Visiting St. Paul’s
If you are looking for a meaningful worship experience or a group to which to belong or a place to raise your family, our hope is that you will find St. Paul’s to be your spiritual home. As a visitor, you probably have a few questions about what you should expect on a Sunday at St. Paul’s. You’re in the right place. You can check out the important points right here. We also encourage you to take a look at the Visitor’s Guide below. This guide provides a more detailed explanation of what you can look forward to on a Sunday, along with maps and a photo of the church. Print this out and bring it with you when you come for a visit!
Getting to St. Paul’s
St. Paul’s is located on the corner of Lincoln Ave and Main Street in Telford. Our address is 107 W Lincoln Ave, Telford, PA 18969. Parking is available next to the church as well as along Lincoln Ave. Additional parking can be found in the Telford Borough parking lot on Penn Ave, one block away from the church.
Once you Arrive
Once you arrive, you will be greeted at the door and given a bulletin. The bulletin contains the order of the worship service. Large print bulletins are available to those who need them. Take a seat in the sanctuary wherever you like!
Families with Young Children
At St. Paul’s, we welcome children of all ages as integral members of the body of Christ, and we welcome the sounds and activity that accompany them! This is why we have created a “Pray-Ground” in the front left section of our sanctuary (near the piano). This area is specifically designed for young children to quietly engage in age-appropriate activities while experiencing worship in the sanctuary along with their families.
We are also very excited to announce the opening of St. Paul’s Nursery during our 10:45 service!! The nursery is available for children ages five and younger in the Yellow Room downstairs from September - June. In addition to our regular nursery attendant, we are looking for volunteers to help in the nursery on Sunday mornings. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up below.
The service will start out with confession and forgiveness, followed by an entrance hymn and prayer. Next, we will hear the bible readings of the day, followed by the pastor’s sermon. After the sermon, we will sing a hymn and say the Apostle’s Creed. The offering will follow. There is absolutely no obligation to give, but we will always accept money to support the church’s mission. If Communion is being offered on the Sunday you visit, all who are baptized and believe that Christ is present in the sacrament are welcome to commune. On your way down the aisle, you will pick up a glass (filled with grape juice if you prefer). The pastor will give you bread, which you may eat. We have gluten-free wafers for those with special dietary considerations. Just ask the pastor when she gets to you. Next, an assistant will pour you wine. After you drink this, you may return your glass on your way back to your seat. A benediction concludes the service. You are welcome to stay and enjoy the organ postlude, as we’re very proud of our music program!
