LOVING. LIBERATING. LIFE-GIVING.

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

What We Believe

We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.

We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.

​Intentional Inclusion and Democratic Governance

St. Paul’s and the Episcopal Church practice full sacramental equality for LGBTQ people. This includes marriage and ordination. Episcopal Church policies are set democratically by governing bodies made up of lay people, deacons, priests, and bishops.

Examination, Change, and Growth

The leadership and congregation of St. Paul’s has gone through several years of change, leading to introspection and inward growth.

In June 2022, St. Paul’s undertook an exhaustive community-wide engagement of diverse and important stakeholders from across Flint for a dynamic and collaborative COMMUNITY ASSET MAPPING EVENT.  Click the link below to access the report of the 2022 Community Asset Mapping Activity, and to learn more about this important undertaking.  Partners for Sacred Places and Asset Mapping

In addition, when our pastor, Father Dan Scheid, took a position at All Saints Church in San Francisco in May of 2021, we welcomed an interim Priest-in-charge, Father Don Davidson.  He is leading us through a transition period as we seek a new rector.  More will be communicated on this as the Search Committee conducts their thoughtful due diligence to find that person who is called to lead this great parish.

One of Many

St. Paul’s is a congregation of The Episcopal Church, a denomination in the Anglican Communion, made up of millions of people across the world. We are members of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan, a network of 47 congregations. 

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.
