Noisy Mass

Toddlers and Their Families

Every Sunday – 8:45am
NOISY MASS is a place for toddlers and their parents to enjoy a welcoming worship service where singing, praying, squirming and interactive sermons are all part of the plan.  The service is short and sweet (30 minutes) but contains the best elements of a regular service including communion. We gather in the Family Ministry Center off of the Parish Hall
at 8:45 a.m. every Sunday.

Soft Space during the 7:30am and 9:30am services

On Sundays we have rugs in the sanctuary and chapel where kids are invited to settle in, color, read a book or play with some simple toys while the rest of the family takes part in the service.

Spirit Service for Every Generation

St. Paul’s Youth Programs!

There are a number of ways that teens can connect at Saint Paul’s.  Many of our youth serve as acolytes and youth readers at our 9:30am services.  This is a great way to take part in the services, learn more about our traditions and do volunteer work in our community.

Additionally we have select youth activities throughout the year including swim parties, outdoor adventures, educational series, volunteer work projects and more.

Family Camp



For many people, St. Paul’s Family Camp is the quintessential part of their summer relaxation and recreation. As many as 100 people gather over a two-week period at a private site on the Eel River in Garberville (200 miles north of Walnut Creek) for daily conversation, games, sharing of meals, chores, campfires and singing, bridge, crafts for all ages and a Sunday service. It is an all-ages opportunity to get to know other church families better. Many newcomers have attended and become faithful Eel River fans.  Lots of families choose to attend the ‘middle weekend’ of the two weeks (July 20-22).
