St. Paul offers a single service, the Celebration of Holy Communion, at 9:30 a.m. Coffee Fellowship before and after worship. Sunday School and Adult Education begin at 10:45.
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.
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.
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.
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.
