The Lord's Supper, Holy Eucharist, is a central part of our worship at Saint Paul's. Also called "Holy Communion", the Eucharist is the family meal for all Christians and a foretaste of the heavenly banquet. As such, all persons are welcome to receive the bread and wine, and be in communion with God and each other. Holy Eucharist is celebrated at Saint Paul's on Sunday's and Wednesdays, and on other special occasions.
Sunday morning worship begins bright and early at Saint Paul's.
Our 7:30am service is a spoken liturgy of Holy Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer. During the service, we read Scripture, hear an engaging and applicable sermon, pray for the needs of our community and of the world, and celebrate Holy Communion.
Following the 7:30am service each week, a light breakfast and opportunity for fellowship is available in the Parish Hall.
Saint Paul's second service of Holy Eucharist begins at 10:00am.
This service includes lots of singing led by our Choir with acoustic accompaniment of Piano and Guitar, scripture readings, an engaging and applicable sermon, prayers, and Holy Communion. A nursery is available during this service, though children are welcome and encouraged to attend all our services.
Also during the 10:00am service, we provide a age-appropriate lesson on the Gospel for our Pre-K through 5th Grade children called "Follow The Word".
All children and youth ages 3 to 11 are invited to Follow the Word during our 10:00am service. At Follow the Word, children gather with one or more of our adult leaders to hear an age appropriate reading of the Gospel, discuss examples of how we can carry what we learn in church out into the world, and create a "Word Offering" which illustrates a way to understand Jesus's teachings.
Follow The Word begins in the Church prior to the reading of Scripture. The children return during mid-service annoucements.
Every Wednesday at Noon, after Father Keith's 10:45am Bible Study, a spoken service of Holy Eucharist is celebrated in the church. During this service, a special time is set aside to offer prayers for healing for those present and for others in need.
