When you visit us, you will be our respected guest. We will not single you out in an embarrassing way; you may worship God in solitude or engage us with conversation or questions.

First Fridays @ St. Paul's

Downtown Lynchburg’s First Fridays!
Join us this Friday, February 3, as we host one of the ‘gallery openings’ for First Fridays.
The Bicentennial Art Exhibit will be open to the general public for viewing from 5 – 7pm. The Church, a piece of art in its own right, will also be open for our community to experience the beauty we see every week.
As do so many things, art reveals something new each time the viewer sees it; so, come and see the exhibits with their ‘new’ eyes; and help us host our guests.
The exhibit will be open on Friday, February 3, 5 – 7pm. Use the front doors of the church (Clay Street) for entry.

The Bicentennial Organ

For 200 years, St. Paul’s has been at the forefront of including innovative liturgical music to the worship and praise of God. Since the installation of the first organ in 1826, St. Paul’s has held an important place in the musical community of Lynchburg. 
St. Paul’s continues this tradition of excellence in church music and now looks toward the future. As a part of this forward view we have embarked on a campaign to replace our current, and now ailing, instrument. We have purchased an instrument built by Casavant Frères, a venerable Canadian organ building firm based in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, that is being renewed and re-engineered for St. Paul’s by Parsons Organ Builders of Canadaigua, NY. The Parsons/Casavant will serve St. Paul’s for many years to come.
The music made by St. Paul’s musicians reaches into the soul in ways that words do not, and has drawn people into St. Paul’s to experience the beauty of sound and place. Please take a moment and consider a gift towards this project, a project that continues the 200-year history of excellence of music at St. Paul’s.
Please join us in our effort to “Pay it Forward.”
