All are welcome. Our weekly Sunday services at St. Paul UCC are “beyond belief,” focusing on bringing people closer to God as a community of God.
We have two services, one with a more traditional bent (9 a.m.) and the other (10:30 a.m.) more contemporary. Each service lasts approximately one hour and includes scripture reading, a sermon, songs and prayer. Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month and also at many of our special services throughout the year.
Come as you are. Many regular worship attendees look forward to dressing their best on Sunday mornings, but many also attend wearing jeans or other casual clothes. No matter what you want to wear, you are welcome.
Parking is not a problem. We have a large lot at the administrative entry to the church between Market (Illinois Route 3) and Main streets. In addition, we have other lots across from the church on First Street and on Market Street. The surrounding streets also offer ample parking opportunities.
We are accessible. Our large parking lot at the administrative entryway has multiple handicapped parking spots, as do First and Main streets. All entrances to the main church building are accessible. Once inside, the sanctuary is on the main floor and we have an elevator at the administrative entrance that can take you downstairs if needed.
We love kids. They are always welcome in worship. However, if desired, nursery care is available during the 9 a.m. service for children up to two years old. Also, various Sunday School options exist for children aged three through high school at both services.
