COVID-19 Updates

Worship

At the direction of Bishop Rowe, we are suspending all in-person worship and parish events, until further notice.  We are continuing to broadcast Morning Prayer at 10 am on Sunday on our Facebook page and posting the video on our Vimeo channel later in the day.  We are continuing to host many events on Zoom for all ages – subscribe to our e-newsletter for information and links.

Holy Week

Holy Week is, as the name suggests, the holiest week of the Christian year.  We are offering two ways to celebrate Holy Week and Easter at home this year.

Holy Week at home is activities for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and an at home Easter Vigil for your household.  You can sign up to get a Holy Week at Home packet here.

On the Day before Easter, April 3, we will be dropping off stuffed Easter Eggs so that you can have your own, socially distanced, Easter Egg Hunt.  You can sign up for the drop-off Easter Egg Hunt here.

Puzzle Exchange

We have a puzzle exchange located in the garden area in front of our building.  It works like the little free libraries. Bring the puzzles that you have finished and pick up a new one or two.  We are suggesting that you leave the puzzles in your trunk or garage for a day or two (Johns Hopkins says the virus might live up to 24 hours on cardboard).

During the winter the path to the box is cleared from the north side of the building (closer to Main St.) – so drive around, park on that side & walk past the red doors to the box.

Who We Are

St. Paul’s is known as “the Church the children built”.  The church started as an ecumenical Sunday School after World War II.  The congregation grew from the Sunday School and became an Episcopal Church in the late 1940’s.  The church building was dedicated in September 1949.

Today St. Paul’s is known for children, community involvement, food and fun.  Our mission statement sums us up.  St. Paul’s welcomes all to celebrate God’s love through faith and action.  Come and join the celebration.

St. Paul’s is part of the Episcopal Church.  The Episcopal Church strives to live out the message of Jesus Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome.  Our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry describes it as “following Jesus on the Way of Love.”  We strive to live out Jesus’ commandment that we love one another as he loves us.

We are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful discussion about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Jesus Christ.  Our worship follows the ancient patterns of Christian worship.  We draw on the 2000 years of Christian worship to anchor our prayers & sacraments.

At the same time we value the movement of the Spirit of God in our time.  We believe that God is moving us always towards a world where justice is the touchstone and every individual is valued for who God created them to be.

We work hard to translate the teachings of Jesus into our world today.  We don’t always agree, but we always approach one another from a place of respect & love.  We are called by our baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to strive for justice and peace among all people and to respect the dignity of every human being.
