St. Pauls Lutheran Church
Welcome to St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Grand Island, Nebraska. We invite you to look around and get a feel for things. If you are not currently a member of our church, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services. And of course, feel free to reach out and contact one of our pastors. We are home to an award winning Childcare and Preschool Center. For more information about our Childcare and Preschool click here. We hope you and your family will have a spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and celebrate Christ together at St. Pauls.
What's Going On?
Reminder for In-Person Worship Services
We, the pastors and Church Council, are requiring people to social distance and wearing a mask during worship service. Worship services will look a little different, there will be pews be designated for each service. (Green taped pews are for the 9 am service, and blue taped pews are for the 11 am service.) Ushers will seat people. Offering baskets will be at the front and back to place your offering in. Communion will be by wafer and individual cup. We will have the service on the screen to follow. Attached is the bulletin for each service. You may download and bring your own bulletin to church. May God bless us as and give us safety as we begin in-person worship again.
AUGUST 16 - BLESSING OF BACKPACKS, AND STUDENTS!
For all students starting a new school year, join us this next Sunday, August 16th at worship, 9:00 am or 11:00 am, as we will be offering a blessing on you and on those all-important backpacks that help you keep it all together. Backpacks help you carry things, but they also promote. North Face, Nike, Patagonia, Adidas, Columbia - people notice those labels. On the 16th, we will give you a different label for the outside of your backpack; a label that promotes God's promises and the kindness, compassion, generosity, and hope that Christ invites all to share.
