Worship. Serve. Grow.

Join us on Sunday!

Welcome to St. Paul’s: a community where we worship, serve, and grow together.

When you visit for a Sunday service, you will find ushers and greeters in the lobby (narthex). Take a moment to say hi; we love to meet new people! You are also invited to fill out a contact card from the holder on the back of the pew. You may drop the card in the offering plate or give it to an usher, and we would be glad to be in touch with you.

Sunday Morning at 7:30 a.m. Celebration of the Holy Eucharist, Rite I. This service does not have music and uses the traditional language found in the Rite I service. As a result the service is a little bit shorter, quieter, and thus a more contemplative experience.

Sunday Morning at 9 a.m. This worship service has taken on a family flavor. The St. Paul’s Choir leads music in the Anglican tradition accompanied by organ. Handbell groups and other church ensembles offer music at various times during the year and for special services. Children from preschool through 5th grade are welcome to process from the service for Children’s Chapel at the beginning of the service, returning in time for Communion. Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers up to 3 years-old in the Kids’ Club.

Sunday Morning at 11:15 a.m. (Summers at 10:45 a.m.) The “late” service has a more traditional flavor. Music is led by the Voices of St. Paul’s and organ. In the summer months, this service is held at 10:45 a.m. The summer schedule varies from year to year, though it usually begins on Memorial Day weekend and ends on Labor Day weekend.

Coffee Hour. St. Paul’s Coffee Hours usually take place from 10-11 a.m. in the Parish Hall. During the summer months, we shift to a playful focus with Coffee & Chaos (1st and 3rd Sunday of the month), based in the lobby of the Parish Hall overlooking the playground. All are welcome to meet and share conversation!

Adult, Youth, and Children’s Formation. We have various adult, youth, and children’s formation offerings between 10-11 a.m. Take a look at our St. Paul’s Ministries pages for the most up-to-date information about upcoming events.

Prayers of Healing. During the 9 and 10:45/11:15 a.m. services, a priest is available for healing prayers. You can find them in the right-side, rear corner of the church sanctuary while communion is being served. All are welcome.

Homilies (Sermons). Homilies are recorded and you may replay them by clicking on the links here.  You may also subscribe to homilies via podcast.

Altar Flowers. The arrangements you see at our altar each week are funded by donations to the Altar Guild Memorial Flower Fund. You can reserve a day to celebrate or remember a loved one with a donation. We need 4-weeks advance notice to acknowledge your gift in our Sunday bulletin by publishing your name and the name of the loved one or celebration you indicate. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, we can do that as well.
