Welcome to St. Paul’s!

Are you new, newish, or returning to St. Paul’s? Join us for our first Welcome Gathering of the year. Over a light lunch, Rev. Charlie will share a bit about the spiritual life of St. Paul’s and the Episcopal Church and conclude with a tour of the St. Paul’s Parish House and Church. RSVP is not required but encouraged in order to plan for food. If you plan to attend or if you need childcare, you can let us know by signing up on the info table in the Gathering Space, emailing Sarah Nolan at snolan@stpaulsrva.org or calling the church office to reserve a spot. We’re looking forward to getting to know you!

PS – Save the date for other upcoming gatherings on March 1st, April 5th and May 3rd.

Whatever brings you to St. Paul’s, and whoever you are, we are glad you are here. We welcome all, regardless of age, culture, physical health and ability, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.

You are invited to wear whatever feels comfortable to you and are welcome to sit anywhere in the sanctuary. Standing, sitting or kneeling for various parts of the service is a matter only of custom, and you should feel free to assume whatever posture is most helpful to you as you open your heart, mind and senses to the experience of worship.

If you have special needs (for example, you need communion brought to you), simply let an usher know. All of our communion wafers are gluten-free as of Spring 2019 to make worship a more accessible experience for those with dietary restrictions.

Children are welcome to attend all our services; child care for infants and toddlers (in the nursery) and Sunday School (in the Children’s Center) are also available.

If you’d like to talk with a member of our Vestry, please check out this webpage or, on Sunday mornings, refer to the back of the bulletin for their names. Vestry members and ushers are great folks to bring your questions to, whether in person or by shooting them an email!

So come. Sit awhile. Join us for an an Evensong or evening service, Emmaus Lunch, any number of upcoming events, or just plain old Sunday worship. However you got here, we’re glad you did.
