FESTIVAL CHOIR
Would you like to sing in a choir in church but find that it is difficult to commit to a weekly practice? St. Paul has an “event” choir, the Festival Choir, that meets to prepare music for Christmas and Easter. Practices are kept to a minimum. Practice disks or audio files can also be used when rehearsal availability is limited. All members of St. Paul are invited to join in this choir.
 
St. Paul Festival Choir will again be joining their voices with the Praise Singers to sing for the Christmas Eve 3:00 and 5:00 services as well as the 9:00 AM Christmas Day service. 
 
Starting November 28, Festival Choir members are welcome to attend the Praise Singer practices on Tuesdays, from 7:00-8:00. Additional practices that have been scheduled in case you can’t make it to the Tuesday practice are:
Wednesday, November 15 - 6:30 PM
Wednesday, November  29 -  6:30 PM
Wednesday, December 6  -  7:20 PM (after the midweek Advent service)
Wednesday, December 13  -  7:20 PM (after the midweek Advent service)

Home Visits

We’re excited to have Pastor Nass as our new pastor at St Paul this fall. He wants to get to know all of you, and the other pastors would like to deepen their connection with you, too. So we, your pastors, have been putting together a plan to visit all the members of St Paul this fall. Here’s the reason: We want to serve the whole congregation. At the same time, we want to serve you and your family personally. We know St Paul is a large congregation, and we don’t want anyone to be left out. Our plan is that one of us would sit down with you to hear from you how life has been lately, where you’re at in your faith, and how we can serve you as your pastors.

We’re planning each visit to be about 45 minutes. We’d be happy to come to your home, though if you prefer another location, just let us know. We’re excited to get going with this and would like to start scheduling visits for the week of September 10th. Kyra Lostetter will be helping us schedule the visits. You can fill out an online registration form by clicking the button below to let her know which days of the week and times work best for your family. If you need assistance, Kyra’s email address is homevisits@stpaullakemills.org.

We’re looking forward to being able to spend some time personally with you!

Lakeside Spring Musical: Is There a Doctor in the House?

to Apr 29

Lakeside Spring Musical: Is There a Doctor in the House?

  • Lakeside Lutheran High School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

is set for two public performances, on Friday and Saturday, April 28-29, 7 pm each night. Reserve your tickets by calling 1-800-838-3006; or llhs.org/drama.

If Moliére could see this Western farce of his medical plays, he’d laugh himself silly! Lucy Canary, the mayor’s daughter, loves Lester Goodbe, but her oppressive father insists that she marry Otis Lackginger, a rich, old coot with one foot in the grave. Lucy refuses, but when her father insists, she fakes losing her voice so she can’t say “I do.” Is there a doctor in the house?! Yes — three, in fact, and what a passel of phony medics they are! Dr. Pillpurge, the town quack has pills for every ailment. Medicine show con artists Dr. Abracadabra and his assistant, Princess Falling Star, make Lucy drink the foulest -tasting tonics imaginable. What has Lucy gotten herself into?! Maybe her friends can convince Gypsy Hagg to pretend to be a doctor and prescribe “true love” as the only cure. These doctors and their rapid-fire jokes, sight gags, slapstick comedy, and the funniest operation scene ever witnessed will leave your audience in stitches!
