St. Paul's Episcopal Church
Children's Ministry is an active and fun program that builds on the children's knowledge and love of God. We start with a Children's Sermon, where all children are invited to listen to a short object lesson or story. Then the children follow the teacher to the Parish Hall for learning activities, and rejoin the congregation in the Church for Holy Eucharist.
The St. Paul's Prayer Chain is committed to praying with you for your needs, and rejoicing with you when prayers are answered. We believe in the power of prayer to heal, console, guide and support us. To request prayers, or to join the Prayer Chain, please contact Meaghan Keegan at 518-590-6130 or Sherry Pruiksma at 518-692-9055. Intercessory prayer is also available during Holy Communion at the back of the sanctuary.
Visitations to Shut-Ins - Providing pastoral care for the sick and shut-in of the church, through regular visitation and participation in the sacrament of Holy Communion, is an important part of the ministry of St. Paul's. In Matthew 25 Jesus emphasizes the importance of taking care of those who are unable to participate fully in the community. To request a visit please contact Meaghan Keegan at 518-590-6130.
