Our annual Cruise ’n Barbecue will be held on Saturday, April 28. The day’s events will begin at 9:00 a.m. with an all new Poker Cruise route that will take participants through some of Rowan County’s most beautiful countryside. The Car Show as well as serving of Port-a-Pit chicken dinners will begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m. at which time trophies will be awarded, followed by drawings for the always awesome raffle prize packages contributed by individuals and organizations. In the meantime, there will be plenty of music, ice cream, baked goods and other activities to be enjoyed throughout the day.
The proceeds from this year’s event will go to St. Paul’s Helping Hands Fund which is available to meet acute financial needs of individuals and families in the congregation and community.

This year we are trying something new for Mother’s Day. Instead of an evening meal, we are having a Luncheon buffet (mega salad/potato bar with grilled chicken) on Saturday, May 12, at 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.
We are excited to have Mary Ann McCubbin share stories with us for our entertainment. We hope that you will join St. Paul’s Lutheran Women as we honor the Mothers of our congregation. Please bring your loved ones and join us for a celebration and wonderful meal!
Don’t forget to bring door prizes! Ticket prices will be made available soon.
Come join our youth as they will be leading our Worship service Sunday, May 13, at 10:30 a.m. We are excited to have our K-12th graders participating!

We are excited to continue our partnership with Community Blood Center of the Carolinas by offering four blood drives in 2018.
Our second Blood Drive in 2018 is on Monday, May 14, from 2:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall with a goal of 35 units.

Appointment may be made by contacting Alice Davis.
The Rite of Confirmation is a time for people to confirm or affirm the promises made to them by God in their Baptism. This is also a time to publicly announce the understanding of our responsibilities as Christians, knowing that we live under the forgiving power of the risen Christ and how we are called to spread the good news of God’s love in Christ by loving and serving others. On Sunday, May 20, during worship our second year confirmands: Henry Barringer, Chloe Lombard, Addy Lura, Caleb Orbison, Sam Pepper, and Lauren Whisnant will affirm their baptism. Please remember these young people in your prayers as they come to this mile marker in their faith journey.
Our youth are sponsoring a Spaghetti Luncheon Fundraiser following worship on Sunday, May 20.
In July, thirteen youth and chaperones will be attending the LCMC Youth Gathering in Des Moines, Iowa. The cost of the trip is approximately $6,000. The proceeds from the Spaghetti Luncheon will go towards the trip.
Please join us for a delicious meal and support our youth! We appreciate all the help the congregation is able to help us with reaching our goals.
