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.
