Walking in Faith – Sowing Christ’s Love The mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church is derived from our core values - the essence of our purpose for existence and the criteria we should use to guide our congregational decisions and actions. Our Core Values: 1. Spirituality – to worship and to grow and develop spiritually as Christians. 2. Outreach – To spread the message of God’s love and grace by word and by action. 3. Service to Others – To live Christ’s message to Love one another. You can support the mission of our church by coming to worship, engaging in study, sharing the word, bringing a friend to church, joining a Care Team, volunteering at church or in the community and loving one another. We invite you to join us in this journey. We Worshipped: Our Response to God’s Love May 30, 2010— 8:00 am service–137 10:15 am service–59 May 31, 2010—13 New Church $849.00

We gather today as God’s beloved children to worship our Heavenly Father. We praise his holy name, we listen eagerly for his words of comfort, hope, and challenge to us, and we offer ourselves to him in dedicated service. May you be blessed as you worship here today.

St. Paul Lutheran Church is a congregation of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (E.L.C.A.). It is referred to as “Borchers” since Rev. Henry Borchers, who served our congregation from 1857-1881, advised and influenced a small group of pioneer settlers that wanted to establish a congregation in the area. This year we celebrate 158 years of life and ministry in this beautiful country setting in Southern Indiana. We look forward to many more years of growth and change as we seek continually to be faithful to God’s call to mission. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered at the 8:00 a.m. services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and at the 10:15 a.m. service on the 1st and the 3rd Sundays of the month. Christians who believe in the true presence of Christ in the bread and wine for our forgiveness and salvation are invited to receive Holy Communion. Sunday School classes are held each Sunday for all ages at 9:10 a.m. Visitors are welcome to attend.
