First of all, WELCOME! We know that you could be doing any number of things on a Sunday morning aside from coming to church. The fact that you have made the choice to attend worship means that faith means something to you, even if you aren’t sure what.
Saint Paul’s Church strives to be a community of hospitality and welcome. Regardless of who you are, where you are from, or where you happen to be on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here. Attending a new church for the first time can be intimidating.
Here are some thoughts that might put your mind at ease:
What do I wear?
Are children welcome?
Can I receive communion?
Do I have to put money into the offering plate?
Where should I park?
We are located at the intersection of Franklin and Logan Avenues just before reaching the Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis, MN.
Saint Paul’s Church is located in a lovely residential neighborhood. There is limited, handicap-accessible street parking directly in front of the building, otherwise you are welcome to park anywhere on Logan Avenue or around the corner on Lincoln or Knox Avenues.
What is this about "Coffee Hour"?
I like what I see. How can I connect more deeply?
Worship is at the center of the life of Saint Paul’s Church. Liturgies (worship services) are held either in the nave (main church) of Saint Paul’s or in Saint Paul’s Chapel. Whether you are a lifetime Episcopalian, a Christian exploring the Episcopal tradition, an inquirer and spiritual wanderer, or somewhere in between, please know that you are always welcome to worship at Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles.
Saint Paul’s Church is deeply committed to being the hands and feet of Christ in the world, serving those whom Christ served and proclaiming the justice and compassion that reveal the Kingdom of God. The words that we recite at each baptism – the Baptismal Covenant – encourages us to “seek and serve Christ in all persons” and “strive for justice and peace among all people.” Our Faith in Action Commission helps to coordinate Saint Paul’s outreach and mission activity in our local community through ongoing partnerships and individual initiatives.
