Ministry Description This profile has been updated. We are an “Open and Affirming” congregation. We believe that “God is still speaking” and that no matter who we are, or where we are on life’s journey, all are welcome here. At St. Paul’s we are seekers, believers, and doubters with a breadth of theological beliefs. We are of different ages, sexual orientations, and abilities. We deeply value our diversity. As a mostly white congregation, we seek to listen to voices of racial justice. Here, people are not told what to believe or asked to change but given a space where growing their faith is possible. St Paul's is an emotionally healthy congregation that can communicate effectively. We have minimal conflicts and resolve them quickly and effectively when they emerge. There is a tremendous sense of community at St. Paul’s, especially given the small size of the congregation. We have an informal approach to all aspects of church life, where formality comes secondary to our relationships. This may be related to the quality of our prayer time during worship: it is honest. We value people’s stories – true and complex – and we make ourselves vulnerable in worship together. It makes our worship and community life faithful and vital. We also enjoy being a teaching church, having hosted six interns over the last five years. We have benefited tremendously from their different perspectives and approaches to faith life. We have a passion for social justice. Our worship service contains voices of social justice, providing the congregation with messages to reflect on. We host a self-managed shelter 24/7 in our Fellowship Hall. By far, the greatest number of people in our building are members of Twelve-Step Recovery. Before the pandemic, our building was in heavy use 7 days a week, hosting about 1,500 people in recovery groups of every kind and many of our members have strong connections to various recovery groups.
