8th note happyGeneral Notes...

1)  Wednesday, March 6 is Ash Wednesday.  Ash Wednesday starts the 40 day observance of Lent.  As part of our chapel service, which will be led by Rev. Dr. Timothy Maschke, students will have the option of having a cross of ashes placed on their forehead or hands.  Students can also pass.  Over the next week in religion classes, we will be talking about the significance of the ash mark being placed on us, that we know we are sinners, yet we have the great promise of forgiveness because Jesus died for our sins and resurrected on Easter morning.  

2) STUDENTS in Gr. 6-8 will sing "Just as I Am" on Saturday, March 9 for 5pm worship.  We will meet to practice and line up in the church balcony at 4:40pm.   Students will sit together until time to sing (about 5:15) and then go to their families. Song lyrics are available at the right on the Song Lyric page.

3)  Helpers are needed for running powerpoint in chapel/weekend worship services (all year long).    If your 6th grade student (or older) would like to do it, please contact me. There is a sign-up on the church side of under Servant Ministries and then Media Ministry.  With 5 services every weekend, there are many opportunities to serve. The first couple times, it is helpful to have a parent sit with them to assist if necessary. Powerpoints are used, but 10-15 minutes of training will explain the unique aspects of our setup and things to be aware of in worship.



Quarter note happy Classes singing in worship...     

This is part of who we are at St. Paul. Not only does learning songs put God's word in their mind & heart, but it also teaches our kids to use their gifts in serving the Lord. I am glad we will be worshipping together.

(If there is a conflict for your family, please let me or your child's homeroom teacher know. We are also trying to teach our kids the importance of communicating when commitments must be missed.)     

THANK YOU for your partnership in making worship a priority!  "I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O Lord, I will make music."  (Psalm 101:1)
