Our Services

What are services like?
Worship Styles Episcopalians worship in many different styles, ranging from very formal, ancient, and multi-sensory rites with lots of singing, music, fancy clothes (called vestments), and incense, to informal services with contemporary music (St. Paul's style happens to be a tasteful blend of both). Yet all worship in the Episcopal Church is based in the Book of Common Prayer, which gives worship a familiar feel, no matter where you go. Liturgy and Ritual Worship in the Episcopal Church is said to be "liturgical," meaning that the congregation participates in the service (liturgy is a Latin word literally translated as "work of the people") and follows service forms and prays from texts that don't change greatly from week to week during a season of the year. This sameness from week to week gives worship a rhythm that becomes comforting and familiar to the worshipers. At St. Paul's we like to mix it up a little more than some, though the "look and feel" remains the same. For the first-time visitor, liturgy may be exhilarating... or confusing. Services may involve standing, sitting, kneeling, sung or spoken responses, and other participatory elements that may provide a challenge for the first-time visitor. However, liturgical worship can be compared with a dance: once you learn the steps, you come to appreciate the rhythm, and it becomes satisfying to dance, again and again, as the music changes.

What is the community like?
The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All Are Welcome All who seek God and are drawn to Christ are welcome at the Table at St. Paul's. This is not an Episcopal meal - this is our Lord's meal, and He bids you, Welcome!
