Welcome to the St. Paul’s, Brunswick, Maine Website!
GOD IS LOVE
The most important piece of information you will get from our community of faith is this, “God is love; he who dwells in love is dwelling in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4.16) In a world that can sometimes be judgmental and harsh, the most important thing I want people to remember about Christianity is this passage of scripture: “God is love.” Our goal at St. Paul’s Church is to be a parish that dwells in God’s love, loving each other and our neighbor.
LOVE IN ACTION
We put that love into action by opening our doors to everyone who wishes to enter. We put that love into action by our joy-filled and reverent Sunday worship that engages all ages. We put that love into action by following God’s call into our neighborhood helping with housing, sharing food, raising awareness of domestic violence, learning about Restorative Justice, making window inserts to decrease energy use, offering 12-Step meetings and presenting community forums.
On this website you will find resources to help you deal with questions and doubts regarding faith. You will find ministries that share in helping those in need. Follow the link to our calendar where you will find the group and time that is the best fit for you. Wherever you are in life’s journey, St. Paul’s has something to help you – and you have something to help St. Paul’s, by letting us share in your journey.
FORMING DISCIPLES IN LOVE
I invite you to click on the Worship page and listen to some of our sermons. The sermons are generally based on the Sunday lessons and connect to the challenges and joys of modern day living. If you are a parent with young children, or someone simply seeking a non-traditional church experience, I invite you to share in the joy of 9:30 a.m. Sunday family worship.
We believe that following the teachings of Jesus is central to growing in faith. There are many ways in which we help each other follow Jesus. I invite you to check out our Christian formation classes under “Forming Christians.” We offer something for all ages. If you want to know more about the history of Christianity and how the Episcopal Church came to be, check out the page on history of Christianity under “About Us.”
The spirit of St. Paul’s is vibrant, joyous and loving. I am pleased to invite you to experience the love and mercy of God with the people of St. Paul’s.
Your friend in Christ,
The Rev. Carolyn H. Eklund, Rector
