Welcome to St. Paulís Episcopal Church, Beloit WI!
Join the people of St. Paul's as we seek to grow in our love of God and for each other. We celebrate the Eucharist on Sundays at 10 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 12:05 p.m. You can join the MP's for Morning Prayer on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. - the coffee pot is always on. And the church is now air-conditioned so we can worship in comfort year round.
Please join us in praying this prayer for St. Paul's everyday: Lord God, thank you for our parish family at St. Paul's.† Let your Holy Spirit work within our parish so we may do your will in this community and the world.† Through your Son Jesus Christ.† Amen.
St. Paul's is the oldest house of worship in Beloit, Wisconsin, having been built in 1850.† We are located in downtown Beloit, close to the Rock River, at 212 W. Grand Avenue.
We are a diverse parish, of young and old, "cradle" Episcopalians and converts, white, Asian, and African-American, blue collar and white collar,straight and gay - all are welcome.† What we share is a love of the Lord, and a conviction that we can grow in our faith and make a difference in the greater Beloit community.† "We follow Christ's teachings. We grow spiritually. We serve the needs of our neighbors. " (St. Paul's mission statement).
Beginning April 26 at 9 a.m., Deacon Gregg began a new adult ed series titled "Dare to Dream." Are your goals too small, or is there a greater God dream for you? Come and learn what your best future might be, if you dare to dream.
Advent is here - time to get ready for Christ's birth!
Yes, Advent - the time to prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus, has come around again. For four weeks we watch and wait as our "King and Savior draws near." We try to quiet our hearts and minds for a time so that when Jesus comes to us in the manger, as a tiny, helpless baby, we will be able to see him with clear eyes and hear him with eager ears.
Won't you join us in the walk through Advent?
Join us on Friday evening December 4th from 5 to 9 pm, or on Saturday December 5th from 9 am to 1 pm, for our annual celebration of Holidazzle/Sweet Shoppe.
This year we will be featuring a large display of Nativity sets (creches, from the French for cradle) from the Church's collection and from our parish members. They range from the tiny to 1/2 of life-size, and from the whimsical to the awe-inspiring.
There will be a raffle featuring a king/queen sized quilt, a quilted wall hanging, a wine and cheese basket, and a spa basket. There will be cookies galore in the cookie walk, a great crafts display, and a wonderful selection of breads, cakes, stollen, jellies, jams, and other home-made goodies. Please join us and let us help you with your Christmas shopping!
