Worship This Month...

We will worship in-person, with masks, each Sunday for the remainder of 2021.

Worship in the Sanctuary

October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31

9:00 and 10:30 AM

Communion is offered weekly at the 9:00 service, and offered at both 9:00 & 10:30 on the first Sunday of each month.

Try something scary and new this Halloween! We invite children and daring adults to come in costume for the 10:30 worship service on October 31. Sunday School will not be held so children can participate with their families in worship.

The Sanctuary Choir leads the music and presents an anthem at the 10:30 service.

Nursery care for those under age 2 is available at both services year-round. Sunday School for students in grade 5 and younger is offered during the 10:30 worship hour most Sundays. Please visit the Children's page for more information.

The 10:30 service will continue to be live-streamed each Sunday at stpaulsk.org/worship/worship-at-home.

Worship at St. Paul's

St. Paul's offers in-person worship every Sunday. 

We will do our best to make improvements each week as restrictions evolve between Montgomery County and the State of Maryland and as best practices change. We ask for everyone's patience as we navigate the church's reopening and for prayers for the church staff as we try to anticipate each question and adjust. We may fall short and take the occasional stumble along the way, but through your prayers and God's grace, we will all be filled with the Holy Spirit!

Covid-related protocols (effective September 5, 2021):

  • All those in attendance will wear masks covering the mouth and nose the entire time they are in the building. 
  • For indoor services: Sign in using the attendance register pads in the pews. There will be no sign-in at the door. No pre-registration is required for worship.
  • Bibles, Hymnals, and attendance pads will be available in the pews.
  • Prayer Request forms and blank offering envelopes are available at the Welcome Desk. You may pick one up, fill it in, and leave it in the offering plate. Prayer requests may also be submitted at stpaulsk.org/community/prayer-requests.
  • All pews are available for seating. Please continue to maintain physical distancing as much as possible.
  • Those who wish to use Nursery Care or Sunday School should pre-register online to ensure an appropriate child/caregiver ratio. Please CLICK HERE to see more information on children's programming.
  • Printed bulletins WILL be offered. Those taking a bulletin are asked to keep it and carry it out of worship at the end of the service and place it in the recycling bin or take it home.
  • Offering plates continue to be available at stations for those who wish to drop off an offering; plates will not be passed among the pews.
  • On Communion Sundays: pastors will distribute pre-packaged communion elements for worshipers to receive, then safely consume at home.
  • Any person who does not follow these protocols will be asked to leave the service.
  • Ushers will be available to answer questions and provide assistance.
  • We will not have social gatherings in the building before or after worship. If you wish to socialize, please make use of outdoor spaces, including Reinhardt Park across the street. We encourage mask wearing and distancing, even in outdoor settings. Caring for the most vulnerable among us is part of our calling.
  • Sanctuary doors may remain open for extra ventilation. Please dress accordingly. The HVAC has been upgraded with a modular ionization air purification device (a GPS-IMOD) and will provide extra airflow.
  • When outdoor services are offered, please bring your own chairs and arrange your seating to keep distance between family groups or established pods.

The 10:30 worship service will also be live-streamed for those who prefer to participate from home. Visit the Worship at Home page to find the livestream link and the worship bulletin in a downloadable *pdf format.

St. Paul’s hopes all who are able to be vaccinated against covid-19 will demonstrate Christ-like love for themselves and their neighbors by receiving the vaccine.

Child Care and Sunday School:

  • Nursery care for children age 2 and younger will be provided during both 9:00 and 10:30 worship services year-round.
  • Sunday School programming for children in Grade 5 and younger will be available during the 10:30 service on most Sundays. Pre-registration requested with walk-ins accepted as our numbers allow. (During August, children will be in worship in the Sanctuary with their loved ones, to experience the rhythm of worship and grow as members of our family of faith.)
  • Adults should pre-register their child(ren) to ensure a safe caregiver-to-child ratio. Go to the Children's page to register or read more. Sunday morning walk-ins will be accepted if our numbers allow.
