Worship is a social experience

As we come together as one in worship this summer, we have a great opportunity to get to know each other better. And there’s no better way than over coffee and refreshments! For early comers, the coffee pot will be on about 8:30, thanks to Dick Anderson, and everyone is invited to stay after the service to enjoy each other’s company!

Summer Service Schedule

Starting June 1 we will have one service at 9:00 am this summer.  Our two-service schedule will resume on Rally Day, September 8.

From Pastor Joel

Dear St. Paul Family,

With mixed emotions of sadness and anticipation I am tendering my resignation as pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church. It has been a difficult process of discernment over the past few months while in a call process with Redeemer Lutheran Church in Bettendorf, Iowa. With encouragement from the Southeastern Iowa Synod office, Redeemer’s call committee contacted me in February, initiating a series of interviews which led to an eventual extension of a call to be their pastor, which was approved by Bishop Burk on July 1.

Because this call was offered during my sabbatical, I will be returning early from the initial scheduled time. I will resume pastoral duties starting Tuesday, July 16. In the following weeks I will work closely with congregational leadership on the next steps as you begin the transition to a new pastor. My goal is to accomplish everything in my power to provide for a smooth transition. My last Sunday will be August 11.

Please feel free to contact President Liz Hansen, Vice President Jason Stolte, or me if you have questions. The council will be in communication with you regarding the duties of the congregation to prepare for a call process.

Annie, our children, and I are deeply grateful for our decade at St. Paul and in the Winterset community. These are years filled with joy and sadness, friendship, and memories we will cherish always. I am grateful for your generosity and support for my ministry here, and for allowing me to serve with you as your pastor. I believe St. Paul is beginning an exciting new phase of ministry! Our prayers and warm wishes are with you as you begin the next chapter of your mission in Christ’s name.

In Christ’s Peace,
Pr. Joel Nau

CRISP School Supply Drive

Even though school is still in session, the CRISP office is gearing up for the school supplies drive for the 2019-2020 school year.

This year we are requesting cash donations versus actual school supplies.  This allows us to buy in bulk, provide more consistency in the backpacks and makes it easier for us due to our pending office relocation.  If you are interested in sponsoring a student, it costs an average of $40 per child to provide them with backpack and supplies for the school year.  However, donations in any amount are GREATLY appreciated.  All donations may be sent to CRISP, 110 W. Washington St. Winterset, IA 50273.

The CRISP office is also looking for additional volunteers to help with the school supply drive and other programs throughout the year.  If you are interested, please contact the CRISP office at 515-462-9400.

RAGBRAI Bake Sale

Cookies and Brownies:  The bake sale will coincide with the pasta bar, noon – 7 pm.  We will be selling individually wrapped cookies & brownies.  The cookies and brownies can be made at home, as long as they do not need to be refrigerated.  Please make sure if you signed up to make cookies or brownies that they are individually wrapped when you bring them into church.

Pies will also be sold as well.  The committee will determine if we will be selling by the slice, depending on the demand.  Remember, anyone who signed up to make a pie(s), make sure they do not have to be refrigerated.

CRISP School Supply Drive

Even though school is still in session, the CRISP office is gearing up for the school supplies drive for the 2019-2020 school year.

This year we are requesting cash donations versus actual school supplies.  This allows us to buy in bulk, provide more consistency in the backpacks and makes it easier for us due to our pending office relocation.  If you are interested in sponsoring a student, it costs an average of $40 per child to provide them with backpack and supplies for the school year.  However, donations in any amount are GREATLY appreciated.  All donations may be sent to CRISP, 110 W. Washington St. Winterset, IA 50273.
