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
Mother's Day Offering for the Life Center
In case you weren't present in church when the announcements were
made, Airrior Norwood came up with a wonderful suggestion of making a Mother's
Day offering to the Life Center in honor, memory or thanksgiving of our
mothers. Offering boxes are available in the narthex of the church. The hope is
to get all parishioners, especially those who weren't at St. Paul's when we
raised funds to build the Life Center, to participate in reducing the
indebtedness on this wonderful part of our ministry at St. Paul's. We will
gather and bless these offerings on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14 at both services.
In addition to your offerings, Airrior has requested that you put a personal
note in your box that reads: "I make this offering in memory (or
thanksgiving or honor) of my mother for: ______________________."
Airrior's note will read, "I make this gift in thanksgiving for my
mother's optimistic spirit." We will take these notes and compile them in
a commemorative display that will be set up in Malone Hall.
New Adult Sunday School Program
The Ten Commandments and Jesus' summary of the law were at one
time near the very center of our culture and civilization. They teach us how we
should act in our relationship with God and how to live as individuals and as a
community. They were learned by heart and often repeated in public worship.
They were inscribed in public places and often displayed in the home. For
centuries, they were at the center of what Christians learned about their
faith. Yet today they are little known and understood, let alone followed.
Beginning May 7, we will study the Decalogue for four Sundays and learn again
their importance to us as Christians. The classes will be held in Malone Hall
at 9:20 a.m.
Please let us
know if you have a graduate that you would like to honor on May 14th
during our services. Send a name and picture to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30th and we will
honor your graduate with a decorative sign for our campus!
St. Paul's Spring Picnic
Our Spring Picnic will be held at 5 Rivers Park on May 7th
following the 10:30 a.m. service. Our St. Paul's Men's Group will be
grilling burgers and hotdogs. Bring your own lawn chairs, a side dish,
and anything else you'd like to share. A sign up sheet is now available
in the narthex. Please sign up so we will know how many to plan for. 5
Rivers is located on the Causeway at 30945 5 Rivers Blvd, Spanish Fort.
Take a left at the gate and drive through to the back. A jumpy will
