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.
Sanctuary Safety Protocols
At our most recent Church Council meeting, we discussed our COVID protocols, especially as they relate to worship and other group activities in our church. We determined we will continue to follow the CDC COVID guidelines as they are amended and updated. Accordingly, if you are vaccinated and are comfortable, you may attend worship services and other activities in our church without a mask and without the requirement to social distance. If you are not vaccinated, we highly encourage you to continue wearing a mask while in our church and to practice social distancing. As a congregation, whether you choose to continue to wear a mask or choose to go without one, we need to be supportive of each other and respect each other’s personal choices. We will still be Zooming the Church service for those who like that option. The Council will continue to monitor the CDC COVID guidelines and will review and update our protocols accordingly. If you have any questions about this change in our protocols, feel free to ask any member of the Church Council.
You, your family, and friends are invited to join us for Sunday worship at 9:30 am. The sanctuary is open. We are also broadcasting the service on Zoom. Use the link below to join the service online.
