Worship In-Person

In Person Worship in the Sanctuary

Most Sundays at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM

After worshiping virtually during the height of the covid-19 pandemic, we have returned to the Sanctuary with both 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM in-person worship services on most Sundays. Please scroll down for details! 

Our 10:30 AM service will continue to be livestreamed most Sundays - visit our Worship at Home page for the video.

Nursery care for preschoolers and younger is available at both services. During the 10:30 worship hour, we will have in-person Sunday School programming for children in Grade 5 and younger on most Sundays during the programming year (Sept.-May). For childcare questions, contact Dr. Meg Baker at mbaker@stpaulsk.org or visit our Children's page to learn more.

Communion BRead

We are rebooting the Communion Bread Bakers ministry starting the first Sunday of 2023. Copies of the St. Paul's Communion Bread recipe and a sign-up sheet are available on the bulletin board in the church office for any bakers who want to commit to baking for a Sunday service in the coming year – or who just want the recipe to bake tasty bread for a family meal. You can also download the recipe by clicking HERE.

Looking ahead: Special Ash Wednesday Worship

February 22

Ash Wednesday worship with the imposition of ashes will be offered at 12:00 noon and at 7:00 PM in the Sanctuary. Take time to mark this special day as we enter the season of Lent and begin the walk to the cross that prepares us for Easter.

We warmly welcome everyone to worship on Sundays. Our usual Sunday morning worship times are 9:00 and 10:30 AM. 

During most Sundays, we offer Sunday School programming for children in grade 5 and younger during the 10:30 worship hour. On special Sundays, all ages will be in worship in the Sanctuary together, including children. All those who worship are invited to live into the vows we share at baptism when we promise to embrace young ones as part of the family of God and help them to learn to walk in the ways of faith. Additional information about children's programming and Sunday School is available on our Children's page.

To worship from home or wherever you are, please go to our Worship at Home page for the livestream each Sunday at 10:30 AM and *pdf of the worship bulletin.

Please note: ALL PLANS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. We plan to hold worship in-person in the Sanctuary as scheduled throughout our renovation. Please follow the Weekly News email messages for updates or visit stpaulsk.org regularly.

Please visit the Children's page for nursery and Sunday School registration and more information.

If you would like to visit us during the week, the office is open! Please make an appointment with a member of the staff! Visit our Meet the Staff page, where you will find contact info for our clergy and staff who will be happy to assist you.

Fifth Sunday, One Community

When there are five Sundays in a month, we use the fifth Sunday as an opportunity to bring together all of our worshipers at one time and will hold a single Sunday service at 10:30 AM. (There will be no 9:00 AM worship service offered on these days.)

While the usual 9:00 and 10:30 worship formats differ somewhat and each is valuable, it is also valuable to gather all our members and friends together as one community, singing and praying together. 

Fifth Sunday, One Community embraces worshipers of all ages. There is no Sunday School programming this day, and families will be together in the Sanctuary. This is a time for all to remember and live into the vows we make at baptism to help our young people grow in faith and become familiar with the rhythms of worship.

The "Fifth Sunday, One Community" dates for 2023 are:

January 29

April 30

July 30

October 29

December 31

THe Mask Question - Answered!

Masks optional as of October 1, 2022.

Masks are now optional for: 

  • In-person worship including regular Sunday services, funerals/memorials, or special worship events.
  • Meetings with staff.
  • Small group meetings.
  • Music ensembles.
  • Community or private groups holding events in St. Paul's spaces.

Masks are still required for:

  • Staff & volunteers working in the Nursery.
  • Staff & volunteers working in programming focused on pre-school age children.

We expect all members of the St. Paul's community to show care for one another by:

  • Treating others with respect, whether mask-wearing or non-mask-wearing.
  • Staying home if you feel sick.
  • Staying home if you test positive for covid or are exposed to covid, using current CDC guidelines.

Some other FAQ's:

  • St. Paul's will continue to make hand sanitizer and disposable face masks available in the Narthex for any who wish to use them.
  • There are no covid-centered seating capacity or social distancing restrictions in the Sanctuary.
  • Public or large-scale meal events and indoor receptions or repasts will continue to be unavailable mainly due to building use concerns; this issue will be re-evaluated in December 2022.
  • Small groups may ask participants to wear masks for specific activities if requested by immune-compromised or vaccine-ineligible individuals. Please see your group leader if you have specific concerns.

Thank you for showing care for one another throughout the pandemic, and into the next phase of re-opening. We know that wearing masks reduces covid transmission, and that vaccinations reduce the likelihood of serious illness. We also know that gathering together at any time carries risks of spreading infectious diseases. Only you can decide what is right for yourself or your family based on your health conditions and comfort levels.
