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 are a community of lifelong learners who seek spiritual vitality and authentic relationship in worship, education and fellowship. We strive to be one family in Christ, and we welcome everyone, including families of all configurations, to participate in the very full life we share as God's people. We try to embody the values of the Gospel, including hospitality, generosity, and love. We are not perfect, and we also seek to practice reconciliation, truth-telling and forgiveness.
Your presence is a gift to us. We look forward to getting to know you and to sharing our common life. 

Now that you have found us on the web, please come and see us in person. We worship on Sundays at 8 AM and 10:15 AM every week. Please contact our Rector The Rev. Stephanie M. Johnson, with any questions you might have.
