ST. PAUL’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH, ST. JOSEPH, MICHIGAN

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is a loving and affirming faith community.  We seek to serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves, striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being.  We welcome all… no exceptions.

At one time, the city block of green space that St. Paul’s now occupies, was inhabited by the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi Nation.  It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, not far from the St. Joseph River and Lake Michigan, also known as the Sunset Coast.

We are a multi-generational parish and our style of worship flows easily between traditional and more contemporary Episcopal practices.

Our parish faithfully supports the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen at the Salvation Army by providing monthly volunteers, food, and financial support. We are also active participants in many not-for-profit organizations locally.

As we seek to expand our understanding of God’s call to us, we rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us in how we are to serve our neighbors beyond the doors of the church. We welcome all to join us in this time of discernment as we fulfill our role in the “Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement”[1] and in our journey to become The Beloved Community, we are meant to be.

 

[1] Curry, The Most Reverend Michael B, the 27 Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church
