Frequently Asked  QUESTIONS

When is your worship service?
From September  – May we offer two services on Sundays at 9 A.M. and 10:30 A.M.
In the Summer (Memorial Day – Labor Day), worship is on Sundays at 9:30 A.M.  Presently our Sunday services are online at 10:30 during this pandemic phase we are experiencing.   

Is there a dress code?
No – there is no dress code.   Just come comfortable. 

What should I expect when I arrive? 
As you walk into the sanctuary, you will receive a bulletin from our ushers that describes the order of worship for that Sunday. Please contact an usher if you need a large-print bulletin, or any other assistance.

Where do I sit in the sanctuary? 
Anywhere you like.   (There may be some restrictions as we re-open and need to maintain social distance seating during the pandemic).

What can I expect during worship? 
The order of service is outlined in the bulletin for each week and includes time for prayer and music as well as a scripture reading and a message from the Pastor.    Worship services usually last around one hour.

Do I have to do anything? 
Guests are never singled out during worship and are not asked to wear name tags.  We are happy you stopped by.

Is there music in your service? 
Yes. We sing hymns that are both traditional and contemporary.  We offer music from September through May from the St. Paul’s musical groups:  the Adult Choir, Bells of Praise, and St. Paul’s Brass. In the summer months, special music is provided each Sunday by various St. Paul’s members.

Do you serve Communion?  Yes, we serve Communion on the first Sunday of each month, after the sermon.  St. Paul’s observes an open table and the Sacrament of Communion is open to all Christians.

Do you have anything for my children during worship?
Yes. We have “children’s activity bags” that an usher can give you to use for your children during the service. These bags contain books, stuffed animals, coloring pages, and crayons.

Do you offer childcare during worship?
Yes. We have a nursery with a dedicated staff to care for your child(ren) while you worship. The nursery is located on the same floor as the sanctuary.  An usher can direct you.

What about Sunday School?
From September through May, 10:30-11:30 A.M., St. Paul’s offers Christian Education for babies 6 months old to teens in high school. At 10:30, children attend church with their parents for the first 15 minutes. After the opening musical section, teachers escort the children to the age-appropriate classroom.  After the worship service, parents can pick up their children from their classroom.

What happens after worship?
Following our 9:00 worship (9:30 during the summer months) St. Paul’s offers a time of coffee, juice, breakfast treats, and fellowship.  From September – May, “Coffee Hour” is from 10 – 10:30 A.M.  In the summer, it begins at 10:30 A.M. It’s a great opportunity to meet some of the members and other visitors.

Also after worship, and if you care to do so,  Pastor Greg very much likes to welcome you for stopping to visit with us.  Just check in with him.

Is there anyway to watch the service online?
We offer a live stream video of the worship service available.  Duing this pandemic time,  we are holding one online service on Sunday,  live streamed at 10:30.

Pastor Greg’s Sunday Messages (and past messages) are also available on our website.
