8th note happyGeneral Notes...

1)  EVERYONE in Gr. K-8 will sing "Mighty Fortress" on Jan. 27 for the beginning of Lutheran Schools Week!    9:30am: Students with last names L-Z will sing at the anthem;  11am: Students with last names A-K will sing at the offering (If your family has multiple last names, please choose one service to attend as a family).  Song lyrics are available at the right on the Song Lyric page.

2) 6-8th Choir, Band, String & Piano Students can choose to participate in District Solo & Ensemble on Feb. 23 at John Long MS in Grafton. Find out more by looking at "What is Solo & Ensemble About" and the Fee Sheet for 2019. If you haven't turned it in (we are past the deadline), please contact Mrs. Sisley directly to see if you can still enter.

3)  Helpers are needed for running powerpoint in chapel/weekend worship services (all year long).    If your 6th grad 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.  Most contemporary services are covered, but with 4 other 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.      

Music Schedules (printable) can be found HERE (also linked at the top right).

Song lyrics for classes and Children's Choir are                HERE (also linked at the right).


The next time students sing is to celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week at the end of January.  We will split our families into 2 services again. However, the times are opposite from what was scheduled in October.

For Gr. Kind to 8th students:

9:30 am L-Z Families sing in Worship

11 am A-K Families sing in Worship


(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)
