The St Paul's food pantry has future pantries scheduled for August 14th, August 28th, and September 11th. The recent drive-thru food pantry served 94 families in need (July 31st).
Here is a list of some of the most common things they give out: dried rice, dried beans, pasta, spaghetti sauce, refried beans, cereal, peanut butter, canned fruit, fruit juice, mac and cheese, baked beans, chicken and tuna helper, and canned chicken and tuna. We can certainly use other foods too. You can just get some of the non-perishable food items that your family eats, and people will appreciate them too. Monetary donations are also certainly acceptable.
St Paul's church office (514 S. Clay St.) is open for donations each weekday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Could you bring in some food for us to share with those in need? We have drive-thru food pantries scheduled for August 14th, August 28th, and September 11th. God bless you!
Weekly worship services
We continue to offer weekly worship services both online and in person. As you will see on the August calendar, we are moving our Tuesday services back to Mondays, with services at 4:30 pm (face coverings required, for high-risk individuals in particular) and 6:00 pm (face coverings optional). Please note face coverings are required at all worship services as of August 1st due to the Wisconsin face covering mandate.
You can find weekly updates and information, as well as recordings of current and links to previous worship services and Bible classes, on our church website. (www.beautifulsavior.com ).
Thank you, Vicar Pflughoeft!
Yes, another Vicar is nearing the end of his year of ministry experience and training with us. Vicar and Mrs. Pflughoeft and their family will be leaving Beautiful Savior after August 10 so Vicar can complete his final year at our Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. Although we aren’t able to have our usual church picnic send-off this year, you can share your appreciation with the Pflughoeft’s by dropping off a card, a note or a monetary gift in the wooden box which will be on the back counter of church from July 25 through August 10, or by sending it directly to Vicar at the church address (2160 Packerland Drive, Green Bay, WI 54304). Thank you!
Welcome, Vicar Wong!
And as one Vicar leaves us, the Lord brings us another! Nathan Wong will be installed as our fourth Vicar on August 16 in our 9:15 am worship service. Again, since we won’t be able to have any welcome reception for Vicar and Mrs. Wong, you can welcome them through a card, note or gift which can be placed in the wooden box which will be on the back counter of church from August 15 - 31, or by sending it directly to the Wong’s at the church address (2160 Packerland Drive, Green Bay, WI 54304).
Our thanks to the many people who have continued to support our congregation during these challenging weeks and months. Special thanks to…
God is always there for you
There’s no denying that these weeks and months have taken – and continue to take – their toll on all of us. Phrases like the “new normal” and “CoVid fatigue” can’t fully describe the impact upon our members’ and families’ lives, finances, and mental and emotional well-being. But one thing which not even a pandemic can change is the love and promises of our caring, almighty Lord: “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged!” (Deuteronomy 31: 8)
Our thanks to the volunteers who picked up and delivered these meals, to Vicar Pflughoeft for coordinating this project, and to our members Jonathan and Missy Martens for putting these meal kits together from their restaurant kitchen at Copper State Brewing Company!
