About the Liturgy
Each Sunday morning we come together to worship God and celebrate the Holy Eucharist. Our services are rich in liturgy and tradition following the Book of Common Prayer (1979). St. Paul’s seeks to offer worship that is inviting for people of all ages, with joyful music and preaching that seeks to bring the Gospel to life. An Episcopal worship service may seem difficult to follow if it is unfamiliar to you. Everyone is encouraged to participate as you are able, and you are always welcome to ask someone near you for assistance during the service. We hope you will come and join us.
Sunday 8:00a Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This celebration of the Eucharist is our principle service on Sunday mornings. This early service has a quiet, intimate style, celebrated typically without music but with a sermon. The Rite I liturgy uses a more traditional and formal tone that highlights the long standing Anglican tradition that goes back to the early days of the Church of England.
Sunday 10:30a Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Although the service is traditional in liturgical style following the Rite II form, it is relaxed for all to feel welcome and includes music from the 1982 Episcopal Hymnal. The 10:30a service also offers Children’s Chapel. Children begin the service in church, leave after the Gospel lesson, and return during the peace in time for Eucharist.

Childcare is available for infants and children through age 3 from 7:45a to 11:45a. The nursery is located in the Education Building next to the Church.
Wednesday 12:00p Holy Eucharist & Healing Prayer
On Wednesdays at noon, a thirty minute Eucharist service is offered. This service uses readings from Lesser Feasts and Fasts and offers various lives of saints and church events to reflect upon. The service also offers a period for the laying on of hands and anointing of oil with healing prayers.
