First Choir Rehearsal of the Season
Thursday, September 8
7:00 pm
Sanctuary
New members are welcome! You need not have won American Idol nor read music. It is quite amazing how God takes a bunch of voices - some strong and some not as strong - and blends them together to create beautiful music that honors Him.
For more information, contact Kitty at 610-323-6229 or varady3311@comcast.net.

SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY DAY

Rally Day is the start of a new year, new friends, new teaching and new learning. It is the time to recognize both those who teach and those who learn ~ we will be blessing all educators. 
This year's theme will be "God's Love. Our Hands."
We will watch a powerpoint presentation given by Pastor Frey, and enjoy crafts, snacks and activities. All children age 2 through 10th grade are welcome. It is a time for the entire congregation to rally behind our youth!

Games, music and fun! We will provide hot dogs; please sign-up to bring side dishes, drinks or desserts. For more information, contact Rebecca or Brian at

SPLATT
St. Paul's Lutheran Active Teens
Sunday, September 11

Our role with Rally Day (between Worship services) will be to assist the younger students during the activities. This is especially appropriate as this day is also the ELCA "Gods Work. Our Hands" dedicated day of service.

Then our SPLAT meeting will be held in the Fellowship Hall after the 10:30 Worship Service. We will have activities related to the ELCA's "Gods Work. Our Hands" day of service theme. 
Come join the fun and learn how we can all serve our communities, especially the first-responders on this 15th anniversary of 9/11.

It you find it please leave a log message for Luke!
Additionally, Luke has added a Travel Bug to the Geocache. A Travel Bug is a trackable tag that looks like a dog tag. It moves from place to place, picking up stories along the way . Our Travel Bug is named "St Paul's Traveling Bug" and its code is TB7G2HR. You can track it at geocaching.com/track or using this link: travel bug​
