Welcome to the website of St Paul Ev. Lutheran Church-Blue Point!

During the Pandemic, news will appear here!

The Latest letter for the people of St Paul June 2, 2020

Church and Sunday school/bible classes will not meet the following days, nor throughout the week
Sunday April 19th and 26th

Wednesday Bible Class will be on the internet beginning on Wednesday, April 22nd at 10 AM. If you would like to attend please give the pastor a call so that he can include you and give credentials to join. All are welcome! We are studying 1 Samuel. This week we will continue the study on 1 Samuel 16-17.

The elders will be meeting to discuss when services will begin again when Governor Pritzker announces plans for gatherings, eg size etc. We will be discussing providing another day or two of communion opportunities, with gatherings of less than 10, maybe next weekend. Pastor will post further details here and on the Church Facebook page.

We are planning to celebrate Easter on the first Sunday we are able to gather. Watch the website or the church facebook page for further information.

Pastor will still be posting sermons every day on the website and facebook page. We thank Faith Kemme for providing us with hymns on the facebook and Youtube pages. Youtube is a new feature for our congregation and will be further developed.

LCMS website on the Pandemic
This link will take you to a host of resources to use during this time when we are unable to join our brothers and sisters in Christ for worship and bible study.

If you are looking for a worship service to listen to, try this link
This will provide you will streamed services from a variety of places, along with weekday services, LHM sermons, and other resources.

Our Daily Sermon Series during this time will focus on…

Pestilence and the lessons of the Church year
The daily services will take up the topic of Pestilence and how the church understands them and responds to them. Pastor Speers intends to record a sermon and short bulletin each day, as we remain apart. As of right now we will begin with a simple sermon this topic and then look a bit more deeply at the texts that speak to this topic, learning from the biblical record how we might live through such times. The first sermon (audio) link and bulletin (print) link is directly below. The reason we are not streaming video is file size.

About St Paul Blue Point
It is taught among us
that we cannot obtain forgiveness of sin and righteousness before God by our own merits, works or satisfactions, but that we receive forgiveness of sin and become righteous before God by grace, for Christ’s sake through faith, when we believe that Christ suffered for us and that for his sake our sin is forgiven and righteousness and eternal life are given to us (Augsburg Confession IV 30:1ff)...This is what we believe, teach and confess at St Paul Lutheran Church, Blue Point.

For over 140 years, the members of St Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church have been blessed, in that God reached out to us to enable us to enter into His presence. He washed away our sins, even as He does every day, through the blood of Jesus Christ. The blood of Christ enables us to “enter into His gates with thanksgiving” (Psalm 100:4). We have come to receive the precious gifts that the Lord so freely bestows on His Bride, the Church. He has faithfully led and cared for His flock in this place and for that we give thanks each day.

We would like to invite you to join us, to “enter into His gates with thanksgiving” (Psalm 100:4). The Lord has blessed us with many resources. A beautiful sanctuary…an expansive parish hall and educational facilities…ALIS, our Lutheran School…and the family of God, which gathers here each week to receive the blessings that the Lord so richly showers upon us. If you do not have a church home, come and visit us!
