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.

Space Still Available at Cursillo this Summer
Cursillo is a powerful retreat weekend that blesses participants with wonderful fellowship, sound teachings, beautiful worship, and healing ministry. Cursillo’s spiritual blessings continue long after the weekend is over! Cursillo is designed to renew the hearts of the faithful, and form strong Christian leaders for Kingdom service in the local church. If you are looking for a powerful, life-changing weekend, our next Cursillo is Cursillo #192, July 13-16, 2023. St. Paul’s is blessed to have our own Jim Gonnella as the next Weekend Rector (lay leader). There are still spaces available for the July dates!

Grief Share New Group Begins May 3
A new Grief Share support group will begin at St. Paul’s May 3 – July 26, 6:30pm in the Library of Skardon Hall. A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way. Please register by emailing Heather Kilpatrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 (email@example.com) or Nancy Harrison (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 email@example.com.
The Clothing Closet is accepting donations of spring and summer clothing only, please. We also need bath towels. Please bring to Skardon Hall. Thank you!
Historic Churchyard Restoration & Preservation
Pick Your Day, Pick Your Hours, Pick Your Spot! We need volunteers to help do yard work to clean up and maintain our beautiful historic Churchyard. If you can donate a few hours, we need you! Email Fr. John to sign up!
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!
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.
The perfect way to grow into our church family.
St. Paul’s CLC serves children ages 18 months to age 5.
