New Updates for St. Paul on March 26

Dear Members and Friends,

As we navigate together through these uncharted waters we want to reassure you that you are not alone. Although our building has temporarily closed and the calendar has been cleared, the church continues on. We have been working very hard to figure out how to best serve and meet you and it has been exciting! Not only are we finding new ways to reach out, but each interaction has had so much meaning and been uplifting. Whether we have reached you through a phone call, email, a comment on Facebook or Youtube you have blessed us with your love and conversation. During this time of waiting and healing we are called to be the light and love of Christ. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” Matthew 5:14-15

To help you find the way during these times please join our services at www.stpaulequips.com/sermons, on our Youtube Channel, on our facebook page  or—new this week—by dialing 877-234-5051 to listen in on your phone.

Please note that to abide with the Safer at Home order this week, we have cancelled our scheduled communion times this weekend. There will be no communion this Saturday or Sunday or until further notice.

We continue to make congregational phone calls to check in with members, confirm contact information, and find if there are any needs. If you missed our call, you can call the office at (715)344-5660 and we will receive and respond to your voicemail. You can also email the Pastors directly. For Pastor Hulke email shulke@stpaulequips.com, for Pastor Baumann email jbaumann@stpaulequips.com.

We will continue to receive our US mail, so if you would like, you can send in your weekly offering to: 1919 Wyatt Ave., Stevens Point, WI 54481. New this week, we have opened an on-line giving portal on our website. Please click on “Ways to Give” and follow the instructions for safe and secure donations.

Although our building is not open at this time, we are continuing to operate our Food Pantry. If you or anyone you know are in need of non-perishable food, please come to Door #3 (by handicap parking spaces) in the parking lot and call the church office on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10 am and 2 pm. Food will be brought to the door when your call is received.

Later this week and early next week we will continue to find ways to bring our church together while we are far apart. There are opportunities yet to be discovered. We will also begin the process of planning for Holy Week and Easter. Be assured that this most important occasion will be celebrated in a meaningful way that will bring glory to the Lord. Please pray for this process at St. Paul and for churches around our world. During these trying times, please reach out to us. Your church is here for you and always remember that our Lord is here for us. Continue to speak to Him in prayer and praise and be assured by His word, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
