Worship

We invite you to our Sunday celebration of faith, hope, and love:

Hear the good news of God's love in Jesus,

pray for the needs of the world,

and be encouraged for faithful living during the week.

We all gather by the invitiation of Jesus.

Please join us for Sunday Worship of Word and Sacrament:

10:15am (8:30am and 9:30am June 13 through Labor Day) in person, and live-streamed (10:15am/9:30am).

All baptized and communing Christians are welcome to Communion.

Lutheran worship

is traditional and contemporary.

 

Our church welcomes everyone to worship God with us for spiritual encouragement and to experience authentic faith community with other followers of Jesus.

Our Sunday services combine traditional forms and contemporary content. We emphasize biblical teaching and practice freedom in the Spirit.

There’s no membership requirements and all may participate as comfortable. A children’s time is offered each week during the worship service.

 

St. Paul’s will have two Sunday Services at 8:30am and 9:30am this summer.

 

Please join us in-person or online:

8:30am will be an abbreviated and spoken service.

  • Masks must be worn properly at all times by everyone.

  • There will be no music or singing. Congregational speaking will be limited and should be kept low.

  • Physical distancing is requested at all times. Communion is taken in the pews.

 

9:30am will be a regular service.

  • Masks are optional.

  • The congregation is able to sing and speak group prayers/responses. Communion is taken at the altar railing (1st and 3rd Sunday) or chancel steps (2nd, 4th and 5th).

  • Unvaccinated individuals put themselves and each other at risk of illness by attending this service without precautions.

 

A children’s message and Communion will be shared at both services.

 

Online Worship will be streamed live at 9:30am on our YouTube channel. Recordings are also available on demand 24/7.

  • Bulletins and a link will be shared by email with members and by request with others each week.

Worship the Lord with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.
 (Psalm 100:2)

Offerings are a worshipful expression of gratitude.

 

The regular gifts of tithes (a tenth of what God provides) and other special gifts of money, goods, or time make the ministries of St. Paul's, partner organizations, and local, national or global ministry activities possible.

In addition to offerings to God in worship, we provide additional options for giving:

  • by mail to St. Paul's, P.O. Box 266, Hillsboro, IL 62049

  • through transfer at your bank, or

  • online with our Tithe.ly donation service.

Thank you for your faithful and generous support of Christ's work!
