Our Mission

The mission and purpose of St. Paul’s Church is to be the Body of Christ in this place, known by our corporate worship of God as Episcopalians, and as a community of love and openness, active in the formation, education, and nurture of Christians toward prayer, witness, and service for the doing of God’s work here and in the world.
