Parish Life

Community is at the heart of what the Christian life is about. Through worship together, mission, working for justice and peace, evangelism, and education, we are nurtured, enlivened, sustained, and formed. The Bible’s original word for “church” is ekklesia, Greek for “assembly” or “gathering.” Viewed this way, the Christian community is simply those who love Jesus and live in fellowship with each other.

At St. Paul’s, we come from different backgrounds and experiences, but we come together because we’ve found things that are important to us – real relationships and a caring community.

And many of us have found others who want to continue learning about our faith to answer the great questions of life, the nature of God and spirituality, the Bible and its mysteries, and of Jesus Christ. This time with people of like mind encourages us in our faith and makes us realize that we are not alone – whether we’re facing struggles or experiencing joys.
