St. Paul Lutheran Church is a congrega-

tion 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 162 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 God’s call to mission.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is

offered at the 8:00 a.m. services on the 2 nd and 4 th Sundays and at the 10:15 a.m. ser- vice on the 1 st and the 3 rd 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

Walking in Faith – Sowing Christ’s Love

The mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church is derived from our core values - the essence of our purpose for existence and the criteria we should use to guide our congregational decisions and actions.

Our Core Values:

1. Spirituality to worship and to grow and develop spiritually as Christians. 2. Outreach – To spread the message of God’s love and grace by word and by action. 3. Service to Others – To live Christ’s message to Love one another.

You can support the mission of our church by coming to worship, engaging in study, shar- ing the word, bringing a friend to church, taking part in Care Team initiatives, volunteering at church or in the community and loving one another. We invite you to join us in this journey.

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:

Genesis 39:1-23: This is part of the story of Joseph. This section of the Joseph narrative picks up after he was sold into slavery by his brothers and ends up in the house of Potiphar. He has an encounter with Potiphar’s wife and this leads to Joseph being thrown into prison. Even though all this, God was with Joseph.

Matthew 5:1-12: In the beatitudes, Jesus provides a unique description of those who are blessed with God’s favor. His teaching is surprising and shocking to those who seek wealth, fame, and control over others.

From Sunday & Seasons, copyright 2014 Augsburg Fortress’

Questions To Ponder:

1How do you understand the story of Joseph? 2What does this story tell us about God? 3What astounds you about the story of Joseph? 4How does this story connect to the beatitudes from the Gospel of Matthew? 5What does this text say to us today?


Memory Verse: Genesis 39:3 3 His master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD caused all that he did to prosper in his hands
