St. Paul’s is a community of faith, whose members serve Jesus Christ through worship, prayer, study, and service in the tradition of the Episcopal Church in the Anglican Communion. They warmly welcome all persons to join with us in Christian worship and fellowship. St. Paul’s is vibrant church community and they look forward to meeting you personally. They work hard to make certain their doors are open wide, and that those who are new to us feel a warm welcome. You are invited to partake in the total life of this community, particularly in the worship of God and in service to others. They believe this to be an expression of the love and openness modeled by Christ. Their hope also is that you will receive a sense of the sacred in this place and will want to explore deeper. They invite you to join us for one of our services and talk with members in person. All baptized Christians – regardless of denomination – are welcome to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.
Fine music has always been one of the hallmarks of St. Paul’s, essential to this beautiful Anglican worship and a point of pride for thisparish. St. Paul’s is blessed by the outpouring of talent and time by many parishioners of all ages in the ministry of music. Their participation reminds us that among the greatest gifts each has to share are those precious talents God has given to each of us. Everyone is richer when each one offers their talents to God in worship.
