    Note that due to the holiday weekend, July's Communion will move to the 12th


    If physical challenges or concerns about COVID-19 have kept you from in-person church worship or Communion, you are warmly invited to a special small-setting worship opportunity on the first Monday of each month. Our pastors look forward to meeting you in the west church lobby for orders of worship, with Holy Communion. Masks will be optional for worshipers but the pastors will mask for Communion distribution. Seating will be physically distanced and registration is not necessary.

covid protocol changes

In his May 18 letter to the congregation, Pastor Thomas details new COVID-19 protocol changes at St. Paul's.


Highlights of the communication include: 

  • Masks are now optional for church and Bible study
  • Capacity will increase with no need to preregister
  • Choices of distanced and non-distanced seating will be offered
  • Fellowship Breakfast returns on May 30 as an indoor/outdoor hybrid.

Pastor shares, "In many ways, coming out of this pandemic is more complex than going into it. ... We have an incredible opportunity to exercise compassion, respect, and grace toward one another as brothers and sisters in Christ going forward."
