Welcome to St. Paul's!

We are delighted that you have chosen to seek us out. As a congregation which seeks to deepen our relationship with God, our neighbor and the world around us, we welcome all seekers.

Our Sunday worship is at the heart of our time together as we gather to celebrate all God’s blessings and find solace in our lives. While deeply committed to traditional Episcopal foundation of our worship, we also recognize that people enter into worship with different experiences and expectations.

A recent favorite moment in worship was, when to the delight of the congregation, a young child took her coloring book and sat in the middle of the aisle to color. From the soaring music, thoughtful sermons and hearing of the Good News, our worship also reflects the solemnity of being present to God. We hope that when you enter into the church you (and your family and friends) experience both that sense of being comfortable like our young members and also a deep reverence.

If you are new to Episcopal worship, our ushers and other parishioners would be glad to help you follow along with the service, though be assured that all the information you need appears in our Sunday worship bulletin.

Our Sunday School program offers meaningful, age appropriate classes to encourage our children to experience God. Children begin the Sunday school (also called faith formation classes) at 10:AM and join their families at the exchange of peace, near the middle of the service. Adult education programs are offered on Sunday mornings and during the weekly Bible Study on Tuesdays.

I’m always interested in getting to know people who are on a faith journey. I invite you, as a fellow seeker, to meet me for coffee, have a quick chat after Sunday services or drop by during the week for conversation.

May God’s peace be with you,
The Reverend Stephanie M. Johnson, Rector
