St. Paul's strives to promote Christ's presence in the daily spiritual, emotional and intellectual development of all its members. To that end, we offer education programs for all ages on Sunday mornings, as well as special events throughout the program year.
Sunday Programs for Children (Infant to Grade 5) and Youth (Grades 6-12)
Sunday School is offered at 9:30 a.m. for Preschool-Grade 12. At 10:15 a.m., children in Kindergarten-Grade 5 take part in The Gathering and Children’s Chapel, joining their family in the Sanctuary for Holy Communion. Children in Grades 6-12 attend the entire Eucharist service. Nursery care for infants to 3-year-olds is offered from 8:15 a.m. through the end of the 10:30 a.m. service each Sunday.
Other programs for our younger children include Vacation Bible School each summer (ages Preschool-Grade 5), the family Christmas Pageant (all ages), and visits to our homebound parishioners.
Youth members of St. Paul’s are encouraged to become fully involved in the life of the parish by participating in the worship services (acolytes, choir members, lectors), social events (Lock-Ins, Rock the Mission!, 5th Quarter, Ice Skating) and meaningful outreach projects (Youth Mission Trip, various youth-directed projects). Preparation for Youth Confirmation begins in the 7th Grade. Culmination of the Confirmation process may take place any year from 9th through 12th Grade, or as an adult.
For more information about current education programs and events, refer to Connections, our monthly newsletter, or contact the church office.
Sunday Programs for Adults
The centerpiece of adult education at St. Paul’s is the Adult Forum, on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Members of St. Paul's and guests offer thoughtful, engaging, and informative sessions. Join us in the Parish Hall at 9:30 a.m. for coffee, and food for the mind, heart and spirit. For upcoming adult education programs, refer to Connections, our monthly newsletter.
St. Paul’s invites adults who feel called to renew their baptismal covenant to be part of the formation process for adult Confirmation. This series of classes and events is for: adult Episcopalians who have not been confirmed, who wish to celebrate Confirmation as the strengthening of their baptismal covenant; adults who have been confirmed in other Protestant communions, who wish to be confirmed as Episcopalians; adults who have been baptized and confirmed in the Roman Catholic communion, who wish to be received by the Bishop into the Episcopal communion; adults who have never been baptized, and who wish to be initiated into the Church through Baptism and Confirmation; and adult confirmed Episcopalians who have been away from the Church for a time and wish to make a public renewal of their baptismal commitment.
St. Paul’s offers two Days of Reflection for Adults and Youth each year, one during Lent and one during Advent. Join us for these daylong opportunities to integrate education and spirituality.
St. Paul's Book Club
St. Paul’s Book Club meets the second Tuesday of each month in members’ homes. Join parishioners for food, fun and fellowship as they discuss each month’s book selection. See Connections for book choices and contact information.
