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

We will have a very a special program: Hope and Help for the Holidays, Wednesday, October 26 at 6:00 p.m. in Malone Hall.  The holidays are both a special and stressful time for many and for those who have experienced a loss, it may be even more stressful. Hope and Help for the Holidays is a presentation offering resources to help individuals and loved ones plan for this special time of year.  We will explore and discuss loss and grief in the context of holidays. Some principles, guidelines, and practical suggestions will be shared.  Our presenter will be The Rev. Jim Clifford, a retired Disciples of Christ pastor and hospice chaplain, and father of Sue Ann Turnipseed and Sarah Beth Walker.  Supper and child care will be provided. If you plan to attend, please call Terri in the church office at 626-2421 by no later than noon on Monday, October 24.

HOLIDAY SHOPPE 2016:  We are asking you to consider helping with the Gala for our Holiday Shoppe 2016. You don't have to be a volunteer at the Shop.  It takes a tremendous team to pull this event off. Please consider helping this year - No Experience Necessary! If you are working the Gala, you will have to have a ticket, but this year we are offering a $5 Discount to those who work the Gala! We need folks to work the floor, to be Runners to take items back to the Hold Area, to help set up the week before, to help Judi Gulledge cook, to bake for Airrior's Sweet Shop, and to help clean up and move the items out after the event. Please consider helping! We can’t do this without good participation from our Parishioners!

Tickets are on sale for our 14th Annual Holiday Shoppe!!  The Gala will be Friday, November 18.  Tickets are $25 (this includes admission, two glasses of wine or punch, and delicious hors d'oeuvres - plus the first chance to Shop!). They will continue to be on sale after each service on Sundays and every business day at the Thrift Shop until they are gone. There will be NO tickets sold at the door this year!  Please be aware that we have sold out a couple of weeks before the event for the past few years. This year promises to be no exception.  We hope you will join us for this wonderful event!  We promise to have treasures galore! If you have questions or want to volunteer to work, please contact Jane Shoultz, 251-689-0301 or jtshoultz@gmail.com.

8th Annual St. Paul's Porkfest to be held Saturday, November 19 -- St. Paul' Men's Group is looking forward to Porkfest 2016. We will once again offer our famous slow cooked Boston Butts and Pulled Pork Dinner Plates. Please watch for members of the Men's Group who will have tickets on hand for purchase. Boston Butt Pork Shoulder Roasts average 8 pounds prior to cooking and sell for $40.00. Dinner Plates, including delicious pulled pork, cole slaw, baked beans and bread sell for $10.00. Boston Butts will be available for pick-up on Saturday November 19 from 10:00 to Noon. Pork Plates will be available from 11:00 to 2:00. All proceeds go to support ministries of St. Paul's Church. Last year's Porkfest proceeds benefitted St. Paul's Pre-School, The Exceptional Foundation, St. Paul's Upward Sports Program. Also, Porkfest proceeds were used to purchase one of the emergency cardiac devices now available in the church narthex and the Life Center.  The Men's Group has fun putting on this event each year. Thanks to all who have supported us in the past.
