WORSHIP AT ST. PAUL CHURCH
Whether the style of worship is traditional or contemporary or contemplative, we desire to offer our best to God. At St. Paul Church we offer three Sunday morning worship services — two traditional and one contemporary. We conduct our traditional services in our beautiful “citizens’ Gothic” sanctuary at 8:30am and 11:00am The spirited contemporary service, KOINONIA, takes place on the second floor of our Family Life Center at 9:00am. We provide hearing aids in the sanctuary for the hearing impaired in our traditional services. All services are wheelchair accessible. Childcare is available during all Sunday morning services.
Quarterly, we offer a contemplative service on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm in the chapel (second floor across from the sanctuary). This service, led by lay members, has time for music, reflection, and centering.
Sunday Mornings | 8:30am | 11:00am | Sanctuary
Our 11:00am traditional Sunday worship service includes congregational hymns accompanied by pipe organ and choir, readings from the Old and New Testaments, liturgical responses, a sermon, a children’s moment, and (on the first Sunday of each month) Holy Communion. The 8:30am service is similar but slightly abbreviated. Our sanctuary service incorporates hymns, readings, and ceremonies based on centuries of church worship, woven into a rich tapestry of worship and praise. From the congregational reading of church creeds to the singing of hymns from the 16th century to the present, traditional worship at St. Paul is dedicated to glorifying God and sharing the good news of the gospel. You’re welcome to join every Sunday for worship, song, and prayer.
* Due to renovations in the sanctuary the 8:30 am Traditional Service will be held in the Chapel and the 11:00am service will be held in the Gym until August 28, 2019
Sunday Mornings | 9:00am | Family Life Center
We celebrate worship with KOINONIA in the Family Life Center each Sunday morning at 9:00. The rich heritage and quality of worship leadership that has marked the history of St. Paul is enlivened with a new language of music, prayer, drama, and visual arts. Our pastors lead us in Scripture and its relevance for our lives, preaching the same sermon heard at our traditional services but in a more relaxed setting.
Our experienced Worship Team comprises singers, instrumentalists, and audio and visual technicians, all dedicated to making worship vibrant and life-changing. Come celebrate with us! (And yes, you can bring your coffee and donuts into the service from the Common Cup.)
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:In returning and rest you shall be saved;In quietness and in trust shall be your strength.– ISAIAH 30:15
