When you walk through the main doors of our church, you are greeted with the words of our rally cry, Come In, Grow in Christ, Reach Out, beautifully calligraphied around a tree of life. Several years ago we adopted the symbol of the tree of Christian practices as a visual focus and guide for the mission and ministry of St. Paul’s.
We are a community grounded in our triune God. We believe that everything we do is worship, and this is the trunk of the tree that supports the branches of hospitality (Come In), reflection (Grow in Christ), and social justice/mission (Reach Out). Healing is an integral part of each one of these branches and the Holy Spirit is the sap or life force that flows through us, keeping us alive and growing. This is who we believe we are.
For over 150 years, St. Paul’s has been welcoming people through its doors. Beautifully located on the north bank of the Mississippi River, it is a perfect place to come and sit a spell, inside or out. All are welcome in this place.
