THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE BOX FOR MAY is to support the Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem. This plea came from the ELCA’s Peace Not Walls Team. Augusta Victoria Hospital is a program of the Lutheran World Federated Dept. for World Service in Jerusalem. The hospital is moving towards becoming a specialized center in medical excellence.
THE WORSHIP FLOWERS are placed by Sue Dombach to the glory of God, in memory of Sue Goodling and to honor Pastor Gable and Jayne for all their dedication to St. Paul for over 14 years.
