What to Expect

Welcome.  Whether you have never been to church, been away from church for awhile or looking for a new church home you are welcome at St. Paul's.

UPON ARRIVAL
You will be welcomed by a member of the greeting team as you enter the building.  On your way to the sanctuary you have the opportunity to stop by the Cafe area and check out upcoming activities.  As you enter the sanctuary you'll be greeted by an usher with bulletin - this will have an outline of the service, upcoming activities and prayer concerns.  Take a seat wherever you'd like and enjoy the service.

 

Our 8:00 Contemporary Service features a full band of guitar, bass, piano, drums, and vocals led by our worship leader. In this informal service we invite people to fully participate in worship and praise to God. Our worship begins with an extended time of singing and praise which opens and prepares our hearts to receive what God desires to teach us. 

 

 

 

 

Our 10:15 Traditional Service features a more classic, traditional worship experience which includes hymns and the powerful pipe organ sound of our 50 rank Phoenix digital organ.  Enjoy guest pianists or vocalists from time to time or perhaps a prelude by our bell choir, the Wesleyan Ringers . The St. Paul's choir, led by Gail Malloy, honors God with their voices and helps the congregation prepare for a timely and relevant message. 

 

  

CHILDREN

 

 

All children are encouraged to check out the Welcome Bag Tree at the back of the sanctuary.  Each bag has an assortment of objects to keep them engaged during worship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

0 to Age 3 - During all services childcare is provided for toddlers and infants in our Son Safari Nursery at all worship services for children three years and younger in a safe, loving atmosphere that sparks imagination and wonder as youngsters discover God's world.  The Nursery is located directly behind the sanctuary.

 

Age 3 to Grade 3 - Younger children have the opportunity to meet at the back of the sanctuary for Kids' Worship (the time is noted in the bulletin) during our 8:00am service.  They will be escorted to the basement.  Your child can be picked up in the basement after service or they will be brought to their Sunday School class. 

 

 

AFTER THE SERVICE

Sunday School - Our Sunday School hour is 9:15 - 10:00 between the Contemporary and Traditional services.  We have many Sunday School classes - ask someone and they will direct you...or stop in the Cafe.

The Cafe - A great place to meet folks after the service.  You always find some St. Paul's people ready to chat.  Between services you'll find snacks and coffee available! 

Worship is our chance to forget ourselves and come together to minister to others in worship and praise to our Creator and Savior. Whichever style of worship and music helps you to accomplish this, we invite you to join us this Sunday as we join together to draw near to God.
