St. Paul’s has a coffee hour and fellowship time in the Narthex at 10 a.m. between the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services.  There is self-serve coffee available after the 11 a.m. service. In the summer, coffee hour is at 9 a.m. between the 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. services.

The Open Door Service also has coffee and fellowship before and after its 11 a.m. service (10 a.m. summer) in Hickey Hall.

In the summer (Father’s Day through Labor Day), we follow a slightly different schedule. The early service is held outdoors at 8:30 a.m. and the later services are at 10 a.m. There is childcare for children up to 4 years old at both morning services. There is no weekly summer Sunday school, but children are invited to Fun With Faith one Sunday a month.

 

First-time visitors often tell us that St. Paul’s is a big church.

Lots of entrances and lots of hallways. Fortunately, there are typically lots of friendly folks who can help you get to where you need to go.

We’re glad you’re here, so don’t worry how you’re dressed, or if you are “good enough” to be here. We believe that Jesus Christ makes us ALL valued children of God, and that ALL are worthy to be here!

That’s why you’ll see us practice an open communion, where all are welcome to come forward and experience the grace and undying love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

That’s also why children are welcome at all services. During 9 and 11 a.m. services in the Sanctuary, we typically have children’s sermons with a minister. Childcare is available for children up to 2 years old at the 9, 10 and 11 a.m. hours.  Sunday school is available at 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. for children age 3 through 5th grade.
