St. Paul's offers many opportunities for informal social time together.
- Coffee Hour. After the 10:15 am Sunday service, parishioners gather to socialize in Selleck Hall. Volunteers sign up in advance to provide refreshments. We try to remember to wear our pre-printed name tags.
- Parish Meals. During the year, there are numerous opportunities for members to gather and share a meal after either worship service or on a special evening. There are some great cooks, male and female, at St. Paul's!
- New Member Ministry. While a member of the vestry has titular responsibility for this, we recognize that newcomer ministry belongs to all parishioners. On Sundays, a member of the vestry greets newcomers at coffee hour. Newcomers are invited to complete a Welcome Card so that one of our clergy can tell them more about St. Paul's and to answer their questions. Semi-annually, newcomers are invited to a social gathering with current members. We all endeavor to make new members feel welcome and invite them into the life and activities of the parish. A new member orientation is offered by the clergy several times a year in the Waterman Library.
