Holy Week Schedule

Please join us for as many of our Holy Week services as you’re able. Many have found their faith profoundly deepened and their Easter Resurrection joy more complete by “walking the way of the cross” and participating in Holy Week services. 

Rise Up and Build

Rise Up and Build is our ongoing capital campaign to raise $4 million to update and restore this beautiful historic campus that God has given us. We desire to care for it well, to ensure that it is here for future generations of Jesus followers. But to maintain a campus as historic and vast as ours is costly, and we want everyone to have an opportunity to get involved and invest in the future of St. Paul’s.  Click here to read the latest Letter to the Parish from Fr. Tripp about how we hope EVERYONE will contribute to this great endeavor – not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice – as we Rise Up and Build. Read more here.

Praise & Glory Jars During Lent to Benefit the Jerusalem Fund

The Anglican Diocese of South Carolina has created a “Jerusalem Fund” to help our brothers and sisters in the diocese to get through their own difficult times. Due to the Supreme Court ruling, several churches have lost vital ministry facilities. Some have lost church buildings, fellowship halls, educational spaces, and rectories. As Lent approaches, please consider setting aside some spare change to be added to our “Praise and Glory” jars. This is a lenten tradition of alms giving. On Easter, to the glory of our Lord, we will have an ingathering of all the gifts and dedicate them toward the “Jerusalem Fund.” You may also choose to use the drop-down menu on our church’s Shelby giving menu to donate. You may want to use these “Praise and Glory” jars to help educate younger folks on the call that all Christians have to become good stewards over God’s resources. Thanks for your prayers and support of those less fortunate than St. Paul’s Summerville.

Lenten Devotional - 40 Words, 40 Days

Lent begins Wednesday, Feb. 22. St. Paul’s has written Lenten Devotionals for you and your family to use. The printed devotionals will be available for pickup beginning Feb. 19, in the backs of Doar Hall and Church Building, and in the Skardon Hall front office. The cost is $10. You can pay cash, check or by card on Shelby Giving App, Kiosk or web site.

Southeastern Intentional Grandparenting Conference - April 28-29

Mark Your Calendar for the Southeastern Intentional Grandparenting Conference to be held at St. Paul’s, April 28-29. The Southeastern Intentional Grandparenting Conference is designed to inspire and equip grandparents to pass a legacy of faith to future generations. More than thirty-million Christian grandparents live in the United States today (five million of whom live in the Southeast). Each one has an incredible potential—second only to the parents—to influence their grandchildren for Christ. Despite this potential, grandparents are one of the most underserved groups in the church. This results in a host of grandparents who feel ill-equipped to pass their faith to future generations. For more information, contact Cheryl Cargill 843-276-1427  ccargill49@gmail.com

Kenya Mission Trip - July 10-18

Mark your calendars now for a mission trip to Kenya, led by Fr. Fred, July 10-18, 2023.

Our Mission & Vision

Biblically minded – Christ centered – Holy Spirit driven

Our core values at St. Paul’s are the unwavering foundations upon which we seek to build Christ’s church.

Altar Guild - Invitation to Serve

Healthy liturgy doesn’t just happen – it depends on a hidden network of preparation by many people:  priests, musicians, lectors, acolytes, ushers and – Altar Guilds.  Altar Guild members work in teams to prepare the altar with linens, candles, silver, wine and altar hangings.  We prepare the church for the Holy Eucharist, Baptisms, Confirmations, Marriages and Funerals. St. Paul’s Altar Guild consists of teams of people who serve on a scheduled basis. You may serve on the Altar Set-up team, the Linen Care team and/or the Flower team. We are always looking for new members, both ladies and gentlemen.  If you feel called to serve in this way, it would be our privilege and delight to welcome you to a uniquely special sacramental ministry to the Lord Jesus and for His people. If you are interested in serving St. Paul’s Altar Guild/Linen Team/Flower Team or just want more information, please contact Corey Lutynski (clutynski@yahoo.com) or Nancy Harrison (nghdeh@yahoo.com).

St. Paul’s Flower Guild

We need you! Some people may never notice the flowers in our worship spaces weekly, but most would notice if they were NOT there to adorn our altars! And at this time, we need your help! No prior experience is necessary and there is no right or wrong way to participate in this vibrant ministry. We work in teams of 2 or 3 members. If there are enough participants, a team may only arrange once every two months or less. Please consider being a part of the Flower Guild, to the glory of God and St. Paul’s Summerville! If interested, please contact Beth Szostak at bethfszostak@gmail.com.

Order Easter Lilies to Honor Loved Ones

One of St. Paul’s wonderful traditions is the dedication of Easter Lilies. If you would like to dedicate a lily in honor, memory, or thanksgiving of a loved one please click here.

Solace - Quiet Prayer in Church Building every Tuesday 10:30-12:30

The Church Building will be open on Tuesdays from 10:30am-12:30pm to individuals for a time of silent prayer and seeking solace. All are welcome.

Grandparents @ Prayer - 2nd Monday of each month at 10am

St. Paul’s will be reorganizing a Grandparents at Prayer group the second Monday of each month. G@P will meet in the church building at 10 a.m.

Lillian Penner tells us “It is crucial for grandparents to unite in prayer for the hearts and minds of our grandchildren to keep them from falling captive to the enemy’s deception and lies.  We are engaged in a spiritual battle that requires the spiritual weapon of prayer.”

If you are a grandparent by blood or by circumstance, consider joining us as we come together for guided prayer and fellowship as we pray and intercede for our children, their spouses, our grandchildren and their spouses and our great-grandchildren!

Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers for our Food Pantry. Volunteers are needed Wednesday mornings 9-12 Noon, Wednesday evenings from 5:00-7:30 P.M., and Friday mornings 9-12 Noon. Email April McLean at IMFD@StPaulsSummerville.org to learn more! We also accept donations of white rice, dry pinto beans, canned ravioli, and dry pasta at any time in Skardon Hall. Thank you!

Thursday Morning Healing Service

Join us every Thursday morning in the Church Building at 11am!

St. Paul's New YouTube Channel

Each Sunday, St. Paul’s Livestreams the Doar Hall Contemporary service so you can worship with us even when you can’t be here on Sunday morning. We are happy to have a new YouTube channel for those videos!

New Here?

We hope to create an atmosphere in which everyone feels welcomed with open arms. We are always excited to have new folks join us for Sunday worship or for any gathering throughout the week. Whether you are new to the area or new to church we hope that you will come for a visit and find a spiritual home and family in St. Paul’s.
