Church News and Yearly Calendar
Pastor Mark will be representing St. Paul's Wurtemburg at this community event on April 14th. Come see what it's all about!
This beautiful cross was made by our Sunday School for Palm Sunday 2013. It made out of toilet roll and paper towel tubes. The flowers are made with coffee filters. We are so blessed by this wonderful Sunday School project!
Sunday School: Kindergarden to grade six, the children meet during the Sunday morning service time of 10:00. For more information, call the office at 845-876-7697
Confirmation Class: This year's classes continue every other Sunday. Each student takes a turn in opening class with a prayer. Their family makes supper for the class that week, then class with Pastor Mark is held after that. It's a good way for the families to spend time with Pastor and get to know one another better.
Ziegenfuss University: The new semester is well under way and going strong! Join us for this weekly, "college-level" class with Pastor Mark. This year's format is different from years past. Each week, a question is posed by a member of the class, and an open discussion follows. We've had some very thought- provoking subjects this year and some wonderful discussions between students and Pastor Mark. Join us every Monday night at 7:00.
Pastor Mark would like to meet with each member of the church this year, for a one-hour discussion on any questions you might have and how the Bible applies to every day life. Please call the office to schedule your meeting with Pastor at the church's parsonage, and sit with him over a nice cup of tea!
Monthly Council Meetings: 3rd Tuesday of each month (NO meeting in July.)
AA meets every Monday and Thursday nights, from 8:00-9:00.
The old parsonage, built in 1870, is getting a new porch and the east side of the Fellowship Hall is being repaired, as the rest of the room was over the last few years.
Everything looks wonderful!
The first week of August, 2012, was a very busy one for St. Paul's.
The congregation of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Wurtemburg celebrates Pastor Mark's 20th anniversary in the ministry on June 24, 2012.
Frequently, we get phone calls from people with geneological questions. We recommend getting information from the Starr Library's Local History Room in Rhinebeck. It is open every Tuesday and Thursday, from 10:00-3:00 and Saturdays by appointment.
St. Paul's History: Pastor Mark was at the Quitman house Saturday, September 10, 2011. He was the guest speaker there, and spoke about his newly released book on the 250 year history of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Wurtemburg.
Disaster Relief Effort at St. Paul's Wurtemburg:
Thanks to all who contributed to the disaster relief collection that took place, to help the flood victims of hurricane Irene in our area. Pictured here are some of the Red Cross workers, who were so grateful to receive our donations!
On Memorial Day week end, the people of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Wurtemburg are honored to remember those who gave up their lives while serving our country. In the cemeteries that surround our church, we have graves of soldiers from every war/conflict, going back to the Revolution. We are grateful to each and every one. May God bless them, their families and friends, always.

On May 24, 2010, our very own Pastor Mike Anderson graduated from Yale Divinity School! What a wonderful achievement! Mike is a Navy Chaplain, who is stationed in Japan at this time. After he completes two years there, he has volunteered to go to Afghanastan. We continue to pray for Mike and ask God to continue blessing this very special man with strong mind, body and spirit! God bless you, Pastor Mike!
