We invite you to worship with us each Sunday!
You will be warmly welcomed as you experience
the love and the grace of God through our
Sunday worship services and teaching.



The folks of St. Paul’s offer worship in which we honor tradition, are challenged with the Christian journey, celebrate the Word and share our stories in the intimate setting that is St. Paul's Church. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to worship for the Children’s Celebration at each service. If you and your family are searching for meaningful worship and discipleship, join us for these opportunities to explore your faith. St. Paul’s is a spiritual home for people of all ages and backgrounds and for families, traditional and non-traditional, where creativity and passion for the Gospel flourish and we are bound by the love of God that draws us together.


In the summer Gail will leave a bit early, but here is the basic schedule, remembering that this, too, can change:

  • JUNE 4 & 25
  • JULY 2, 16 [tentative] & 23
  • AUGUST 27
  • SEPTEMBER [RESUME 8:25 WORSHIP]  10 & 24
  • OCTOBER 1, 22 & 29

  • DECEMBER 3 & 24
  • JANUARY 7 & 28, 2018


Join us here for Pastor Karin's weekly notes!

Dear Friends,

WOW! What a week! Our youth returned from their mission in Tarboro, North Carolina; the Habitat Build went really well; we were AWED and INSPIRED by 60+ youth in Crossflame Choir and Orchestra AND we started VBS!!! As I mentioned Sunday, we may look small on the outside, but St. Paul’s is full of ministry! In particular, we are loaded with mission and music ministry! And there is more to come!!!

I know many of you are “in transit” on vacation and have yards to mow and golf to play, but get to worship when you are in town—you are cheating yourself out of wonderful ways in which to be inspired and connected! Invite your out-of-town guests to worship and fellowship as well! Lots of folks are moving into the area—take a moment and invite new neighbors to St. Paul’s. And again and again, I am reminded that we have so much to be grateful for. My experiences in Nicaragua are prompts of the stark realities in which others live. Simple things like getting to and from church are not so simple there. One of the families makes it a point to put their paralyzed son on a cart with his makeshift wheelchair in tow so that they can worship at Las Parcelas—and I can personally testify that the road to that church is not one on which any of us would want to drive, let alone push a cart with a paralyzed teen. And this young man continues to offer a memorized verse of scripture each Sunday—it truly humbled me when he, without hesitation, said in his halting speech, a verse in Spanish.

And as our world continues to struggle with evil and chaos, may we—as reminded in our VBS Bible Points this week-- be the bearers of comfort, patience, peace, love and joy! Together, the family of St. Paul’s can do this each and every day!

With a grateful heart,

Pastor Karin
