We hope your visit to this website helps you better understand St. Paul's, and the Episcopal church. We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you individually -- in person or by phone -- to answer any questions you may have about the life and worship practices of this church.
Nationally recognized for its contemporary architecture, St. Paul's is a local landmark along Peoria's War Memorial Drive. Our liturgy is traditional and comforting. It is the perfect middle, some would say, between Catholic and mainline Protestant worship. Our congregation is diverse, devoted to our faith and proud of our 100 plus year history in Peoria.
When this church says "all are welcome" we mean it. So please accept our invitation to visit us on Sunday. We have multiple worship times to accommodate busy schedules.
"The mission of St. Paul's is to nurture, love, teach, and grow a loving community in Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others."
Beginning September 14:
Rector’s Corner: Gearing Up for Fall
It is hard to believe that our beautiful summer is beginning to wind down. Even in these lazy days of summer we at St. Paul’s have been far from idle.
Now that fall is just a few weeks away we are planning our 2014-2015 program for Christian Formation. This is the new term we are using for the educational opportunities we are offering to all ages at St. Paul’s. On Sept. 7th we resume our fall schedule with Sunday services at 8:00 and 10:30 AM and 5:30 PM. On this day we will have a parish wide celebration between the two services to kick off our program year with food, music and fun for all.
The Christian Formation hour will be 9:15 am to 10:15 am, beginning on Sept. 14th. The programs include Godly Play for ages 3 to 10; Middler Sunday School for ages 11 to 14. The adults are invited to gather in the Hedberg Room for an Adult Forum to explore and engage in a new Bible Study Program. We will also host several guest presenters from the Diocese of Chicago. Nursery will be provided during the services and class time. Children’s Chapel will be held the last Sunday of the month.
More detailed information will follow as we fine tune our planning and prayerfully discern how best to fulfill our mission to nurture, love, teach and grow a loving community in Jesus Christ. Plan to come and discover new ways of being community, sharing our gifts and developing lasting relationships with each other and with God that bring meaning and purpose to our lives.
