January 22, 2023 Annual Meeting Recap

*************************************************************

St. Paul’s is the church with a heart in the heart of the city of Flint. We’re a downtown church with our doors open wide to the community. Our worship style blends creativity with tradition, and our congregation is made up of a diverse and largely progressive group of people who come from the city and suburbs because downtown Flint is a terrific place to be. St. Paul’s celebrates the joy of loving, liberating, and life-giving Jesus.

St. Paul’s follows Christ and makes a difference in the world through inspired worship, powerful teaching and service to people who are hurting and poor.

*************************************************************

Currently, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church holds weekly services each Sunday at 10:00 AM.  These services are conducted in person, and are streamed on line on our Facebook page.

Weekday Mass is on Wednesday at 12:10 pm.  These Masses are held in person in the side chapel.  They are not live streamed on Facebook nor YouTube.

A Message from the Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern & Western Michigan, December 2022

OUR SEASON OF PRACTICE:  A CONVERSATION WITH OUR REGIONAL CANON STAFF

As we look ahead to reimagined regions across both dioceses, Bishop Singh sat down with Western Michigan’s three departing Canon Missioners and the Rev. Canon Dr. Tracie Little, current Canon to the Ordinary for Eastern Michigan to reflect on their ministries and look ahead into our Season of Practice. This long-form video (around 30 minutes) explores aspects of working on a bishop’s staff, what gifts are sought in a regional canon, and the gifts they’ve experienced in our dioceses and in our great Mitten state.

We invite you to respond to similar questions as well, whether as individuals or in small groups from your congregation, such as:

  • What gifts are important for the diocesan Regional Canon to have in support of our congregations’ mission and ministry?
  • What opportunities might exist for your congregation to collaborate with others through the reimagined regional model?
  • What are some gifts you’ve noticed in our bi-diocesan community?
  • How have you seen our communities shifting or adapting over the last several years?

We are seeking three new Regional Canons to join our diocesan staff. Click here to read more about the new positions and share with your network.

Welcome Message from Provisional Bishop Prince B. Singh, February 1, 2022

On his first official day with our dioceses, our provisional bishop, the Rt. Rev. Prince G. Singh, offers a word of greetings to our dioceses and, with disappointment, announces that the welcome service that was scheduled for February 1, 2022 has been postponed due to the incoming winter storm and the safety of our in-person participants.
Our service of evensong and welcome has been rescheduled for Thursday, February 24th at 7pm and is anticipated to also take place in an online format. We hope you will share this change broadly and that you will plan to join us online on the 24th.
