We have returned to online worship only. The Council vote allows for small group gatherings of 15 people or less to continue in our building (Sunday School, Women's Guild, Nutty Knitters, etc.), if desired, with wearing of face masks and social distancing required.
St. Paul's is a wonderful congregation of intimate size and broad diversity. With families that have farmed in the area for many generations to young couples building nearby homes, we are a dynamic and yet harmonious family of faith.
Our individual beliefs range from conservative to liberal, from certainty to doubt. Members have grown up in various Catholic or Protestant traditions or no tradition at all. We trust that there is room in the arms of Christ for a wide variety of beliefs, and we make room for one another in our hearts.
We also agree with comedienne Gracie Allen’s sentiment, “Never put a period where God has put a comma.” We continue to listen to the wisdom and truth of God in sermon, silence, scripture and from one another. We extend to all an invitation to join us in that conversation.
You, your family, and friends are invited to join us for online worship this Sunday, December 6, at 9:30 am. This Sunday is the Second Sunday of Advent and we will light the 2nd Advent candle during worship. You are encouraged to prepare your Advent wreath or 2 purple/blue candles before the service so that we can light the Advent candles together. Please find attached the Advent candle lighting liturgy for this Sunday for you to use in your home. This Sunday is also Communion Sunday, so you are also encouraged to prepare a Table of juice/wine and bread/crackers in your home so that we can share the sacrament of holy communion together during worship.
