Please join us on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration for a special Service of Scripture, Prayer, and Hymns for Our Nation. All are welcome – congregation members, friends, family, and neighbors.


As St. Paul writes, “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:1-3).


To ensure that St. Paul's can observe capacity limits and offer six-foot pew distancing, all attending on site will need to preregister, and wear a mask.

First Monday of each month. Two time options: 12:00 noon or 12:30 p.m.

Our pastors look forward to meeting you in the west church lobby for orders of worship, with Holy Communion. Masks will be required and seating will be physically distanced. Registration is not necessary. 


Please note that this opportunity is set aside for those who are not regularly present for in-person worship at church.
