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

Great Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:00 p.m. in Malone Hall
--Thack will continue the teaching series on “Christian Atheism.” So, what is a Christian Atheist? The words almost contradict each other, right? How can someone be a Christian and an Atheist? But if you think about it, a lot of us are Christian Atheists because we believe in God but live as if He doesn't exist. The reality is we can say we believe in God, but if we’re not reading God’s word in Scripture, praying daily, regularly attending church, or serving God and others in some capacity, we may very well be living as a Christian Atheist. If you think you fall into this category, please consider attending the remaining three sessions. Supper is potluck and child care will be provided. Please bring a friend and a favorite dish to share and come prepared to be stretched. The Great Wednesday program will be offered in Malone Hall.

Adult Sunday School Series -- Thack is facilitating a Sunday School Class entitled, “Dare to Dream, Creating a God-Sized Mission Statement for your Life.”  God has created all of us for a purpose.  Sometimes, people spend their entire lives trying to discover that purpose, but to no avail.  Over the next 5 Sundays, we will discuss the following topics: Dreaming the dream;  Discovering your birth right; What is your burning bush?; Lose your big “buts”; What is in your hand?; and Perseverance.  The class will be held in Malone Hall, and will begin at 9:15 a.m.

A Big Event in March
- I'm really excited to invite you to a very special Lenten retreat. It will take place on Fridays & Saturdays, March 4 & 5 and March 11 & 12. - Fridays from 4-10 and Saturdays from 9-4. Thack and I will take us all through the Bach St. Matthew Passion one more time. This one will be full of new material with super DVD's filmed on location in all the place related to Bach's life and work, and new material I've learned about Bach's theology, which makes this wonderful music and text more relevant to us today than I knew before. How far will you have to travel to attend? All the way to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Daphne! We'll use Malone Hall for our headquarters for our study and for our German meals. I promise a rich, full experience all around. Promise! Pick up a brochure in the narthex or here on our website under FORMS and Miscellaneous,  and pore over it and see if this is for you. We're especially inviting Episcopalians and Lutherans from east Mississippi, south Alabama and west Florida....and anyone else who'd benefit from the retreat.  Thank you, Paul Anderson
