  Music Care Ministry

I’m grateful to share music visits via FaceTime & Skype with my residents/patients in some healthcare communities in which I regularly work, but can’t physically visit now, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We’re sharing interactive visits as residents can request their favorite songs & even sing along. The best gift is seeing their smiles & eyes light up with surprise! Let’s stay connected – message Susan Carol if you’d like a virtual harp visit. I hope to offer some peace & joy in this extraordinary time. Thank you, Joshua Cruse, for helping test the process (he’s in the photos below). This is my lovely Dusty Strings Cherry FH-36S harp!

Welcome to St. Paul’s

It is a joy and blessing to welcome you to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church!

At St. Paul’s you will find a community of faithful people striving to live out, and live into, the dream which God has for each of us individually and as a community. You will begin by worshiping in one of the most beautiful sanctuaries you may ever see.  You will experience the Good News of God proclaimed and celebrated through deeply affecting worship and joyous music. And most importantly, you will be warmly welcomed into a community that truly cares about you.

We welcome you with open arms to join us as we discern the call to ministry and mission to which the Holy Spirit continues to invite us. You are welcome to bring your questions and concerns, your hopes and your dreams to this holy place of faith, forgiveness, reconciliation and outreach. 

It is our prayer that you will add your voice, your spiritual gifts and your heart to this community of faith.  There is much going on at St. Paul’s, please visit the following pages to see what is happening here. Your presence among us will help us live more fully into the faith that Christ calls us toward.

Peace and Blessings,

Diane+, Todd+, Bill+, Sumner
