THE LWMS CAPITOL CIRCUIT would like to invite you to their Spring Rally. It will be held at Our Redeemer, 1701 McKenna Blvd. in Madison on Saturday, April 21st with registration beginning at 8:30am and lunch served at noon.  Guest speaker is Mr. Sean Young, Director of WELS Mission Operations. He will be speaking about the African Immigrant Project, Chapel of Improvement in Las Vegas, NV. 

ROCK RIVER AREA OWLS      The April meeting of our OWLS chapter is scheduled for 1:30 PM on Tuesday, April 17, at St Paul Lutheran Church in Lake Mills. St. Paul ladies will provide refreshments. The topic is our synod's new "Lutheran Military Support Group." Our speaker, Erhard Opsahl, a retired LPS professor and a military veteran, helped organize the LMSG to provide our own military families and war veterans with spiritual services in each congregation. The Organization of WELS Seniors (OWLS) exists to provide meaningful activity for those who are retired and/or 50 years and older.

 LAWN MOWING  We are in need of volunteers to mow the church lawn.  Use of the equipment requires operators to be age 18 and over.  Sign up lists will be available at church for mowing the large areas, the fenced childcare playground area and for spraying weeds.  The more volunteers we have, the more the tasks can be shared.

CITY PARK CLEAN UP AGAIN = GREAT WAY TO CONNECT TO OUR COMMUNITY!  St. Paul has been invited to take part in giving back to the community of Lake Mills by attending the annual Rock Lake Environmental Clean Up again this year, held on Saturday, April 28th. Teams from our community will be cleaning up Bartel's Beach, Tyranena Park, Ferry Park and Korth Park in preparation for the summer. The Rock Lake Improvement Association is once again organizing the event and was extremely appreciative of our participation last year.  If you don’t recall, we had 26 members attend in 2017.  Please consider joining us again, or for the first time, and using this opportunity to connect socially with Lake Mills residents that may not know Jesus. Please contact Paul Enger (paul.enger@yahoo.com, 608-509-5531) with any questions or to sign up.  Thank you!

YOUTH GROUP SUPPORT

"Where is the basket for donations?" That was the question many asked on Easter Sunday when the teens helped serve the Easter breakfast. Well a new model for support is being presented. The goal forward for this important ministry is not only to connect our youth with the Word and each other, but to the members here at St. Paul. There are new opportunities to show your support, like sponsoring a child or levels of support (from prayers to participating in events, etc.) Please contact Erika Haar (920-544-2226) or Adrienne Stuebs (920-988-2225) if you want to learn more. If you would like to show your support today, there is a plexiglass donation box located near the information rack. This will be left out over the next months as we make plans for the Youth Rally in June. You can also use the "Special Offering" envelope in the back of your packet and designate it "Youth".
