As we are changed and transformed by the Gospel of Jesus, we begin to reach out to others. At St. Paul’s, we serve the community in many ways, and we partner with others in ministering in the Dallas area and in foreign countries.
Serving at St. Paul’s
- Worship Ministry
Worship at St. Paul’s requires many ministers. From Worship Hosts who welcome guests and assist with the offertory and Communion, Lectors who read our Bible lessons and lead the congregation in prayer to Chalice Bearers who assist with Communion. Younger members can help with carrying the Gospel book during the procession as well as act in the capacity of Acolyte to assist with preparing the table. Worship Safety members monitor the children’s wing and entrance to ensure the safety of our members and guests. Contact: Karyn Fortune at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Altar Guild
The Altar Guild contributes to the dignity and reverence of the Eucharist by setting the altar each week, caring for the altar hangings, tending to the details of making the altar a focus of our Worship.

Prayer is an essential part of Worship. Intercessors pray for others during Holy Communion and for the parish throughout the entire Worship service. Additionally, Intercessors can craft the Prayers of the People and may lead the Prayers of the People during Worship.

- Connect Team
Visitors to St. Paul’s are met by friendly and informed Greeters who go out of their way to Connect the visitor to St. Paul’s by answering questions, escorting parents and children to the Nursery or Children’s Worship, and introducing newcomers to others. Greeters generally serve once per month. Connect volunteers also help coordinate occasional church-wide fellowship events and provide meals for St. Paul’s families after illness or birth of a child.
