Come, the door is open....
St. Paul's reaches out to share the Light of Christ. Our hands are open to help and our hearts open to love. We are an inter-generational church working to make a difference through compassion as we share God's love and grace with our community.
Collect for Palm Sunday
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, in your temder love for the human race you sent your Son our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of his suffering, and also share in his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Pray for Peace
All glory, laud and honor, To thee, Redeemer, King.
To Whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.
