Worship is one of the best ways to grow in faith! When you walk into St. Paul's, you'll be welcomed by people who genuinely care about you! And worshipping with them will encourage you and you'll be supporting them. All the words to the service will be in the bulletin and on the screens so you can engage your spirit; worship isn't a "spectator sport!" You'll be invited to sing. We all know public singing isn't big anymore, but we've also sung along with a great song while driving or at the ball game and it really feels good to sing and lift up your soul!
Then we'll learn from the Bible. Sure it's a very ancient book, but it's also God's primary way of communicating with us. Quite often we find that, old or not, the Bible has some wisdom and guidance and application we really need. And at St. Paul's we celebrate communion, to which everyone is invited, every week. Jesus encouraged everyone who wants to be closer to him to eat this simple meal of bread and wine (or grape juice if you prefer.) He reminded us that by eating the bread we remember his love by giving his body for us. And in drinking the wine we remember his love by dying on the cross for us. If this is new to you, we'd love to talk further about this!
St. Paul's currently offers two worship styles, because He made us all different.
The 9:00 AM Traditional Sunday Service is more classic, using a variety of settings from the Lutheran Book of Worship and other worship resources. Services include scripture readings, responsive prayers, anthems by the choir and music from a soaring pipe organ. Communion is celebrated every Sunday.
The 10:30 AM Contemporary Sunday Service is more spirit-filled service led by a praise band consisting of guitars, keyboard, drums and other contemporary instruments. The music is joyful and easy to sing. Communion is also celebrated every Sunday.
The 6:00 PM Fisher's of Men and Women Tuesday Service is held in the downstairs Fellowship Hall where there is music and the same message as Sunday morning. This service is especially a ministry to those in financial need, as it includes a free dinner as well. Communion is also celebrated every Tuesday.
Both services use screens in the worship space so we can worship with our eyes in addition to our voices. Both services also offer a professionally staffed nursery and at the 10:30 service the children leave in the early part of the service to enjoy KidSafari!
Another highlight is an excellent message from Pastor Stuart which is both Biblically based, but also applicable to our everyday life. If you want to check out a recent message, which you'll find a blessing, check out Pastor Stuart's blog or podcast!
Many people comment on how much they enjoy and are blessed by worship at St. Paul's and it's our greatest hope you can be one of them soon!!! Plan a visit here soon!
