“O God of all creation, we come here today because we yearn for a connection with you. We want to feel your presence in our lives, to hear your voice with new ears, and to know how we can serve you better. We want to be completely changed by our relationship with you. Mold us into living symbols of your love. Help our hearts to contain an abundance of joy and forgiveness for others. Teach us how to pray and how to live – make them one and the same. We pray these things in the name of Jesus, the one whom you chose to connect us to you. Amen.”

Education Hour for All begins at 9:30 am (10:15 am Children's Sunday School in the summer) and offers faith formation opportunities for all ages. Sunday School, Confirmation, and various forms of Adult Bible Study are available. Watch for signs to direct you to the event's location.
The worship service begins at 10:30 am (10 am in the summer) and incorporates a creative and respectful mix of music and PowerPoint presentation.
We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. St. Paul's United Methodist Church welcomes to the table all who profess their love of Jesus Christ. You need not be a member of this or any congregation to take part. Particpants are instructed by ushers to walk to the front of the church, take a piece of bread, then choose to dip in the Chalice or take an individual cup at the communion rail. You are invited to kneel at the rails if you wish. Tell an usher if you prefer to be served at your seat.
Children are always welcome in the worship service. We have a Children's Chat approximately 10 minutes into the service. All children and the young at heart are invited to the front of the church for a more intimate talk about that Sunday's sermon topic. Children may stay with their families after Children's Chat or be dismissed to the Nursery, where adults will engage them for the duration of the service.
Coffee and snacks are available after worship in the Fellowship Room.
All ministries and activities are open to everyone; you do not have to be a member of St. Paul's UMC to participate.
