get congregations

praying for the

whole world. Click on the Prayer Cycle button, then on the Prayer community we are praying for this week.

In celebrating the beauty and strength created through diversity, we welcome, value, and include all of God's children regardless of race, culture, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, appearance, or citizenship.​

VIDEOS at  St. Paul's Lutheran Church -- This link will take you to our VIMEO page and you may select any of the Sunday or special worship services, as well as an assortment of other videos related to St. Paul's. There are videos of Pastor Ali Tranvik's Farewell, as well as Vicar Anna Carter's. There are also several concerts and hymn sing-alongs on the vimeo page you may enjoy.

This week at

St. Paul's

Worship with us on Sundays at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. We are currently using the setting of Setting 4 for Lent in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship book at both worship services.

Sunday School is at 9:45-10:45 am each Sunday morning for all ages, child through adult from mid-September through mid- May. 

An ELCA ​Congregation!

Due to COVID-19, St. Paul's campus has been closed for all public meetings and inside worship. We are, however, utilizing Zoom for meetings with committees and groups, such as Bible Study, Men's Weekly devotions, Council meetings, and other groups. If you need information, email Pastor Scott Anderson  or Susan Esposito.

Because the governor has allowed outdoor gatherings of up to 50 people, we have begun outdoor worship for the first 50 people who come on Sunday mornings at 10 am. We will also broadcast these services over radio channel 87.9 fm with a local transmission station if you wish to stay in your vehicle.  Holy Communion will be served during this service and will be available as drive through from approximately 11:15 am until 12:00 noon weekly as well. 

In the case of inclement weather, we will move the 50 people inside – 25 in the Sanctuary and 25 in Trinity. 

Inside there will be no singing.

We will be using Now the Feast and Celebration for the outside worship. You will be required to bring your own chair and we will guide you to distance the placement of the chairs in the back parking lot near the Memorial Garden and the mobile classroom. MASKS ARE REQUIRED.  Hand sanitizing dispensers will be available at the entrance

to the worship space.

We will continue to record setting one weekly as well.  So those who have enjoyed receiving weekly worship on our Vimeo channel can continue to do so.  
You are invited to click on this link to access our Vimeo worship services for past, present, and future. 

You may do this at any time convenient to you. 

Drive Through Holy Communion Instructions:

Please do not leave your car. Enter the parking lot from the Cornwallis Road side and circle around to the Pickett Road side. We will come to you and deliver wafers and wine or grape juice. The items will be served to you in a foam bowl. Please take the elements and distribute among those in your vehicle and then dispose of the cups and bowl when you get home.
