Christ the King Lutheran Chape, Sauble Beach
As one walks along the paths and trails in the Sauble area, breath taking beauty greets the eyes; fresh aromas the nose; and the songs of birds the ears. The words of that well known and loved hymn "For the Beauty of the Earth" tell it so well. There is not taste like that of the newly sprouted leeks growing in the woods. Feeling the warm breezes drifting over Lake Huron completes the five senses we experience.In the midst of this beauty one finds Christ the King Lutheran Chapel located next to Sauble Falls at Sauble Beach.
Ms. Karen Stepko has appointed the 2011 Summer Worker at the chapel. She is a Masters of Divinity student at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon where she has completed her second year of studies. Upon completion of her time at Sauble, Karen will begin her internship at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Prince Rupert, B.C. While at Sauble she will conduct worship services, participate in all programmes, and be a leader in the renowed children's activity - Fun Club (Vacation Bible School). Visitation of friends of the chapel will be another avenue of her service.

St. Paul's, Bridgeport celebrated its 150 Anniversary May 15. Here are some memories written by Judy Bowyer and Pauline Chapeskie.
A church is more than the bricks that make up its building. A church is its members and all the people who are connected with it. When we think about the history of St. Paul's we remember more than dates and names. We remember more than the buildings we worshipped in and the pastors who served and guided us. We remember very happy times and we remember times of great sadness. We remember baptisms, confirmations, weddings, and funerals. We also remember special celebrations, Easter services, Christmas services and simple times when we sat quietly in the church before service just feeling a sense of belonging and a sense of peace.
Many people remember Luther League, church picnics, singing in the choir, being and usher and serving on church council, teaching Sunday School, being in Sunday School, baseball games, trips, and hay rides.
After you have been confirmed, you are a fully paricipating church member, which means you have to stay at the annual meeting and vote on decisions. The annual meeting in the 1970's is incredibly boring unless someone gets excited and worked up and says something that sounds angry. The only good part is the sandwiches and squares. The annual meeting is like a funeral without anyone having to die. At least that's the way it was in the 1970's. Pastor Gloria tries to convince us that it's not so any more.
