As We Gather...The text of an early Latin hymn that dates
back to the eighth century describes Jesus as the "sure foundation"
who binds "all the Church in one." Although we may wonder week by
week who will be at worship when we arrive at our church building,
we know with certainty that our Lord is there. He is there in Word
and Sacrament. He is there in the fellowship of the saints. He is
there because the Church is His Church, for which He paid a great
price. Gratefully, we await the gifts that He brings this
With great pleasure, it is an
honor to extend congratulations to Principal Michael Yurk for being
selected as the 2017 Administrator of the Year and 7th Grade
Teacher Joy Yurk for being selected as the 2017 Elementary Educator
of the Year for the South Wisconsin District. Their countless
hours of hard work, sacrifice, and excellence in Christian
Education are a blessing to St. Paul, our school families and the
Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Together, they will be
recognized at a special recognition dinner on Sunday,
at the Silver Spring Country Club
by our South Wisconsin District. To God be the Glory for the
blessing of working alongside such a dedicated Christian couple as
Principal Mike and Joy Yurk and the rest of our incredible
church/school staff servant leaders at St. Paul. - Pastor Scott Kruse
