New at St. Paul’s: a Toddler Room!

St. Paul’s now offers nursery care for our littlest ones during the 10:00 service on Sundays in our brand new Toddler Room, located right on the stage of Paxson Hall.

Parents of children ages 6 months to 3 years can feel free to drop them off starting at 9:30am. Our Toddler Room is very kid-friendly, with toys, books, and even a crib for those needing a nap.

Parents should feel free to make use of it as needed, whether for the whole service or until Communion. Children of all ages are always welcome in church—and so our Toddler Room is simply an option, not a requirement.

As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me…”


November 26th is “Name Tag” Sunday

Please pick up a name tag on your way in to church. We will continue Name Tag Sunday for the next few weeks to welcome Father Daniel and to help him get to know us better.
