Sunday worship is mostly online
A prayer for a time of confinement and canceled gatherings
we pray for all the people of the world as we face this public health crisis together. Be with those who have lost loved ones, all who fear that their weakness makes them vulnerable and all who struggle with isolation.
During this time of cancellations when we cannot worship together, during this time of confinement when we must wait, dear God, calm our fears and strengthen our hope.
We pray for all health care workers and first responders. We pray for all working in essential service jobs, delivery, janitorial, retail, groceries and pharmacies. We pray for all teachers and students, parents and children.
We pray for those whose income is interrupted and whose livelihoods are at risk.
As we wait alone in our homes remind us that we are never alone by your grace and help us as we seek to care for and support each other and those in need. Help us to hear the call to be your church in such a time as this. In your holy mercy we pray. Amen.

If you’d like a congregation with spiritual worship, compassionate outreach to the needy and intellectually engaged questions about faith, St. Paul’s could be for you. We welcome all. Our entrance and bathrooms are handicap-accessible.
Sunday Worship 9:45am (with Sunday School Oct - May)
We welcome all who are seeking God’s love and grace.
We welcome all because God welcomes all.
We encourage young children to participate and make their presence known. We are many races and cultures, different sexual orientations, gender identities and families of various configurations and single people. We come from a wide variety of places on earth and individual spiritual journeys. We are various stages of life, differing abilities and health, and economic circumstances. Our unity is in Christ who calls for us to reject division and discrimination.
In our scripture it is written: "In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus." - Galatians 3
".... When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astounded and said,
‘Then who can be saved?’ But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘For mortals
it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.’ " - Matthew 19:25-26

St. Paul’s is part of a denomination that believes women and men are equally capable of leading and serving the church in any role. We elect our leaders and Pastors and make important decisions as a group. We cooperate with the other local, regional and national Lutheran churches, a dozen in Westchester. We also join together with local faith and community leaders (see more).

We believe in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We are named for Paul, the apostle of Christ who took the message of the gospel -- that God has set us free from sin and death -- to diverse communities. In doing this he was rejecting notions of national, religious and cultural separations and preached a message of equality between sisters and brothers in Christ. He founded churches that were spiritually active, socially concerned and united across old divisions.
We are rich in history and actively engaged in today's social and ethical issues. Through it all we rejoice in our blessings and seek to be a community of faith and support.
"Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice."
- Paul's letter to the Philippians 4:4
