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.

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.

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.
