For many, a worship service is the first step on the pathway of faith. Maybe you’ve been attending St. Paul’s for two weeks, or maybe ten years. Maybe you’ve already tried a few things, or maybe you’ve just come each week and worshiped quietly.

We believe that life is richer, more joy-filled, and more meaningful when you become actively involved in the life of the church. The best way to connect with others, grow in your faith, and make a difference in the world is in the environment of authentic community.

Take the Next Step on Your Pathway of Faith

If you’re just getting started, we suggest participating in our Membership Class. This course, held on four consecutive Sundays, will orient you to the Christian faith and St. Paul’s, in light of our unique United Methodist heritage. You may also want to attend one of our weekly Adult Sunday School classes.

If you’re looking for an overview of the Christian faith or answers to your faith questions, sign up for the Alpha Course. Alpha is a place where any and all questions are welcomed – no question is too simple or too controversial. Alpha is for everyone, whether you’re just beginning to explore Christianity or you’ve been a Christian for years.

Commit to Group Life

At St. Paul’s, we know one of the most effective ways to nurture your growing relationship with Jesus Christ is to belong to a small group of Christian friends who encourage, challenge, and support you as you discern and live out your life mission. We’ll help you find a group best suited for you based on where you live, your interests, or your life situation. Our Small Group Connector lists a variety of groups – we’re positive there’s one that will be a great place for you to belong, grow, and serve.
