Connect with St. Paul's
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I regret to announce that we will discontinue in-person worship for the foreseeable future beginning this Sunday, July 5. Just as we were wrapping up our work at the church for the week, Governor Abbott established a Statewide Face Covering Requirement and a Proclamation to Limit Gatherings of over ten people.
While the limit on gatherings is not a requirement issued by the Governor, it is a recommendation based on the rising number of COVID 19 Cases, the positivity rate of testing, and the limitation of space in area hospitals. The Governor also stressed, while this is not a “Stay-at-Home Order, if you can stay home you should and if you can work from home you should.” As result of these immediate actions, Paul LaRoche, Congregation President, and I decided to heed the Governor’s recommendation by discontinuing in-person worship immediately, begin making necessary arrangements to continue our worship services over the radio and on-line, and inform the congregation of this decision as quickly as possible.
The Governor also made the point that the threat of COVID 19 is real and that it is not going away without decisive and immediate action. The Governor’s warning makes this decision relatively easy. Additionally, the congregation is blessed with talented worship leaders and musicians, an extremely dedicated and talented Tech Team and the technical equipment necessary to provide a meaningful radio and on-line worship experience.
Please join us on Sundays, beginning July 5, for worship.
8:00 am Classic Liturgical Worship broadcast on KWHI AM1280 9:15 am Contemporary Worship live-streamed at stpaulsbrenham.org 10:30 am Classic Liturgical Worship live-streamed at stpaulsbrenham.org
Please help in getting the word out to your family, friends, and folks you know that do not have internet access.
Thank you and may God bless our efforts to serve.
The best way to experience St. Paul’s is to come for worship. Some things you might like to know about our worship together: there are always ushers to help you find your way, we join in communal Confession and share Communion each Sunday, we have a wonderful music ministry to help us worship, and people stop to check-in or get to know each other right after worship at the church entrance.
If you have kids, be sure to bring them to Sunday School, 9:15-10:15am every Sunday, except during summer break. They gather in the little chapel right off the main entrance before dividing by age. You are welcome to join them in class if that makes them more comfortable.
St. Paul’s offers three worship Services each Sunday: Classic Worship at 8:00am and 10:30am, and Contemporary Worship at 9:15am. Our Classic services are held in the sanctuary. The music for these services is lead by our choir and includes both piano and organ accompaniment. The Contemporary service is in the Fellowship Hall. It is a more casual, come as you are, service, with music led by the band.
St. Paul’s offers communion every Sunday, and all are welcome to partake.
