 Our Christian Mission


The mission of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

is to sustain a community: 


shaped by worship, 


connected through faith, 

and called to share God’s love.




We open our doors to a world longing to be close to God. We are a Christ-centered community of faith and prayer in the historic Episcopal and Anglican traditions, devoted to deeper intimacy with God in Christ through the Holy Spirit. With rich liturgical and sacramental worship throughout the week, active outreach programs, and a variety of educational opportunities, St. Paul's is a place where the inner life and the outer life feed one another as we become what we are created by God to be - in His image.  "The Glory of God is man fully alive." St. Irenaeus


In an effort to nurture even stronger community bonds, the vestry and I have selected 4 dates throughout this year to combine our services and enjoy fellowship around a meal.


We'll gather at 9:00 a.m. and not have Christian Formation on these days.


Save the following dates:
March 6 (9:00am) followed by brunch
June 5 (9:00am) E-Males Picnic

August 28 (9:00am) followed by brunch

October 2 (10:00am - Confirmation) followed by reception with Bishop Peter Lee
Nov. 13 (9:00am) Parish Meeting followed by brunch


Details about food arrangements will be coming. All are welcome! Let's celebrate our faithful relationships in the Spirit...thanks be to God!

Morning Prayer with Holy Communion

As is our tradition at St. Paul's, in addition to Morning Prayer (Mon-Thur), we also have Holy Communion on major Feast Days.


The next Feast Day is:

Sept 29 - Feast of St. Michael and All Angels


Come start your day reflecting on the events in our Lord's life

and those of the saints of the church.


Morning Prayer/Holy Communion begins at 8:00a.m.

followed by a 25 minute period of Centering Prayer.


Come see the latest play -- and our own Steve Clyburn!!


Dear St. Paul's,

I am excited to share with you that for our annual Bishop Visitation, Bishop Peter Lee (Assisting Bishop of our Diocese) will be coming October 2 with Canon Rhonda Lee to celebrate with us and lead us through the sacrament of confirmation with our 5 confirmands (Isabelle Brown, Juliet Plue, Lydia Dunn, Ella Rushing, and Madeline Rushing).

As per the Bishop's request, the day will be a bit different than in past visitations. Rather than a full luncheon, we will host a lovely reception for the confirmands, as we celebrate their status as confirmed Episcopalians. The day will be combined into 1 service according to the following schedule:


9:30-10:00: Bishop's time with the confirmands
10:00-11:15: Eucharist & Confirmation
11:15-11:45: Confirmands Reception (refreshments/cake/coffee)
11:45-12:15: Congregational Forum with Bishop Lee
12:15: lunch with the vestry


Here is a link to information about Bishop Peter Lee:


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the front office.

Looking forward to being with you all.
In Christ,
Fr. Brad

dates and explanations


Matthew 28:16-20

"Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’"
