Welcome to St. Paul's

We are a community of all ages and we come from many different faith backgrounds. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides a life-giving word of hope, and we strive to welcome all to worship and to membership in our church. The bread and wine of communion is offered to all baptized people at our services, and baptism is always open to those who desire it.

We're starting a NEW CHOIR for older kids and adults who cannot commit to the "regular" choir and who might like a bit different repertoire.  It is also an opportunity for kids (4th grade and up) to sing with their parents (or other adults - parental participation is not required).

 We have lots of good singers, and we want to offer them the opportunity to learn and sing together. Regular rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 8 to 8:45 pm. Rehearsals will be held weekly beginning April 9. If you're curious or want more information, please  or contact
me or David Johnson.
Have you RSVP-ed?: Join us on Saturday April 25 for
St. Paul's Auction Gala "Casablanca" to be held at the Riverside Yacht Club

Invitations have been mailed. To request one, email here.
Donation Form available here

As of this year, we will no longer hold our annual "Fair for All."  After 73 years, it is time to retire this wondeful tradition. We hope to hold a different event, to include our famous Book Fair, at another time of year. Click here to listen to the Rector's sermon which included the announcement.
