St. Paul's holds a celebration Holy Eucharist every Sunday morning at 8:00 and 10:30.

The early service uses Rite 1 liturgy, which employs more traditional language, and does not

have music. With an average attendance of 25 people, this service is quiet and

contemplative. The congregation is warm, thoughtful, and friendly.

The later service uses Rite 2 liturgy, which employs more contemporary language, and

features choir and congregational singing. With an average attendance that ranges from 75-

100 people, attendees at this service vary widely in age and life experience, yet find a unity

in Spirit as we worship.

St. Paul's keeps the calendar for the Christian year (this helps us to follow the life of Christ

on a yearly basis) and draws it Sunday scripture readings from the Revised Common

Lectionary (this helps us to hear the word of God as it relates to the Christian year).

The parish holds special services throughout the year including Christmas Eve, The

Epiphany (Jan. 6), Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and Thanksgiving Eve.

All persons who have been baptized in the Christian faith and life are welcome to receive

communion at St. Paul's. We make a conscious effort to help visitors and newcomers

follow the liturgy of our service.
