Paul's Episcopal Church
New Sunday Schedule as of July 7 - The Vestry has voted to adopt a new Sunday schedule with the 8 service staying the same and the 10 service moving to 9:30. More details of how this will streamline our Sunday mornings to accommodate those from either service who participate in church school, choir or adult forum are found on the hand-out available at both entrances. Please see the Rector or any Vestry member (indicated by wearing a nametag or as pictured on the "Welcome" bulletin board by the stairway and elevator) with questions, comments and ideas.
