Welcome to Saint Paul's!

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?
Great question! Our community is diverse. On any given Sunday we have older folks dressed in their “Sunday Best” or folks who have stopped in on the way to a sports game or an afternoon of running errands. We invite you to dress whichever you feel is comfortable and appropriate.
Are children welcome?
Absolutely! At Saint Paul’s we believe the worship of our community is strengthened when we all worship together – children included. We understand this makes some parents nervous, so we provide both nursery care (for our youngest children) and worship bags (for our slightly older children). Please know that we welcome the noises of children as a part of our community’s joyful noise!
Can I receive communion?
You need not be a baptized Episcopalian to receive communion at Saint Paul’s. While baptism (in any Christian tradition – Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Baptist, etc.) before receiving communion is the rule, Saint Paul’s Church takes a soft approach to its application. No one will ask you if you are baptized before you receive. If you are not yet baptized and want to consider deepening your relationship with God this way, you are invited to speak to the priest. We would love to formally welcome you into the Body of Christ. As a matter of hospitality and unity, ALL of our bread at Saint Paul’s Church is gluten-free.
Do I have to put money into the offering plate?
Giving is always a voluntary act – always a response to God’s goodness towards us. As a visitor there is no expectation that you will put anything in the offering plate. You are welcome to let it pass you by. If you are a frequent visitor or member, we strongly encourage you to consider giving to support the mission and ministry of Saint Paul’s Church as part of your spiritual practice of generosity. You can find out how you can give to Saint Paul’s by visiting our GIVE page.
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"?
Consider this your invitation to join us! Immediately after 10:00 am Holy Eucharist, please consider joining us for Coffee Hour in the Neighborhood House. This is where we catch up with our friends, make new ones, find out what is happening at Saint Paul’s Church and in our community, and find out how we can partner with God’s mission in our neighborhood. Saint Paul’s loves to show hospitality, and we’d be honored if you’d join us.
I like what I see. How can I connect more deeply?
We are always happy to have you visit with us, but if you want to take the next step to deepen your relationship with God, explore the depths of your own spirituality, and connect with Saint Paul’s Church, we’d love to have you as a part of our parish family. Membership at Saint Paul’s Church is more than just your name on the church attendance roll – it is a way of life. As a member, you are saying that there is something here that feeds you spiritually and encourages you to serve the world in Christ’s name. Our job as a church is to make sure you have everything you need to live your faith boldly and compassionately. If you like what you see, and you want to worship, grow, and serve here, you can contact the priest about membership. You can also be on the lookout for newcomer gatherings and Discipleship classes.

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.
