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 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

 NEW Church Directory -- We are currently in the process of publishing an on-line pictorial directory.  This directory will be linked in with our website and will be available to St. Paul's members. We will be working on publishing the directory in the Parish office.  Hopefully with your help it will go smoothly, but please be patient-it will take some time.  We will be  taking photographs for several weeks on Sunday mornings. Please see one of our photographers, Bill Cody, Dave Hale, and Michael Quinn.  It is very important that you fill out a Family Information Form which will be available for you -- ONE FOR EACH MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY.   This is the information that will go in the directory with the exception of birthday and anniversary  year. The year is for office information only. If we do not have the form your information can not be published.  Thank you for your help—Terri McMillan
