Visit on Sunday

What to Expect
Ushers will greet you at the door Sunday morning with a service bulletin.  The worship bulletins include the liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer, all service music and hymns, and easy notations for you to follow

You are welcome in the Episcopal Church, and so the first and best resource we offer are your neighbors in the pews.  Just say, “I’m visiting,” and they will gladly help.

Although there are customary postures, such as standing and kneeling, in Episcopal Worship, you are invited to be seated at any point according to your needs and comfort.

Hearing enhancement devises are available from an usher.


Children
Children are an integral part of our Parish and are welcome at all our services. We encourage families with children to sit at the front of the church so that children can easily see, hear, and participate in worship.  Crayons and children’s bulletins, which follow the readings for each Sunday are available from the ushers.  Learn more ≫


Nursery
A nursery is available in the Children’s Ministry Center on Sunday mornings and for many special services.  Please check the event announcement for evening services.

Our Nursery is staffed each Sunday with two Nursery caregivers. We will be happy to assist you in getting your child settled in the nursery so you can enjoy church without having to worry. Our silent pager system will allow us to contact you if your child is in need. Feel free to come in and stay a while to help your child get acquainted with the staff and the other children. We want you and your child to feel welcome in the Saint Paul’s Nursery!  Learn more ≫


Communion
Our service centers on the Holy Eucharist (Communion).  All who come in faith are welcome at the Lord’s table.

If you wish seated communion, please notify an usher.


Let us know of your visit

Please join us for Lemonade on the Lawn following the service.

If you would like, fill out a visitor’s card, located in each pew, and hand it to one of our clergy or an usher at the end of the service, or sign the Visitor’s Book located in the Narthex.  We look forward to getting to know you better.
