The congregation of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church welcomes visitors to every worship service.

When you worship with us, we ask that you complete the visitor’s card in the pew and place it in the offering plate. After each 10:00 a.m. Sunday service, we offer coffee and fellowship in the Parish Hall. We hope that you will join us there.

Saturday Evenings

5:00 p.m. Informal Eucharist
Saturday evenings give rise to a relaxed form of worship.

Sunday Mornings

8:00 a.m. “Said” Service 
During this service, the worship is quiet and contemplative. Some prefer this service because it affords opportunities for quiet meditation and reflection.

10:00 a.m.  “Sung” Service. 
The parish’s principal worship service is majestic and dignified. The liturgy may be Rite II Eucharist (from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer), or sometimes Morning Prayer. The congregation and choir sing hymns, and the choir provides an anthem. Worshipers find this service to be an uplifting experience.

Church School
Children are always welcome at all worship services at St. Paul’s. A roomy, carpeted Family Pew is conveniently furnished with easy chairs, snuggly stuffed animals, quiet toys, books, and puzzles.  Please check Godly Play under the the Ministry tab.


Noon: Informal Daily Office & Healing Eucharist–a brief, contemplative mid-week option, including Holy Unction (the laying on of hands with holy oil).

We hope the following “FAQ” will be helpful to your prayerful worship at St. Paul’s.

How can I participate in the service?
On Sundays, or at special services, you may pick up a Parish Bulletin, which outlines the congregation’s part of the liturgy and the hymn numbers from the hymnal. Scripture readings for the day are inserted.

We customarily stand when we sing; sit to hear lessons, sermons, or announcements; and stand or kneel when we pray.

Members of the congregation will be glad to help you find your materials, and you may stand, sit and kneel with the congregation as you feel comfortable.

May I take Communion?
People who have been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and/or who receive Communion in their own church are welcome to take Communion at St. Paul’s. Our custom is to come to the altar rail, kneel, and receive the Communion Bread in our open hands.

After consuming the Bread, we receive the Cup, guiding it to our lips for a small taste of Wine. Alternatively, people who do not wish to sip from the Cup may receive “by intinction,” in which the Bread is dipped in the Wine before being eaten.

Do children receive Communion at St. Paul’s?
Children receive Communion at St. Paul’s at about age 6 or 7, but younger visitors who take Communion in their home church are welcome to receive it here.

Children who do not receive Communion are encouraged to accompany their parents to the altar rail, put their hands together, and receive a prayer of blessing.

How may I receive Holy Communion if I am not able to come to the altar rail?
For those who cannot come to the altar, notify the usher and the priest will deliver the Sacraments to you. (If there is no usher, simply raise your hand and catch the Celebrant’s eye as the last people leave the altar rail.)
