Welcome to St. Pauls Episcopal Church

St Paul's Episcopal Church is a warm and loving community of approximately 800 baptized members. Located on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, it is situated in one of the most scenic and fastest growing counties in Alabama.

In this place we try to follow the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ, not so much by speculating "What would Jesus do?," but rather attempting to emulate what Jesus did do. This theology for ministry is captured in our Mission Statement: "We worship together as we seek God, serve God, and share God with love and acceptance for all."

You are cordially invited to join us in worship. It is my prayer that you will find your time with us a blessing.

God bless you,

Thack Dyson, Rector

Taize Contemplative Prayer & a Special Concert 

For those of you who are regulars at 10:30, you have watched Adam Meshejian grow up as a server. I invite you to join us next Thursday evening, May 21, in the church narthex to see Adam in his emerging role as a tenor soloist. We will have contemplative Taize prayer at 7:00, followed by a brief intermission during which we shall reset the narthex. Then at 8:00, Adam and I will give a program which highlights his growth as a tenor. That will be followed by a little reception offered by the Parish Choir. We'll do some beautiful music by Purcell, Handel, Bach, Bononcini, Brahms, John Jacob Niles, Debussy, Aaron Copland and Simon & Garfunkel. All this to celebrate where Adam is now in his study, as he moved from Faulkner to the U. of Southern MS. in Hattiesburg this fall.
