St. Paul's Church in Woodside, reflects the multi-ethnic neighborhood in which it is located. Therefore, the Ministry of our church is an eclectic one. Not only is our 'home' congregation comprised of such diversity, but so are the several ecumencial congregations that call our premises their house of worship.
Among the other congegrations that worship at St. Paul's are:
The New York Presbyterian Church (Korean)
Greja Bethany Indonesia
Yeshua Adonai Bible International Church (Filipino)
We are grateful to be able to fellowship with people from many different nations and languages, and expand the Ministry of the Universal Church.
Sunday School/Youth & Young Adults
The church's resolve is in providing young persons a means to grow in their spiritual life and faith in God. This includes assisting and encouraging creative, imaginative, and dynamic expressions of talent, worship, and ultimately discipleship with Christ.
There are special times during the year, such as Youth Sunday, Easter, Christmas, when individual gifts and abilities are presented by means of musical recitals, poetry, drama/skits, song, dance, and art.
St. Paul's Sunday School/Youth & Young Adults are involved and fully participate in the church community as Acolytes, Choir, and Readers, etc.
"The Episcopal Church strives to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world."
Parish Life at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Woodside...
It all flows from our love and worship of God in Jesus Christ, and our neighbors...
We consider the Bible to be divinely inspired, and hold the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion), the Lord’s Supper to be the central act of Christian worship. The Episcopal Church grants great latitude in the interpretation of doctrine of the church and uses the Book of Common Prayer for public worship.
