ONGOING WATER COLLECTION FOR FLINT
You may continue to bring in jugs and cases of water to be shared with the people of Flint. The drop-off spot here at St. Paul is outside the coat room on the first floor. Whenever donations amount to what will fill our St. Paul van, we will deliver the water to our sister congregation in Fllint: Salem Lutheran Church. Collecting water will continue for the foreseeable future. Salem Lutheran is serving as one of the distribution sites for water and food in Flint. Thank you for your generosity. Let us continue to pray for all concerns and joys, and act where we can.

A Piece to Ponder
“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God. It changes me.” -C. S. Lewis
Last year our youth attended the ELCA National Youth Gathering here in Detroit, July 15 - 19, 2015. For more info see:ELCA-Youth-Gathering
