The season of Advent is a time to prepare our hearts and lives for Christ. We read of the hope of God’s people for a Savior, we anticipate the celebration of Christmas, and we look for Christ’s coming again to renew our broken and beautiful world. Join us this Sunday as Advent continues and we read about God’s promise of restoration to people trapped in despair. Sunday School begins at 9am, and worship with Holy Communion begins at 10am. Welcome in the name of Jesus, the one who was, who is, and who is coming again to heal and bless!
Christmas at St. Paul’s
We invite you to join us for the celebration of Christ’s birth on Christmas Eve – Sunday, December 24, 2017, at 7:00pm. Our service that evening will feature special music from the St. Paul’s Choir, our Youth Christmas Program, Holy Communion, and a beloved tradition at St. Paul’s: the Candlelight Cross. The people of St. Paul’s hope to see you on Christmas Eve!
Narrative Lectionary Daily Readings
The Narrative Lectionary focuses our congregation on one Scripture reading each Sunday. Below are some suggested readings to make connections between this past Sunday’s and next Sunday’s texts or to examine related stories in Scripture (from the fine folks at www.clergystuff.com).
