Welcome to our main landing page for all online ministry
St. Paul's is committed to offering online viewing of our worship services to meet the COVID-19 health considerations of every family. We warmly invite you to join us for worship, whether you participate from home or attend on site.
All of our recorded services can be viewed online at any time. Each Sunday morning we livestream two services: our 8:00 a.m. Sanctuary service (main church), and the Living Stone gym service.
Special Communion: We offer special small-setting communion and worship, set aside for those unable to attend church or who choose to avoid larger crowds. Join us on the first Monday of each month: read more.

10:45AM SUNDAY | Living Stone in gym | Communion on second, fourth, fifth weekends

St. Paul's is pleased to offer in-person church services carefully planned with safety procedures in mind, and in compliance with COVID-19 protocols in St. Louis County.
Safety measures include worshipers wearing masks, complimentary masks, socially-distanced seating, preregistration to ensure compliance with capacity guidelines, between-service surface disinfecting, distanced entrance and exit flow, shortened services, continuous-line communion, pastors gloved and masked for communion, touchless offerings, hymnals removed from pews, and more.
Whether your comfort level currently includes on-site worship or leans toward extra caution and at-home viewing of services, St. Paul's pastors fully support and understand your prayerful decision. At St. Paul's, we know that choices about public worship and interactions are highly personal, carefully chosen, and should wisely reflect one’s age and medical considerations.
• Volunteer to help at church services (assist pastors, guide, sanitize surfaces, candles, offering)
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. "
