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.

What's Going On?
SPECIAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
On Sunday, February 24, between the worship services, the congregation will meet to approve the 2019 General Fund Budget and to elect from our congregation voting members to the Nebraska Synod Assembly.
This Sunday evening Legacy Journey will be beginning this Sunday night on February 24 at 7 PM after being rescheduled from last week. Class kits are $129.99 and a one year membership is included. The first week is always free to attend. The class will meet in the Fireside Room.
LENTEN WORSHIP SERIES
Lenten Series on Wednesday at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM – “By My Hand, For My Sake” – On Wednesdays in Lent beginning March 6, our worship services will include monologues from biblical figures whose lives and interests contributed to the death of Christ. As we hear their stories, we will be invited to ponder how our own lives and choices required Christ’s example of radical love and sacrifice on the cross, or how we proclaim his resurrected life within us. Join us for a meal on Wednesday evenings prior to worship in the fellowship hall.
We invite you to bring your palm branches back for the burning of ashes for Ash Wednesday, on March 6. Branches may be placed in the basket in the Gathering Area.

Friendship and fellowship is the goal of the newly organized program “Tables of Grace”. We are inviting all members who are interested in coming together in their home to share a meal.

After celebrating and sharing a bit of what we’ve learned in worship on February 3rd, we will spend 5 Sundays learning about the Lord’s Prayer (February 10 – March 10) and then five more Sundays during Lent learning about The Last Supper and foot-washing on the night when Jesus was handed over (March 17-April 13).
