We gather today as Gods beloved children to worship our Heavenly Father.

We praise his holy name, we listen eagerly for his words of comfort, hope, and challenge to us, and we offer ourselves to him in dedicated service. May you be blessed as you worship here today.

St. Paul Lutheran Church is a congregation of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (E.L.C.A.). It is referred to as Borchers since Rev. Henry Borchers, who served our congregation from 1857-1881, advised and influenced a small group of pioneer settlers that wanted to establish a congregation in the area. This year we celebrate 161 years of life and ministry in this beautiful country setting in Southern Indiana. We look forward to many more years of growth and change as we seek continually to be faithful to Gods call to mission.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is


offered at the 8:00 a.m. services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and at the 10:15 a.m. service on the 1st and the 3rd Sundays of the month. Christians who believe in the true presence of Christ in the bread and wine for our forgiveness and salvation are invited to receive Holy Communion.

Going Deeper

The purpose of this page is to provide a tool or instrument for your spiritual growth. This page contains a brief synopsis of the readings as well as some questions for your reflection to help you go deeper with the Word. On the back is a day by day listing of scripture readings with possible prayer request. Individuals are listed on their day of birthso that you might pray for them on their birthday. Also on the back is the prayer list for the congregation. Keep on Growing Spiritually!! Readings for the Day: I Kings 5:1-5; 8:1-3: Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem and put the Ark of the Covenant there. This fulfilled what the Lord said to David that his descendant would build the temple rather than David. When the Ark of the Covenant is put into the temple, a cloud fills the house indicating that the glory of the Lord dwells there. John 2:19-21: These verses are part of the larger story of Jesus attacking the commercialization of religion by driving out merchants from the temple. When challenged, Jesus responds in a strange way by predicting his death and resurrection. He compares himself to the temple. From Sunday & Seasons, copyright 2013 Augsburg Fortress

NOTES:

Questions To Ponder: 1How does using this narrative lectionary fit into the theme of the Reformation? 2What is the significance of the building of the temple? 3What is the significance of the dark cloud? 4What is the ark of the covenant? Why is it important and put in the temple? 5How do you understand Solomons saying that he has built an exalted house, a place for God to dwell in forever?

MEMORY VERSE: 1 Kings 8:13 13 I have built you an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever."
