OPEN AND AFFIRMING
St. Pauls is an Open and Affirming congregation. We accept everyone without regard to race, color, age, marital status, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or physical ability.
TRADITIONAL YET UNCONVENTIONAL
While our past informs and inspires us, we remain firmly rooted in the present and committed to the future. Our services follow traditional liturgy with an unconventional twist.
We’re singles, families, children, seniors, believers and doubters. Our members and friends come from all walks and stages of life, and are proof that St. Pauls has a home for everyone.
For the children and youth of St. Pauls, opportunities abound to practice our faith: exploring faith stories, creating worship experiences, singing together, serving others through outreach projects, and playing together.
Whether you’d like to join us for pickup basketball games or bible study, participate in a play reading or trivia night, roll up your sleeves for a service project or protest – St. Pauls has a little bit of something for everyone.
We’ve quite literally been “making a joyful sound in the city” thanks to our incredible music programs. From our Chancel Choir to Children’s choirs, Intergenerational Orchestra to Bible Off Broadway, music is integral to the spirit of St. Pauls.
Get a feel for the wonderful people who serve as our pastors and staff.
