|What is St. Paul's? |
St. Paul's is a loving community of committed Christians. We care about each other and we want to care about YOU. We are diverse in our backgrounds and individual beliefs and yet we walk together by making our experience of Jesus Christ more real within the common bond of our Episcopal family.
St. Paul's would like to welcome you to a special Christian community where you will be encouraged to develop your own personal journey to:
Grow in your own special faith.
Assist families in their moral and spritual growth.
Support each other through life's crisis.
Develop meaningful opportunities for outreach to others.
COME WORSHIP WITH US!
|Who are Episcopalians and what do they believe?|
Episcopalians are people of faith. We believe the Holy Scriptures contain all that is necessary for our salvation, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that the Holy Spirit is God's love working through us as the church.
We preserve our faith through a tradition which goes back to England in 400 AD. Tradition is reflected in our church government, our worship, our determinations as a church and diocese.
Episcopalians can be enthusiastic about their belief and joyful in their worship. We believe that God gives us reason and intellect, and through application of reason, our path in belief may become clear.
John and Becky Tarver lead Bible Study before church at 9:00 a.m.

From Don Kiefer, Bishop’s Warden:
Dear All, Sheryl and I recently attended a lecture by William Least-Heat Moon, author of Blue Highways. The book from the early 80's, which has been a favorite of ours ( I've read it at least twice), details Moon's circumnavigation of the country in a van in which he lived for the duration of the trip. Moon began the trip from Columbia, Missouri basically to sort out his future as he lost his job and was getting a divorce at the time. But the book is less about him as it is about the people he met. He returned inspired and wrote the book and now is a well known author. How many times have each of us wanted to "run away"? Our problems seem destined to get the best of us. Perhaps becoming emotionally invested in others, concentrating on knowing them, is a way of putting everything into perspective! We all need a breather from what we believe is about to consume us. As we begin this summer season, my wish for all of us is that we get that opportunity to "run away", to take a vacation. Be a tourist, visit family, or just kick back and read a book (Blue Highways?), and be refreshed.
P.S. We will miss you while you are away. Travel safe!
