St. Paul's welcomes all who seek God in community.  We challenge one another to grow in spirit and compassion.  We invite all into joyful worship, service and learning.  Christ claims us through Water, Word, and Meal so we are gathered, forgiven, fed, and sent to be workers with God and all creation in the redemption of the world.
