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 Service:  Due to the Diocesan Convention being held the third week in February, our next Taize contemplative prayer service is on Thursday, February 25. Paul will show the DVD from Taize at 6:30 in the choir room for all who have never seen what it's like at the community in Taize, France, and then at 7 we'll move into the narthex for prayer. You are all welcome, come as you are for a time of quiet prayer and silent prayer. We know prayer works- here's another chance to send the power of our prayer to God.
