Join Us This Sunday

Each Sunday we celebrate Communion together at 10:30 am with music, hymns, scripture readings, a sermon and prayers. Although masks are optional, we strongly encourage those worshiping to wear a mask for their own protection and the protection of others. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Paul’s.

“Happy Holidays … Seasons Greetings!!”

Each year there is conversation about how to greet each other during the Christmas season. For many there is a principle at play and they claim their right to wish other’s a “Merry Christmas”.

However, I personally don’t find my celebration of Christmas compromised by the way others celebrate and how they refer to this season.
