Summer can scatter us in all directions. But as fall approaches and families prepare for back-to-school routines, St. Paul’s also anticipates a new season together. In that spirit, all are invited to Celebration Sunday! on Sunday, August 27, where there is something for everyone. During worship at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:05 am, there will be prayers for new beginnings. Children will enjoy the tradition of Locomotion Promotion with train rides on the Plaza to signal moving up a grade in Sunday School. After the morning’s festivities, stay for lunch, starting at 11:45 am, with live music, face-painting, inflatables, and fellowship with new friends.
At Celebration Sunday!, you also will learn of fall small groups, special events, and opportunities for all ages and stages. These gatherings are offered to seek hope and healing; to learn and study scripture; to combat human trafficking; to collaborate in multicultural endeavors; to promote poetry, music, and the arts as reflections of God’s creative work in the world; to serve the community; to support the education of Houston’s young people; and to encourage one another as we encounter grace in everyday life. Newcomers are always welcome.
Senior pastor Rev. Tommy Williams says, “St. Paul’s is a community for all people, and Celebration Sunday! is a wonderful chance to either renew your faith or explore faith for the first time.”
