St. Paul's at the Movies: The Boys in the Boat

“There is no ‘I’ in ‘TEAM,’” we often hear spoken to one another. What is it, though, that makes for a team? When the odds seem stacked against the team, how do they rise to the top? Don’t forget to invite a friend to a local theater to watch The Boys in the Boat and then have them join you in worship as we talk about the story as well as a more ancient story of what happens when the people of God, with all of our diverse gifts, come together. How might God be bringing us together in our world today?

Rev. Elbert Dulworth

Vesper Service Thursday

Thursday at 7 p.m. on Facebook

Unwind, relax, reflect, and connect with God.

Hearing God's Questions

You look to God for answers, but sometimes, God offers questions, not answers. What questions might God have for you? By simply considering God’s questions, you can have a deeper, richer spiritual life. Answers are helpful, but to get there, one must start with the questions. Tune in to consider how to listen to God in this way.  Vespers at
