Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” We enjoy gathering together at St. Paul’s! And when we gather, there is usually food involved! Regularly scheduled lunch groups, supper clubs, parish dinner events and musical concerts allow our parishioners to form close relationships with one another. Interest groups meet during the week to play bridge or to discuss the latest best seller.
On Sundays, many people follow worship with a cup of coffee and a visit to the donut table. St. Paul’s parishioners are always looking for ways to get together! Young or young at heart, there something or someone to connect to at St. Paul’s.
