Starting Text about Christian Formation
We offer enriching educational programs each year in the seasons of Advent (the weeks before Christmas) and Lent (the weeks before Easter). These usually take place in the form of a welcoming potluck supper followed by a speaker or presentation and discussion. We open and close in prayer. Check the calendar for current and upcoming forums.
Children and Youth
St. Paul’s welcomes children of all ages!
At 8:45 am we offer Joyful Noise, a 30-minute interactive service for young children and their parents.
On the second Sunday of every month at 9:30 am we host a Spirit Service with our Joyful Noise families. Previous Spirit Services have included sacred dance, interactive sermons, contemporary music, and down-to-earth language. It’s an opportunity for the entire family and people of all ages to worship together in new and creative ways.
Families will find a dedicated space located on the right side of the church, as well as the comfortable Garden Room in back of the sanctuary. Here,we have toys, books, and a TV that broadcasts the service. We also provide nursery care in the Family Ministry Center from 8:45 – 10:45 am. Just ask an usher to point you in the right direction.
