 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.

 

 

WELCOME TO St. PAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH!

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

ADULT & YOUTH Christian Formation - ON SUMMER BREAK

Thank you erveryone for a wonderful year!  We learned a lot and explored a great deal of what it means to be Christians and what it means to be Episcopalians.

We grew from sharing with one another.

Children's Chapel News - ON SUMMER BREAK

This Sunday, May 24, 2015, will be the last Children's Chapel session before we head into a summer break.  I really cannot thank enough all of the teachers who so lovingly, enthusiastically, creatively, and fairthfully taught our young St. Paul's members throughout the year.  As a result of their commitment, I know that the children have grown and flourished in their faith and had a lot of fun doing it!  Have a WONDERFUL SUMMER!!  While we know we'll see everyone over the summer, we can't wait for next season's Children's Chapel to learn, grow, sing, march, and pray some more!  Peace, Deb

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.’"
