As Christians, how can we more effectively meditate on the Psalms and use their wisdom for our spiritual nurture and growth? Spend four evenings in September with us as we discover the treasure of God's Word found in the Psalms.


St. Paul's is pleased to continue its tradition of inviting special guest lecturers — each well-versed in their theological subject matter — to lead our institute.


This fall, our Institute of Theology is led by Dr. Timothy E. Saleska, professor of Exegetical Theology and dean of Ministerial Formation at Concordia Seminary. Dr. Saleska is recognized as a lecturer, speaker, writer, and commentator on the Psalms.

Fall Study of Ecclesiastes: Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, sought happiness all his life. After trying every conceivable means of obtaining it on the secular level, he reached the conclusion that true happiness cannot be obtained without God. The things “under the sun” do not satisfy. As St. Augustine expressed, “Man was made by God; man was made for God; and man shall find no rest till he finds rest in God."


Winter/Spring topics: Living Way Bible study begins with a study of Ecclesiastes in September and October, then moves to great figures of the Old Testament in November and December, follows with 1 Peter and 2 Peter from January through April, and concludes with Jude in May.


On Wednesday mornings from 9:00-10:30 a.m., men and women participate in separate small groups, with lectures in the church Sanctuary. Childcare is available.


On Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m., men and women gather in a single small group, closing with a recording/video of the Wednesday morning pastor-led lecture.

PRAYER GROUP

pray-ers for peace

1st & 3rd WEDNESDAYS AT 1:00pm

FORMAT: In person

LOCATION: Mount Calvary Lutheran Church at 9321 Litzsinger Road, 63144. Conference room.


You're invited to join in a prayer group led by St. Paul's member and LCMS deaconess Gayle Truesdell; although held at Mount Calvary, St. Paul's members are warmly welcomed to attend.


Deaconess Truesdell shares, "As Christians, we struggle to find our way through these difficult times. What can we do to make things better? I believe that prayer — fervent and faithful — is our greatest tool for peace right now."


Details

The prayer group will start with a short devotion about prayer and then join together to pray for our nation’s elected leaders, appointed leaders, unity, civil discussions, consensus on national purposes, tolerance, equal justice, non-violence or any issues which might arise in the future. 


The prayer group is not a forum for political debate; no one should come intending to argue for any particular viewpoint. We come to kneel before our Lord.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
