Summer schedule being used at St. Paul's

St.Paul’s Episcopal Church is following a modified schedule for the summer.

The altered scheduled – which is for  single Sunday service at 10 a.m. – began June 2. A variety of liturgical resources will be used for worship in the summer. In addition to the usual liturgy, the congregation will also sample more contemporary services from “Enriching Our Worship” and the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer.

There also will be variety in music. Traditional hymns will be joined with gospel hymns, spirituals and simple chants from the Taize and Iona communities in France and Scotland. Guest organists, pianists and at least one singer/guitarist will help lead music.

A committee is working with Allen Sandlin, the rector, to plan music for those services. Serving on the committee are Olivia Brown, Mark Bulford, Brian Hinkemeyer, Terry Hinkemeyer, Mark and Mary Frances Honea, Beth Marchman and Steve Moran.

Each service will be followed by social time with lemonade and coffee, outside on the lawn when weather permits, but otherwise in the narthex.

During the summer, Rebekah Bokros Hatch, who visited St. Paul’s last winter, will preach while the rector is away. Bishop Keith B. Whitmore will be at St. Paul’s on June 30 for the Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul.

Whitmore will confirm both youth and adults and will join the congregation for a potluck brunch after worship.
