Frequently Asked Questions
**Current COVID-19 Protocol**
Masks welcome, but are not required. Please do not attend any in-person function if you are ill, or have been exposed to someone who is ill.
What should I wear?
Whatever keeps you comfortable. Really! You won't stick out if you're wearing a dress, or a suit and tie. You also won't stick out if you're wearing a t-shirt and jeans. There is no dress code, wear what makes you feel comfortable enough to be with other people, worshipping God together.
When should I arrive?
We recommend arriving at least five to ten minutes before worship begins (9 AM). That will give you a chance to make your way inside, grab a worship bulletin, and get settled in. The ramp from the parking lot leads to the front of the sanctuary, so if you're running late, we recommend entering through the big red doors visible from route 6.
How long should I plan to spend at St. Paul?
Worship typically lasts one hour. If you have the time and want to get to know some folks, after worship you're welcome to head downstairs to the church hall to enjoy coffee, snacks, and conversation. We would love to welcome you.
Where should I park? Can I walk? Can I ride my bike?
The front of the church is visible from route 6, but the parking lot is behind the church. To access the parking lot, please turn off of route 6 onto Burnham Street. The church parking lot is up the hill to the left. The church is also easily accessed by public transportation, bicycle, or foot!
Will my young children be welcome?
Yes! The body of Christ includes everyone, that means kids, too! Church isn't church without kid noises, reminding us that they are the church of the future. Children are always welcome at St Paul.
Two bathrooms (one with a changing table) are available on the lower level of the church, off of the church hall. If your little ones are chatty or squirmy and you are uncomfortable, feel free to walk around or do what is best for you and your child. Explain what's going on to them, and if you aren't sure how to explain, ask pastor after worship! Also, activity bags are available for children. Just ask an usher.
Is the building/worship accessible to people with physical, emotional, cognitive, and/or developmental differences?
The sanctuary is accessed from the parking lot by a ramp. Unfortunately, the office building and the lower level of the church building are only accessible by stairs. This also means that, unfortunately, there are no restrooms accessible to people who cannot use stairs. If you need assistance prior to, during, or after worship, please inform an usher or pastor and we will be happy to try and accommodate your needs.
