Our Adult Sunday School Class meets in the Guild Room at 9:30am

and is led by the Rector. This time allows for discussion on the previous

Sunday's sermon and lessons.

Our Nursery is available for infants through toddlers during Sunday

School and 10:30 service. We have two full time attendants and a

paging service that offers a safe and secure setting.

The Choir is a multi-generational group that leads the singing of hymns

and other service music and presents an offertory anthem at the 10:30

service. They present a variety of music, from traditional to

contemporary. The choir's season is from September through June, with

rehearsals on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30. All are welcome, the

only requirement is a willingness to share your talents.

Saint Paul's Ringing Ensemble is an ecumenical handbell choir that rings at the 10:30

service on the third Sunday of the month from September through June. Rehearsals are

on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:00. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required.

There is room for more ringers!

During July and August, vocal and instrumental soloists and small groups are encouraged

to provide the offertory anthem. If you are interested in participating in the music ministry

at Saint Paul's, please contact Al and he will gladly answer any questions you might have.

Laying-on-of-Hands is offered at both services most Sundays except during the summer.

The lay healing minister is available at the kneeling bench at the right front side of the nave

during Communion. Everyone is welcome to use this healing rite as an opportunity to allow

someone to pray for/with you or for someone else on your behalf. Nothing is too small or too

large to be prayed about and may include requests for physical, emotional, mental or

spiritual healing; prayers of praise and thanksgiving; and requests for blessings from God.

The healing rite is administered during communion by a lay healing minister from the bench

next to the pulpit.

Christian Education and Family Life are an integral part of our family here at St. Pauls. Sunday School for children ages 4-5th grade takes place at 10:15 on Sunday morning and runs through the passing of the peace. This allows the children time for a lesson and the opportunity to share in Communion with their parents and church family. Sunday school for youth in grades 6-12 takes place the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 9:30am. Our new youth group program or S.W.A.G.G. (Students With A Godly Grace) group as it has been dubbed meets on the 4th Sunday of the month from 4-5:30pm.
