Wednesday Lenten Service • 7:00 pm

Join us in our sanctuary at 7:00 pm on Wednesdays during Lent. The services will include a discussion of discernment and listening to God's will for us. Join us for the 5:30 pm Wednesday Evening Meals sponsored by various organizations in our congregation!

 
Make St. Paul Lutheran Church Sparkle for Easter

The Trustee Spring Workday will be Saturday, March 14. We will meet in the Gathering Room at 8:00 am. We will take care of some routine outside tasks. We are also looking for extra hands to help conduct a facility-wide inventory of the church’s property for Disaster Preparedness and insurance purposes.  Those of you who are enthusiastic to help but may not like outside work would be very welcome. Please contact any of the Trustees at trustees@stpaulniceville.com or call the front office if there are questions. We hope to be done about noon.

 
Easter Celebration Service • 10:00 am

Come celebrate our risen Lord with us on Sunday, April 5, at 10:00 am. We will be overflowing with special music, and Holy Communion will be available. Children through age 10 are invited to join us in the Sanctuary following the service for an Easter egg hunt. We will all leave together as a group to hunt eggs outside.

 
Everyone is invited to our Bible Study: The Art of Discernment

The Art of Discernment is being offered at a number of times and places so that as many of our members as possible can be involved. The study asks: "How do we know what God is telling us?" or "Where is God leading us?" This five-session study is based on the book of Acts. As we seek to determine where God wants St. Paul Lutheran Church to go in the future and what type of senior pastor we need, this exercise will aid us in defining our current position and our future goals. Please join us in one or more of these groups.
