St. Paul's Community

in a time of Physical Distancing

While we cannot gather together in person for worship or ministry, we will be creative about finding other ways to maintain our connections with God and one another. On this page, we are collecting links and resources that may be helpful to you.

"Re-Entering Well"

This message (6:40 playing time) will help St. Paul's members and friends hear more about the current state of the church and our early "Re-Entering Well" considerations. If you prefer to read a copy, the transcript is available: click here to down the message as a *pdf.

    Click HERE to go to the Worship at Home page where you can find a fresh worship service each Sunday at 11:00 and view previous services. Our pastors will offer the Scripture reading and a sermon message. We also feature musical selections by Organist Marvin Mills. Each service will have a slightly different format and may include guest speakers, lay readers, hymns for all to sing, and other features. 

  • Prayer Requests

    Click HERE to go to the Prayer Requests page. From here, please use our secure form to submit your request.

    If you usually mail your checks to St. Paul's, you can continue to do so since we process the mail regularly. To donate online, click here to go to the Giving page. Online giving allows you to make a secure financial gift as a one-time donation or a recurring offering. From our Giving page, you can choose to donate to the General Fund, the Hunger Ministry fund, the Improvement Fund, the Capital Campaign, or the Easter Special Offering.
