Our Worship Life
 
Our worship life at St. Paul’s Presbyterian is a wonderful blend of traditions.  We have members whose backgrounds come from Anglican, Lutheran, United Church and Presbyterian.  We share in the traditional liturgy of the Presbyterian church and celebrate the different colours and times of the Church year.
 
We have a laid back atmosphere where our worship of God is quite often filled with joyous laughter.  We are a team working hard to share God with the community and world at large. 
 
We have lots of children attached to the church and enjoy a vibrant children’s ministry with music, Sunday school, and special services. 
 
We have a wonderful faithful group of youth who come out and help with worship and who live their faith in the community and with our younger children.
 
Most of all we are a family.  Our mission statement is We nurture faith in the grace of Jesus Christ our Saviour through living the Word and Serving God. We do this best by being a family who loves and cares for one another.
 
We believe that “we must be the people of God before we can do the work of the people of God.”  (Dr. Stanley Ott. Vital Churches Institute)
 
 
Each November 11th we have the opportunity to co-lead with the Eckville Legion the Remembrance Day services.  This service reaches out across the boundaries of age and joins us all together in a time of learning and remembrance.  This past year was very special as we acknowledged the 100 years since WWI with candles and the tolling of the church bell.

Who We Are

Disciples of Christ Empowered by the Spirit Glorifying God and Rejoicing in Service!

What Do We Do?

Relying on the power of the Holy Spirit, we proclaim the love and good news of Jesus Christ through our words and actions. As a reformed church, we rely on the truth and inspiration of Scriptures for God’s guidance into the future—a future that we approach with wonder and anticipation, knowing God is with us. As worshipping communities joyfully celebrating the sacraments, we are supported, strengthened and equipped to share the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.

How Do We Do This?

  • Our mission, in a world where many do not know the gospel, is to tell the biblical story in ever new and creative ways.
  • Our mission, in a world wounded by sin, is to point to the redemptive work of Christ and the life-changing presence of the Spirit.
  • Our mission, in a world burdened with anxiety and apprehension, is to provide a place of sanctuary, tranquility and renewal in the name of the One who said, “I will give you rest.”
  • Our mission, in a world where many are oppressed, excluded or ignored, is to call for personal righteousness, justice and reconciliation in the Church and in the world and to hear, respect and cherish all God’s children.
  • Our mission, in a world of limited resources, is to use God’s gifts wisely and fairly for the good of all.
  • Our mission, in a world of many nations, peoples, denominations and faiths, is to learn from one another and work together for the healing of the nations.

In all times and seasons, we give glory to the God of all creation, to Jesus Christ, the Son, and to the Holy Spirit by whose presence all are blessed.
