Sunday, May 2 is Father Dan Scheid’s last day at St. Paul’s before he leaves for his new parish in San Francisco. St. Paul’s is planning a pandemic-appropriate, drive-up farewell event in the alley and parking lot behind the church between 10:30 AM and 12:00 Noon on Sunday, May 2.
He’ll be easier to spot outside as he promises not to wear his liturgical camouflage!  Please join us.
 

HISTORY

Established in 1817, the village that eventually became Flint was a thriving settlement where logging flourished. In 1839, the Reverend Daniel Brown came to Detroit to shepherd a congregation of worshippers in a small wooden tabernacle, the first Episcopal Church. As Flint blossomed, so did the congregation. Many of Flint’s early influencers were included in St. Paul’s faith community.

Our current building, on Saginaw Street in the heart of downtown Flint, was built in 1872 by renowned gothic church architect Gordon Lloyd. Stones for the new building were brought on sledges drawn over the ice of the Flint River. 

In 2015, we called our current rector, the Rev. Dan Scheid. With Father Dan, we are working to realize the dream of God with our wisdom of our past and our imagination for the future.
