Week of January 29

St. Paul Lutheran Church and Preschool – Amherst, Ohio (Rev. Paul Werner, Preschool Director)

Thanks to God for peace and unity within the congregation throughout the pandemic and afterward.
Thanks to God for dedicated and caring Preschool teachers.
Thanks to God for the Preschool children and families He has brought to us, many of whom do not know Jesus as their Savior, and the opportunity to share Christ's love and forgiveness with them.
Thanks for renewed vision following the pandemic, and the congregation's enthusiastic support.
Pray for God to bless new teams of His people as they begin new ministry efforts aligned with the renewed vision:
To personally engage those who worship by live stream so that they are enfolded into the Church, brought to faith/Baptism, grow as disciples, and for the upgrades in technology to do this.
Increase guest hospitality and follow up to enfold guests into the community of the Church and know Christ.
To investigate and then begin before and after school care ministry which will add on to the Preschool ministry
To begin groups to reach out to Preschool families through education and fellowship
To compassionately care for people in need in the community God has called us to serve.
