St. Paul’s United Church of Christ is a Progressive Open and Affirming Congregation where God is Still Speaking. Here, we seek to receive with respect and nurture with intention the gifts of all who come to us on their journey of faith. In all things, we celebrate the richness of God’s diverse creation as we actively make the world a better place.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE PASTOR…PLEASE READ!
Monday, March 30, 2020
Although St. Paul’s has canceled all church-sponsored public gatherings for the time being, we continue to make our way through this challenging time that requires maintaining social distance and we remain connected in our ongoing commitment to being a CHURCH THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
WE WILL GATHER AGAIN NEXT SUNDAY, APRIL 5, AT 10:00AM USING THE SAME ZOOM SIGN-IN INFORMATION AS BEFORE…SEE BELOW.
The “SUNDAY GATHERING” will be a hybrid worship service and Seekers-like session. If all goes as now planned, it will include a centering time with music from Jo, a scripture reading, the framing of a “big” question and subsequent conversation, a time of prayer, some more music, and a closing/benediction. And at this point the plan is to host that and broadcast it from the chancel near the Sanctuary altar.
This online offering is designed to address a couple of needs: first, to provide a way for us to be in worship together, and second, to make it so that we can connect with each other socially and spiritually. If we can make the technology work, the Gathering will also be simultaneously streamed on Facebook Live and eventually posted on our YouTube channel.
Below is the information and live link you will need to join the Zoom video conference:

And there is this from Andrea — who continues to be enormously helpful in making this Zoom connection happen: “I couldn’t find a one-page FAQ, but I would ask everyone to watch the video at this page:
You will find a mute button on your screen and you can click that on or off as needed or desired throughout the meeting. Every participant will be automatically muted upon entering the conference.
Once we all get into the conference at 10am, we will figure out how to do this together.
