St. Paul Lutheran Church is a congregation 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 Gods call to mission.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is

offered at the 8:00 a.m. services on the 2nd


and 4th Sundays and at the 10:15 a.m. service on the 1st and the 3rd 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
receive Holy Communion.

Sunday School classes are held each Sunday for all ages at 9:10 a.m. Visitors are
welcome to attend.
HEARING ASSISTANCE: We have

head phones available for those in need of


assistance with hearing. They are located on
the table at the entrance of the sanctuary.
LARGE PRINT BULLETINSThere

are a handful of large print bulletins available. They are located on the table at the entrance of the sanctuary.

1Who is Barnabas?
2Why were others set apart for the mission of God?
3Why did the people think Barnabas and Paul were gods?
4What did Paul emphasize about God to this group of
people?
5How does this text speak to you today?

Friends, why are you doing this? We are mortals just like you, and we bring you good news, that you
should turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea
and all that is in them.
