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

Announcements 

Christmas Pageant Practice:

Pageant Practice has been moved to Sunday Afternoons from 4:30-5:30 in between Junior High Youth and Senior High Youth group meetings. Kids choir practice will still be held at 5:00 on Wednesday evenings with Paul in the choir room. I hope this will accommodate more of you to make it to practices! We will have dress rehearsal on Wednesday the 21st at 5:00 for all ages, and this is the practice for even the little ones if they would like to attend. 

 

Great Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. – Malone Hall

Thack will continue to teach the Advent program being offered throughout the Advent season.

A meal will be provided this week, December 14.  We will meet in Malone Hall as usual.

Please RSVP to Terri or Joan, 251-626-2421  

 

Christmas Eve Service Pageant Drop Off:

If your little one will be participating in the Christmas Pageant, we will be allowing drop off in Malone Hall at 5:45 pm Christmas Eve. We will get them costumed and will have activities for them to do while they wait for their piece in the pageant. When the pageant is over (at the peace) you may find your child at the altar and bring them out into the nave to return their costume and receive a little participation “happy”! Then they are done, but don’t go anywhere because at the end of the service we will wheel out a giant birthday cake for Jesus and the kids will lead us in singing Happy Birthday! You don’t want to miss this sweet tradition!  Cake to follow in Malone Hall. 

 

Christmas Eve Service Nursery Workers:

We still need nursery workers for our Christmas Eve Service from 5:30-7:30. If you would like to volunteer in the nursery please contact me soon!

 

Christmas Pageant Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer to help with the kids before the pageant and getting them into the church at their time please let me know, we could really use your help!

 

Have you seen our Advent Table??

Also, check out our Advent table in the Narthex for special booklets for all ages! We have adult, family, teen, and children’s devotions, and an awesome 3D Christmas book for the little ones!
