Family Ministry at St. Paul Lutheran Church

Dear Friends in Christ,

Real. Present. God.

That’s the theme for the National Youth Gathering taking place next summer: an event where thousands of students will gather to celebrate and worship under one (huge) roof.

God is real; God is present. In the Old Testament, God showed himself as a pillar of fire and a pillar of cloud. He rumbled over a mountain top. His people saw, felt, and heard his presence. In the New Testament, God became a little baby. The power and glory of God came to our level as a tiny, helpless infant. He grew up, taught people, and healed them. People saw, felt, and heard his presence.

We live in post-Bible times. Is God still present? You bet! We can see, feel, and hear the presence of God: in his Word, the Bible, by drinking wine and tasting bread, and by feeling the waters of Baptism. We are in communion with God and he makes us His own children!

Real. Present. God. 

Praise Him!

Blessings in Christ,
Hannah
