At the heart of this week we proclaim Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. The ancient title for this week—the triumph of the cross—reminds us that the church gathers not to mourn what once had been but to celebrate Christ’s life-giving passion and to find hope and life for all in the cross.

How can we keep from singing its most wonderful sound?  ALLELUIA!!  Easter Sunday April 21, 10am.  But first we must journey with our Lord through the darkness… Holy Thursday April 18, 7pm.  Good Friday April 19 Noon.  Holy Saturday April 20, 5pm. On Holy Saturday, we remember our baptism into the death and resurrection of Christ and hear the first of our songs of alleluia

Easter

St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wilson has supported an Orphanage in Haiti for over 7 years. They have a mission team that visits the orphanage every year to assess the needs of the children and provide them with spiritual support. St. Paul’s has received a proposal to help build a hurricane safe, multipurpose orphanage and worship center at a cost of $72000. The previous center was destroyed by Hurricane Mathew in 2017. Using your 2019 Lenten offering envelopes from March 10 -April 14, will be our gift to the needs of the orphanage. 

Blanket Project

This group provides support to families who have lost children to death. The group will continue to meet monthly on the second Tuesday from 7-9pm in the Conference Room.  Next date is May 7th..

Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month  (next date is May 16th)  from 6-8 at the church.  Contact Lisa (lam@surfam.com) for more details. Donated complete blankets are also welcome. 

These continue to be collected and deposited in the box located in the coat room  Monies received are used to help the local needs of the hungry.
