S.P.A.R.K.  (St. Paul Church’s Announcements to Read and Know)                                 April 2023

Dear friends,

 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you have found our Lenten series Promised Treasures to be edifying for your faith and preparation for Holy Week and Easter. I know I have. Here are some important things I would like you to know about for this month:

  • Holy-Maundy Thursday Divine Worship at 1:30 PM in the Senior Saints chapel, and 7 PM in the sanctuary with communion.
  • Good Friday hot cross bun service at 1:30 PM in the Senior Saints chapel; 8 PM service of darkness in the sanctuary.
  • Easter sunrise service in the grove (weather permitting) at 7 AM. Easter breakfast served afterwards. Easter Divine Worship at 8:30 and 10:45 AM. Breakfast served in between.
  • We will be welcoming several new members to the church on Easter Sunday. Some are transferring from other Lutheran churches, and some have been through catechism class.
  • Our junior confirmand (D.J. Garstka) will also be confirmed on Easter Sunday.
  • Invite your friends to church!
  • The Gideons will be at church on Sunday, April 23rd.
  • We will have a special evening egg hunt for the youth on Sunday April 23rd. Young people, invite your friends to that too!
  • I will be attending the Oregon Pastors Conference at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, April 25-27.

God bless and keep you,

Pastor Don
