Saint Paul’s Episcopal
Join us for Eucharist each Sunday at 10 am
In September of 1863 St. Paul’s Episcopal Church stood between two armies in what became one of the deadliest days in American history. As the cannon balls landed on the church, our edifice stood as a witness to a greater cause—the way of peace and life. Our building did not survive the conflict, but we persisted in that witness, rising from the rubble in the years to come.
We stood then, as we do today, in the middle ground. We are diverse lot, coming from widely ranging experiences and points of view. In a world in which civil conversations are becoming increasingly difficult, we focus our efforts on finding common ground, civility, grace, and love for one another. We are not all the same—and we kind of like it that way. It is entirely possible to be in community without conformity, and that is what St. Paul’s is all about.
Sunday morning worship is the heartbeat of our community. We sing heartily and listen intently to scripture and proclamation. We pray together and share our lives with one another. We also reach out to the world around us in lots of different ways, trying to bear witness to the way of love taught us by Jesus of Nazareth. Join us for worship on Sunday morning at 10:00. You may find yourself challenged, comforted, or maybe even changed. One thing we can guarantee is that you will be welcomed.
Peace and joy,
Mark Wastler, Rector
