10:30 in the Sanctuary
About Sunday Worship
St Paul's Traditional Liturgy is on Sunday mornings at 10:30 until 11:30.
We want children to be in worship with the rest of the congregation as multiple studies have shown that faith is caught not taught, children learn through modeling more than any other method. Church is not a time-out for parents from their children, in fact it is one of the most Sacred hours a parent can spend with their children. Worshiping together teaches their child about the Sacred and Holy, how to engage with the Sacred, how to be Holy as God is Holy. Parents have the greatest influence on their child's life more than any other person across their child's life-span, modeling from a parent matters.
Sunday morning Worship includes a children's message direct from the preacher and a children's song that the whole congregation sings too. We do have a squirmy-kid zone in the Sanctuary - one near the back of the church stocked with quiet toys and activities We have a nursery where parents can see and hear the Service while the little ones play with the toys in the train toy box or color pictures, put together puzzles, and build block churches at the child size play table. The nursery also has a bassinet for the sleepy one and a changing station for the wet one, and is stocked with the basic supplies a new parent might need. Best of all there is a rocking chair for parents.
We practice cross+generational worship, fellowship, and formation where participating in a more diverse faith family models the early Christians during Paul's time, it seems to have worked pretty well.
