St. Paul's is a vibrant church community; we look forward to meeting you personally. We work hard to make certain our doors are open wide, and extend a warm welcome to those who are new to us.
How do I join?
- Speak to the Rector or fill out one of our “Welcome” cards (located in the pews).
- Ask about baptism, confirmation, or inquirer’s instruction.
- Provide your baptismal certificate for our register if you were baptized in another Christian church, or have a Letter of Transfer sent from your previous Episcopal Church.
- Let us welcome you in person.
“All persons who have received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, whether in this (the Episcopal) Church or in another Christian Church, and whose baptism has been recorded in this church, are members thereof.” (Canon 17, Section 1)
If you have questions, or would like more information about becoming a member at St. Paul’s, please fill out our contact form.
Adult members of The Episcopal Church are expected to have received Confirmation – “…a mature affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the Bishop.” Those from other Christian denominations are either confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church. Confirmation instruction is offered annually. For more information, visit our Sacramental Rites page.
Stewardship encompasses our personal relationship to God and dedication to His work through the sharing of our time, talents and treasure. It is an offering of “ourselves, our souls and bodies.” Beyond the Stewardship Campaign which focuses specifically on the gift of treasure, there are many opportunities for offering your time and talents.
