Welcome to our website! I consider it a blessing and privilege to minister with God’s people at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea. They are the BEST! I warmly invite you to visit us and see for yourself why this community of faith will meet your needs.

When I came to St. Paul’s by-the-Sea in early 2006 the congregation surrounded us with prayers, love and great southern hospitality. We knew we were “home” and have not looked back. We quickly learned that EVERYONE is welcomed the way we were.

Our worship is uplifting, comforting, and powerful. Seekers, doubters, and those whose faith is unwavering pray side by side and honor one another’s faith experience. I pray our website serves as a first introduction to St. Paul’s by-the-Sea. Then come in person – the door is wide open!

May God bless you and those you hold dear,
