Current Worship Series - Unshakable Faith - Starting February 10, 2019

 

Worshipping with the Psalms is the focal point of this series.  We are assured that the promises of God are steadfast and sure. In these days of instant gratification and fleeting interest, the Psalms remind us of the steadfast nature of God, calling each of us who are made in the image of God to be steadfast in our faith.  We will prepare ourselves to start the season of Lent with an Unshakable Faith.

 

Sermons

 

Worship Times

At St. Paul's, we offer three different worship services each weekend.

  • The Contemporary Worship service begins every Saturday at 5:00 P.M. The service is casual and the music is contemporary. Children's Church is offered during the sermon time for preschool and elementary age kids. After the worship service, all are invited to stay to share in a dinner together. 
  • The Casual Worship service begins Sunday at 8:30 A.M. This service is perfect for early risers and those who want to worship with a small, friendly group of people.
  • The Traditional Worship service begins Sunday at 10:45 A.M. This service is primarily traditional with modern elements. Children's Church is offered during the sermon time for preschool and elementary age kids.

No matter which worship service you attend, you will find a warm welcome and a sense of belonging.

Sacraments (Holy Communion and Baptism)

Many people ask about Holy Communion (also known as "the Lord's Supper" and "Eucharist") as well as Christian Baptism, so here are the basics...

  • We accept Baptism from any Christian tradition, so we do not demand that someone be baptized "again" to be part of this church--we believe God's grace is still in effect in that person's life.
  • We also believe that all persons, of any "age or stage" in life, are candidates for baptism--including the very old, the very young, or persons with various challenges.
  • This spirit of openness extends to Communion also--a person does not have to be a member of this or any other Methodist church in order receive communion.  In fact, we believe that a person who has not yet committed themselves to Christ might come forward for the Lord's Supper and in that way offer themselves to God
  • All of these beliefs are anchored in a profound trust in the goodness and grace of a loving God who "is able to do far more than we can think or ask" (Ephesians 3:20).
  • If you have more questions regarding the sacraments, our pastor would be happy to discuss them in the context of the United Methodist Church.

Worship Space

Finally, a word about our worship "space" at St. Paul's...

  • Upon entering the church, most people notice the wide open "airy" feeling of the place which is meant to convey a spirit of welcome.
  • The layout is simple, a way of saying that approaching God need not be complicated or difficult.
  • We think the design is both modern and ancient--on the one hand, many churches centuries ago were built without elaborate details;  but on the other hand, St. Paul's was one of the first churches to build "projection technology" (with screen and video equipment) into the facility.
  • People from all sorts of church backgrounds have commented on the way our worship space puts them at ease and helps them focus on and worship God.
