St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Suamico, seeks to grow in God’s word and spirit through praise, worship and study, so we may share Christ’s love with others.
What is the Episcopal Church?
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Our Bishop is the Right Rev. Matthew Gunter. We are part of the world wide Anglican Communion with over 70 million members in 163 countries of the world.
In the Episcopal Church, we are called to live out our faith on a daily basis, whether we are at home, school, work, or recreation. The cornerstones of our Faith are Scripture, Tradition, and Reason.
The Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Within
an Episcopal worship service, Scripture is read in the lessons, The Gospel (the teaching and life of Jesus), The Psalms (praise, prayers and spiritual poems from the Old Testament) and other prayers. Additionally, two-thirds of our guide to worship, The Book of Common Prayer, comes directly from the Bible.
The heart of our tradition is expressed through the Bible, the Creeds (statements of faith), the sacraments, including baptism, The Lord’s Supper, and ordained ministry, all passed on by Christ to His Church. Our tradition encourages diversity. We value the life and story each person brings to the faith community. Each person’s offering is woven into the whole, making it stronger and more beautiful.
A personal relationship with God allows us to realize and celebrate our lives to the fullest. The gift of reason, when used with Scripture and Tradition, leads us to seek answers to our own questions and to grow spiritually. Being active in a community of faith, such as St. Paul’s Church in Suamico, strengthens us to carry our faith into the world.
The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Mid way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful consideration of what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ.
St. Paul’s has served this community for over 135 years. From its beginnings when a group of English immigrant ladies met for prayer services, to the growing parish today, serving members from Green Bay, Howard, Suamico, Pulaski, and beyond, St. Paul’s continues to meet an individual’s desire to find and serve Christ.
Today, in a new location on Flintville Road, Suamico, we continue our mission to be and make Christ present and known, by word and deed to our neighbors.
