A typical worship service is about an hour in length. Whether traditional or contemporary, our worship follow this typical flow:
Gathering - Gathering Song(s), Confession and Forgiveness, and Prayer of the Day
Word - Scripture, Sermon, Sermon song, Creed, Prayers, and Sharing of the Peace
Meal - Offering, Thanksgiving, Lord's Prayer, and Holy Communion
Sending - Blessing, Sending Song, and Dismissal
Children of all ages are encouraged to come to worship.
Activity bags are available for your use, located just outside the sanctuary.
When a Children's Message is offered, encourage your young one to come forward. If they are too shy to come forward on their own, feel free to come up with them.
We know there are times when a Cry Room is helpful for you.
The Cry Room is located just outside the sanctuary - there you can watch and hear the service.
The sacrament of Holy Communion is central to our life together. It is celebrated every time we gather for worship. All are welcome! It is the Lord's meal - he is both host and meal. It is he who invites you to share in this meal of grace.
We are the body of Christ. We are in this together, nurtured and equipped to witness and serve. So we do the activities of worship together - in teams.
The entire membership of St. Paul's is divided into 11 Worship Teams. Each worship team is assigned to one month of the year. Eleven teams are used so that a rotation can be implemented that prevents one team from always getting "saddled" with responsibility for a particularly busy month (December, March).
Tasks which teams are asked to carry out include:
Reader / Lector
Greeter / Communion Assistants
St. Augustine said, :"Singing is praying twice." Music both enhances our worship to God and embraces our gifts.
