris Heidt – 927-0843)

We are continuing our two services in the sanctuary with abridged communion.  If you have not yet returned to Sunday services, prayerfully consider doing so.  We would love to see you there!

Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love and he relents from sending calamity.  Joel 2:13 

In Christian Love,
