Prayer List

Prayer List

Our Primary Prayer focus for this week is on Christ’s people on earth:
For the Holy Spirit to be at work enriching faith through our Barnabas Ministry. Giving us hearts that are growing in the joy of giving generously to the mission of STL. For children to be raised in the nurture and encouragement of the Gospel. For new individuals to become members of the STL Prayer Chain.

2022 STL Mission Support

2022 STL Mission Support

When you pray about your financial support for the mission of STL, which topics tend to be in the forefront of your thoughts? God’s faithfulness … your trust how God uses your financial resources to fulfill his mission … God’s word and promises… your fears and family needs … Biblical stewardship principles … your personal resources and budget … God’s priorities … or perhaps a complaint or two about the church asking for money! The list goes on and on…

Stop Santa

Stop Santa

Dennis the Menace, the old comic strip, shows Dennis hurrying into the living room holding a large box as his mom turns around, her mouth agape, as Dennis says, “Mom, we’d better call Santa Claus to forget about the train set I asked for.  I just found this one in Dad’s closet on the top shelf.”

Christmas 2021

Christmas 2021

I am writing this letter the day after the tragedy at Oxford High School.  My heart (as I am sure yours does too) goes out to that entire community as our prayers ascend for Jesus come to them with his comfort, peace, and hope.  Surely not only Christmas, but life itself has been altered for many by this sad event.

Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday

The past two years have been particularly difficult for everyone. STL will be using our worship service on Sunday, November 21 to address our grief with the hope we have in Christ. Along with listing the names of loved ones called home, all who worship with us in-person will be invited to place a carnation on the altar during a special time of meditation and prayer in the service.
