For non-Episcopalians, each fall we have an Inquirer’s Class which offers information about who we are as Episcopalians and how we are similar and different from other Christian denominations. This class is open to anyone, and if you choose to attend, you may then become a member of our church by participating in the sacrament of confirmation.
If you are an Episcopalian coming from another congregation you may transfer your membership by calling our parish office with your request (or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Roman Catholics and Lutherans who wish to join St. Paul’s may be received into the Episcopal Church by the Bishop during his annual visit, and are also invited to attend the Inquirer’s Class for an orientation to our faith traditions. Those coming from other denominational backgrounds are invited to be Confirmed and may prepare for this either by attending the Inquirer’s Class.
Q. If I attend St. Paul’s, am I considered a “member” for preschool registration? A. You are considered a member if you have been contributing your time, talent or treasure to St. Paul’s by December 1 prior to the year of enrollment. Making a financial contribution, taking part in one of the ministries of St. Paul’s, completing a pledge card, teaching Sunday School, or serving on a committee are all considered contributions.
Q. If I am not a member of St. Paul’s, can I participate in the sacrament of the Eucharist (Communion)? A. All baptized Christians are invited to participate in the Eucharist. Others are welcome to come forward and receive a blessing.
Q. How does my family get included in the church directory? A. All members who contribute their time, talent or treasure to St. Paul’s are included in the directory. Making a financial contribution, taking part in one of the ministries of St. Paul’s, completing a pledge card, teaching Sunday School, or serving on a committee are all considered contributions.
