Youth & Family
Mystery makes curiosity, and that is why it is so natural for children to want to know more about religion. Children seem to be born with this awesome and natural relationship with God. Sunday mornings are a time to support our children by giving them ways to speak about and act on their faith
We mark the major events of our lives through worship and prayers at St Paul’s. Weddings, Baptisms, and Funerals are offered as ways to help honor these moments and to recognize God’s presence in them.
At St. Paul’s our Sunday Forums seek to provide a diverse theological, spiritual, and biblical education for our members. We educate ourselves on church history; develop tools to link our faith to daily life; reflect and share our own experiences through liturgy, mission, evangelism, stewardship, and service; respect each other’s faith story to live with empathy and compassion; and put our Christian faith in dialogue with other traditions. We offer programs in different formats to provide opportunities for all to participate.
Worship is at the heart of who we are and what we do at St. Paul’s – it inspires us individually and as a community and it also empowers and encourages our varied ministries. There are many opportunities for you to be involved in worship ministries: Acolyte, Altar Guild, Eucharistic Minister, Reader, Usher or Greeter, or member of one of our choirs.
Jesus said,“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another… By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Care and support for the congregation happens in a variety of ways, through the ministry of both the clergy and laypeople.
Jesus taught the disciples, “go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the Kingdom of God is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously.” Responding to that command and inspired by the belief that in serving the neediest we are serving Christ, St. Paul’s has a long tradition of generosity and of reaching out in love.
