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.
Deacon Gregg will be leading two studies during Lent. On Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. there will be a series on forgiveness.
On Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. we will again be offering our "soup, bread, and study" sessions. On February 25th and March 4th the group will be watching and responding to the film "The Flywheel" about a man who will do anything to sell cars. On March 18th the Rev.
