Worship at St. Paul
"When the disciples saw Jesus, they worshiped him, and they doubted." --Matthew 28:17
Worship at St. Paul is about Jesus. With Jesus and his cross at the center, there is room for doubt and faith and all kinds of people. Worship, like the life of faith, is about participation, not perfection.
Sunday morning worship is relaxed and traditional. You can see it for yourself in video, live streamed and archived.
Tuesday evening worship is relaxed and intimate, with conversation about scripture instead of a formal sermon.
