How We Worship

“Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness…” Psalm 96:9

Sunday Worship
9:00 a.m.

At least three Sundays a month, the children go to FishPlay – a program based on Biblical storytelling and creative arts.  They meet in the Undercroft (downstairs) to go to the second floor of the parish house prior to the service.

 

The Episcopal Church is unique in that it represents a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.  Our Sunday service includes Scripture readings, psalms, hymns and Holy Communion.  If you are searching for spiritual values and wholeness in our broken world, why not come worship with us some Sunday at 9:00 a.m.? The Episcopal Church has an “open” Communion—all are welcome at this table.

Opportunities for service

 We welcome young people from 12 years old and up to be trained as acolytes.  Adults rotate as Readers of Scripture, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers and Intercessors.  Speak to the Priest in Charge if you are interested.

 Music for Worship

We sing from the Episcopal Hymnal as well as Alleluia III, which is a collection of Gospel songs,Taize chants and good contemporary music. While St. Paul’s does not have a formal choir, this is a congregation that enjoys singing the old favorites as well as learning new music.

Our choices in music reflect the diversity of the congregation. We believe that no one should leave a worship service without singing at least one hymn or song that touches their heart
