If you live in or around Waterloo, or are visiting this beautiful part of the Finger Lakes, we hope that you will join us for Sunday Worship at 9:30am. We are a very friendly parish and welcome all visitors and everyone who is considering joining our parish community. Those at all stages of their faith journey are welcome, including those who are thinking of starting a faith journey.
Families are encouraged to visit. Our Program for Children and Teens meets on the first and third Sundays of each month during the school year. Children of all ages join our program leader, Sophie Ritter, a senior at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, during the first half of our service. They then join the rest of the congregation for Holy Communion. All children and teens are welcome, and should meet in our church building at the beginning of our 9:30am service.
On other Sundays, we have a family area in the back of our church building with games and activities for younger children. Parents are welcome to bring games and activities to the pews or are welcome to take their children to the family area during the service if their children need a break. We LOVE to hear the sounds of infants, toddlers, and children – they add so much to our worship.
As you will see on this website, our parish is a vibrant community. Not only do we worship together, we have many social and service events together. The Women of St. Paul’s, the Men’s Association, and the Social Club meet monthly. Many parish members serve during our worship services as part of the Altar Guild, the ushers, the lay readers, and the parish musicians.
Most importantly, we are a parish that celebrates with each other during times of joy and supports each other during times of sadness or anxiety. We strive to be the type of community of which Jesus can be proud!
