St. Paul’s is a multi-generational community committed to serving the people of Lexington and the surrounding area. We invite people of all ages to participate in the many activities we have throughout the year.
Sunday Catechesis (i.e., Sunday School)
We have adult and children study hour at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the undercroft of the church. The Bible reminds us that, as followers of Christ, we are to move beyond the ‘milk’ of elementary teachings to the ‘solid food’ of mature Christian understanding. And, so we have yearly Sunday Bible study for all ages in order to train up the young in the way they should go, as well as educate the adults, who are seeking to grow in their knowledge of the Lord. Topics include everything from books of the Bible to Christian doctrine, and lectures about the Anglican Way.
Thursday Night Evensong & Dinner (Seasonal)
Our seasonal Evensong takes place on the first Thursday night of the month from Labor Day to Memorial Day and every Thursday night during Advent and Lent. We meet at 5:30 for a choral service of Evensong (a.k.a. Evening Prayer), and then we have a time of Bible study with a meal in the undercroft. Our discussion will focus on a book of the Bible, so that we might grow together in the spiritual exercise of studying and “inwardly digesting” God’s word. For, by letting “the word of God dwell in you richly” (Col. 3:16) Christ the Word and Life comes to be more fully reflected in our lives. Please RSVP to the church office if you plan to attend the meal (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Every Sunday after our main worship service, we invite all members and guests to join us for a time of coffee and conversation before we head home for the day. In the early church, there were always meals of some kind following the worship of the church (see Acts 2:46). We invite you to join us as we continue the ancient practice of fellowship and hospitality in the name of Christ.
We also have seasonal meals at the church on special occasions, such as the Bishop’s visitation, and meals for celebrations of the seasons (e.g., Shrove Tuesday). Contact us for the schedule of upcoming events.
A number of our parishioners get together on a Monday morning, once per month, to bake bread and other items for outreach. This is a great way to show our care and love for our neighbors and continue the ancient Christian practice of providing for the poor and needy (see James 1:27).
