Welcome to St. Paul’s

St. Paul’s has been a part of the Walkersville community since 1891.  We are located in the heart of historical downtown Walkersville on the corner of Fulton and Pennsylvania Ave.  Throughout the year you will find a vibrant congregation of believers worshiping on Sunday mornings.  We support Glade Valley Community Services (GVCS,)  by hosting GVCS Thrift Shop (Clothes Closet) and volunteering at the GVCS Food Bank.  Together we celebrate life’s victories and comfort each other through life’s challenges.  We are a community in Christ who would love to meet you.  Join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:00 am or at any of our upcoming events, check our calendar and current events on our home page.
What we believe:

We believe that all people are imperfect and are saved (made right with God) by God’s grace and God’s grace alone, through Christ. There is no special prayer you need to pray, no special state of mind you need to achieve and no good deed you need to perform. We believe that through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God became one of us and took upon himself the sin and suffering of all the world. God did this to demonstrate God’s love for us. We believe that we receive the gift of grace by faith alone on account of Christ. We live in the tension of still being sinful but trusting that we are forgiven and that God is at work in us. The gift of grace expresses God’s unconditional love, and in response to that love we are set free to live gratefully and lovingly. We believe God’s grace, God’s unfathomable love, is available to
all people as a gift through Jesus Christ.

Who is welcome?

Welcome is what our church strives for. We recognize there are groups and communities of people who have been hurt by experiences with church. They have been made to feel that they cannot be their God-given selves in church settings. All are welcome here with their whole selves, which includes one’s race, ethnic background, past wrongdoing, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability and legal status. Questions and doubts are
welcome. St. Paul’s is continually working toward our understanding of diverse communities and prayerfully welcome all of humanity without regard to any particular distinction. We subscribe to the teaching of Jesus in which we are called to love one another and do so through polite, respectful, and caring conversation. We strive to share our fundamental belief that God’s love and grace are limitless and for everyone.
St. Paul’s Welcomes YOU!
