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
