What to expect

Thanks for stopping by!

Here's some quick - and hopefully useful - information 

We'd love for you to be a part of our community this Sunday!

When we meet?

Every Sunday

9:30 a.m. for Worship.

8:30 a.m. for Sunday School & Bible Study(Except during the summer)

10:40 a.m. Choir after worship.

On the third Sunday we have a fellowship time in the fellowship hall with snacks!

Through the month we have various Bible studies and meetings with the men, women and youth groups.

What to Expect?

What time should I arrive?

The service starts at 9:30am. Arriving at 9:15 usually gives you time to grab a bulletin, find some friendly faces, and settle in before everything begins.

What should I wear?

Although our worship style is somewhat traditional, our approach is versatile. Some people dress up, others wear jeans. We want you to feel at home so come as you are - however you are most comfortable!

What will happen?

We keep a relatively consistent worship format. Below is just a snapshot of our Sunday; If you're unfamiliar with certain words or concepts, don't hesitate to ask (it can even be anonymous if you want)! 

  • Greeting from Pastor Dan
  • Song of praise (we like the Gloria Patri)
  • Our faith confession
  • Worship song (sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary)
  • Bible reading
  • Prayer (Pastor Dan delivers this; and we join at the end with the Lord's Prayer)
  • Worship song
  • Bible reading
  • Bible-based sermon (about 20 mins.)
  • Worship song/offering collection
  • Closing statement from Pastor Dan
  • Closing song
  • Short time of reflection/silent prayer

When will the service finish?

10:45 at the latest.

Can I leave halfway through if I feel uncomfortable?

If you feel the need, you can leave at any time!

Will I be the odd one out?

Nope, there are people at Saint Paul's from many different walks of life. We make an effort to welcome, be gracious, and show kindness to everyone. It's our personal misison to reflect the love God has shown us!

Can I bring my children?

Absolutely, children are a huge part of the church. We have Sunday school and youth group for this reason!

Can I still come if I'm not a Christian - or even not a good person?

Please do! The church is made up of imperfect people who know they need Jesus's saving grace in their lives. It would be strange if any of us were flawless!

Will I be expected to do anything or give any money?

Nope, you won't be bored, embarrassed, or asked for money (we take an offering - but it's for people committed to the Saint Paul's community, not necessarily visitors). However, you will be warmly welcomed, encouraged in your walk with God - and we hope that you would want to come again!
