Saint Paul is moving. The congregation has voted to sell our longtime home at 7200 Bellaire Blvd. and move to a new site farther west. We plan to continue worshiping at our current location until Sunday, August 13.
Starting August 20, our worship service for the next several months will be at the True Buddha Temple Fellowship Hall located at 7734 Mary Bates in Houston.
Heads up! Starting August 20, we need everyone’s help by volunteering to sweep, set up chairs, privacy panels, the communion table and pulpit, and portable sound system each Sunday, plus cleaning and breakdown afterward.
The plan is eventually to locate the new Saint Paul on five acres at Highway 6 and Voss Road in Sugar Land, next to Kempner High School.
We will have space at the temporary site for Sunday worship, classes, nursery, Early Childhood Ministries, meetings and all that we need for now. See you there on August 20 as we start this new journey together in Christ’s service. Join the Saint Paul Presbyterian Church uprising!
We are extremely grateful for the ministry of the Rev. Dr. Kevin Boyd, who was our pastor for nearly 15 years. Pastor Kevin recently accepted a call to serve as senior pastor and head of staff at St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Boerne. It has been a blessing to have him all these years, and we are excited about the new and marvelous things God plans for his future (and his family) and for the future of Saint Paul.
Saint Paul folks help homeless and low-income people on a regular basis.
We return to Church Under the Bridge on the second Saturday of each month. Church Under the Bridge is operated by Thousand Hills Ministries. Saint Paul folks prepare and serve a meal and lead worship, including music and a sermon. We typically serve up to 100 people or more in each visit. We meet at 5:30 p.m. at Saint Paul and carpool to the site near downtown Houston. Lately we also have collected new socks and distributed them, too.
Once a month, we volunteer at the food pantry operated by the Christian Community Service Center, screening requests for assistance and stocking and providing food from the pantry. Want to help? Join us at St. Luke’s-Gethsemane just down the street on Bellaire Boulevard. No need to sign up – just meet us there! We typically provide this service on the fourth Saturday of every month, from 8:45 a.m. until noon.
We need your help for both projects! All are welcome. Please join us.
