Wednesdays in October @ 6:00 p.m. | October 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th

We know that coming together for worship is important to you and are excited to begin offering a small and intimate outdoor worship service on Wednesdays in October at 6:00 p.m. (weather permitting). Held in the St. Paul’s Memorial Garden, we will pray together, hear scripture, and listen to music. To maintain social distancing guidelines from the Diocese and provide a safe contemplative space, these services will be limited in size, and signing up to reserve your spot is necessary. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare for this service and masks will need to be worn throughout the service. You may also watch on Facebook Live. Thank you for your flexibility as we explore outdoor worship options and the particularities of limited seating. Scroll down to view our COVID Safety Page for Outdoor Gatherings.

RSVP HERE. We encourage online RSVP, but if you cannot RSVP online, you can RSVP with Carter at 804-643-3589.
