2018 Photo Directory

2018 Photo Directory

When are the dates and times for photography? 

We're scheduled for 12 days of photography. The weekday hours are 2:00-9:00pm. Saturdays are 10:00am - 5:00pm.

January 19-20
January 23-27
January 30 -  February 3

The last time we printed a photo directory was in 2011. Since then, our kids have grown. Families have changed. And God has blessed us with a lot of new members. As Christians connected together at St. Paul, we share the same faith, the same Savior, and the same purpose. An up-to-date photo directory is one small step toward helping us all to get to know each other better. 2018 is our 125th anniversary, and one thing we want to do to celebrate is to deepen those connections even more. We're hoping you'll join us in this effort by scheduling a time to come in with your family and have your picture taken. The more people we can include, the better the directory will be. 

Look for more information at church on the display table in the gathering area. Sign up for a photography time by going to the “connect” menu on our church website. If you need assistance, contact Shelby Hahn at (920) 648-2169.

Upcoming Brunches

SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR UPCOMING BRUNCHES

Mark your calendars for these Saturdays: January 20, January 27, and February 3rd. We’re planning “brunches” those days. Each brunch will be several hours on a Saturday morning to talk about our ministry and our future plans together (and eat some good food, too). The first brunch, on January 20, is going to be for all our called and elected leaders and their spouses to begin that discussion. The next two Saturdays, January 27th and February 3rd, we want to continue that conversation with as many other families as possible.

What’s coming up in 2018 is going to be pivotal in the ministry God has given us together at St. Paul. The building project is about more than bricks and mortar. God is placing unique challenges and blessings in our path, we need to work together to understand the best way to respond with our planning, ministry, structure and function, and building. We hope you’ll be able to join us on one of those Saturdays.

Advent Services

The time before Christmas is Advent, a season of preparation for Christmas. We prepare for celebrating the birth of Jesus by remembering the longing of the Jews for a Messiah. In Advent, we’re reminded of how much we ourselves also need a Savior, and we look forward to our Savior’s second coming even as we prepare to celebrate his first coming at Christmas.

Come join us for our midweek Advent services held on the three Wednesdays of the Advent season:  December 6, 13 and 20.  Service times are 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.  Sermons will be based on the prophet Malachi.  His message warning against apathy and complacency fits our times today as well as his own.

Light suppers will again be served from 4:30-6 p.m., with a freewill offering received to cover expenses.  The December 13 meal will also be a fundraiser for the teens who will be attending the WELS International Youth Rally next summer.

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?

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!
