Weekly Services

St. Paul offers a single service, the Celebration of Holy Communion, at 9:15 a.m. for the duration of the summer. On September 13 we will move to one service at 9:30 a.m.

St. Paul offers Celebration of Holy Communion every Sunday. St. Paul's organist, Beverly Pettit, accompanies worship on the large 38-rank organ, a smaller 4-rank organ, and/or the grand piano. In addition, the St. Paul Chancel Choir, under the direction of Music Director Seth Hartwell, helps lead worship each week during the school year.

 

Communion

All who believe are welcome to the Lord’s table at St. Paul. If you require gluten free bread or grape juice rather than wine, simply indicate this to the server during distribution. If health concerns give you reason to avoid the wine/grape juice or bread, remember that the Christian Church has always taught that Christ is fully present in either element alone; therefore you may receive the sacrament and its benefits in either the bread or the wine/grape juice. Those not communing are welcome to come forward for a blessing.

Summer Schedule

During the summer St. Paul scales down to a single Sunday service at 9:15 a.m., also accompanied by organ and/or grand piano. The Chancel Choir sings during two of the three summer months and takes a vacation during August. During that time hymns are drawn from a list of favorites submitted by members of the congregation. Holy Communion is offered each week during the summer. On September 13, we will begin our new schedule of worship at 9:30 a.m.

Seasonal Services

St. Paul offers additional services, on a seasonal basis, throughout the year. Advent is marked with mid-week services, as is Lent. Christmas Eve is celebrated in two services, one at 5 p.m. and the other at 9 p.m.

You may choose from two services (mid-day or evening) on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. St. Paul celebrates Easter Vigil with a Saturday evening service, and offers a 10:00 a.m. Easter Sunday services. Contact us closer to those dates for precise service times.

Connections

St. Paul is all about connections: connections with each other, helping connections, and those with the world around us.

Just to name a few, here's an idea of what we do:

  • Wellness Ministry
  • Visitation Team
  • Prayer Chain
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry
  • Stephen Ministry
  • Outreach Ministry Team
  • Adopted Families Project
  • Creation Stewardship
  • Connections Team
  • Fellowship Circle Dinner Groups
  • Lilith Women's Group
  • Women's Bible Study

Music

If you love music, you'll love St. Paul. We have incredibly rich musical traditions. We frequently host outside musicians, including the Albuquerque Chamber Soloists, the American Guild of Organists, and Dr. Robert Ray (composer of the Gospel Mass), in addition to our own  Sunday worship.

The St. Paul Chancel and Youth Choir are capably led by Seth Hartwell and organist Beverly Pettit often plays the large (38-rank) pipe organ.

You are invited to join us in making a "joyful noise unto the Lord" — whether by singing in the choir, as a guest soloist, or simply raising your voice in a hymn — any, and every, Sunday!

Learning

Sunday schools of all ages meet between services at 9:15 a.m. Adults head to the Library while the youth meet in the Chapel.

Youth gatherings offer a kind and safe environment to learn and grow through Christ. This gives everyone a way to connect with others their age while taking part in the ministry of St. Paul, performing community service, and last — but most certainly not least — having a great time!

Learning isn't restricted only to classes and formal settings. Other opportunities for continuing your education include volunteering in one of the ministries, attending the Fall Festival, or going on an outing with the youth.
