When the St. Paul’s Church community gathers for corporate worship, we unite ourselves with others to acknowledge the holiness of God, to hear God’s Word, to offer prayer, and to celebrate the Sacraments. It’s in the Sacrament of Holy Communion that helps us to continually remember the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ until he comes again.
Who is welcome at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church for Worship?
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying babies, those who are skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or who can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up or just got out of the Campbell County jail.
We don't care if you're more Catholic than the Pope, haven't been in church since little Joey's Baptism, or since your mother forced you to come on Christmas or Easter. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, single moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, pole-dancers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery, still addicted, a tea-totaler, or someone who secretly has one too many when alone. Northern Kentucky hates heroin, but we love you. We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps or if you don't like "organized religion," we've been there too. We welcome you if you are physically or mentally far from home. We even welcome Pittsburgh Steeler fans.
If you blew all your offering money at Horseshoe Casino or Turfway Park, you're welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don't work, can't spell,
or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts ... and you!
Prayer before worship
Forgive us, O God, for prayers spoken too glibly and too easily;
for words that run from our mouths like air;
for hopes that pass like shadows over the face of life;
for gestures quickly made, but soon forgotten;
for every act of piety done with the body, but not the Spirit,
in all these things be thou the forgiveness of sins.
Un-crowd our hearts until silence speaks in a still, small voice,
and deliver us from the confusion of too much speaking until
waiting , full of hope, for the sign of thy Spirit here,
we feel a Presence we did not bring.
