Frequently Asked Questions

We hope you’ll join us! On Sundays, there is parking specifically marked for visitors so that you don’t have to walk far to the front door.

You can expect someone to greet you when you walk in and to hand you an Order of Worship that contains everything you’ll need to follow along and participate in our worship service. You may enter the worship space and sit anywhere in the pews that feels comfortable to you. You can expect the service to last about 45 minutes at the 8 AM Eucharist, and about 60-70 minutes at the 10am Eucharist.

You’ll find people dressed in an array of fashions – from Sunday best to casual backyard gathering. Please know you are welcome regardless of your attire.

Lastly, please know you are welcome to participate as little or as much as you’d like. Saint Paul’s stands ready to meet you wherever you are in your faith journey.

We host a number of opportunities to learn more about the Episcopal Church throughout the year, called Inquire. Check our Events page for the next scheduled session. The clergy are also always available for questions and curiosity! Please don’t hesitate to reach out for more conversation or inquiries. For independent research, the Episcopal Church website and the Episcopal Diocese of Texas website are great resources for overviews of our faith and beliefs.
On Sundays, the church building is open 7:00 AM through 1:00 PM.

During the week, please contact the office about using the church building. We cannot leave the church unlocked during the week for the safety of our school children.

Every Sunday, childcare for infants-3 year olds is available in the Nursery from 8:30AM-11:30 PM. Pagers are provided to parents. When indicated, childcare is also available at special services and events.

Membership requirements depend upon your starting place. For those new to the Christian faith, baptism and confirmation are the avenues by which you become a member at Saint Paul’s. If you’ve been baptized and confirmed in another Christian tradition, then reception is the best route for membership. If you are already Episcopalian, you may transfer your letter of membership from you previous church by contacting our Membership Secretary. If you’re unsure of which method is right for you, please reach out to one of our clergy. We would be happy to help and support you as you make this important decision.
Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Our clergy are glad to call on parishioners, providing prayer and support for all situations. Most common are hospital visits related to sickness, surgery, childbirth, and terminal illnesses. Clergy also visit the homebound or parishioners who are in crisis. In an emergency situation, such as a hospitalization or death, the most direct way to reach clergy is to call the church office (254-753-4501). If it is not an emergency, you are invited to contact any priest and schedule an appointment (at the church or off-site). See here for staff contact info.

It is best to make an appointment, because our clergy may be in the office or may be out on visitations. By making an appointment, you are assured that the clergy can set aside as much time as you need.

Saint Paul’s believes in a strong lay ministry. As the Church, we can accomplish much more with the dedicated time and talents of our members. Check out our Connect tabs in the navigation menu. You may also read through our Ministry Booklet on our News page to determine what might interest you most. If you need help accessing that information, please contact the Church Office and ask to speak with someone about ministry opportunities.
