What to wear?

We want you to come as you are, as God looks more at our hearts than at our clothes.  Here's what's typical:

Traditional Worship Services:  The Traditional Worship Services are the 8:30AM and 10:55AM services.  These services typically have traditional dress (jackets/ties are the norm but not required).  You could say it's a business casual atmosphere.

The Contemporary Worship Service:  The 9:00am service is our Contemporary Worship Service and it's contemporary in style.  Dress is more casual during this service.

Safe Sanctuaries

Because we love your children, please be assured that St. Paul takes their safety very seriously and follows strict guidelines as set out by our Conference, our Board of Trustees, and our Administrative Council.  If you'd like specific details about our Safe Sanctuary policy,  please call the church office at 706-327-7419.


What about Sunday School?

Adult Classes: We have many Adult Sunday morning classes (historically called Sunday School) that provide opportunities to learn, to fellowship together, and who often serve in missions beyond the walls of St. Paul.  Whether you are married or single, looking for a small class or a larger class, and no matter your age, you are sure to feel at home in any one of these adult classes.

Although classes are multi-generational and welcome adults of all ages, we've separated them into two age categories.

Children's Church

Children’s Church is for children who are in Pre-K through 2nd grade.  Luke 2:52 says “...and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”  During Children’s Church we learn three basic truths:

1. I need to make wise decisions.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

These truths are revealed through Bible stories, crafts, music and games.  Children’s Church teachers and parent volunteers escort the children to the Activity Room following the children’s sermon during the 10:55 Worship Service.  Parents pick up their children from the Activity Room following the worship service.
