 8th note happyGeneral Notes... 

1)      STUDENTS in Gr. 6-8 will sing "In Christ Alone" on Saturday, March 14 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.  

2) Recorders have started for 4th & 5th grades. Please check out the Recorders page to the right for due dates and info! 

3) Thank you 
for your prayers and cards and kind words after my father died in February and also regarding the Herb Kohl Fellowship. I am humbled and gratefully overwhelmed by your care and support. I am blessed to be part of St. Paul where the caring is felt so much.

4) 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 splgrafton.org under Servant Ministries and then Media Ministry or go directly at SignUp.com:   http://signup.com/go/8Qfkxv .  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.

5) Playing piano/instrument for worship is a great way to encourage students to use their gifts for the Lord.  Often classical pieces are  fine to use in worship or there many levels of piano books with hymns and worship songs in them. Pieces should be practiced to their very best so as to assist (not distract) in worship. I want to encourage students of intermediate skill level or higher to aim for playing in church. Students at an elementary skill level can aim to play for chapel services.    Please contact Miss Bremer if you are interested - even if a piece isn't ready or not even chosen yet!

 

 

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).
 

Gr. K-8 Students will sing  "Who You Say I Am" by Hillsong Worship for 8am worship on Sun., May 17.

All students will be at the same service this time. Please note: JuBellate members will play at the offering.    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.
