St. Paul's COVID-19 Response

To show our care and concern for the health and safety of our members and community, we continue to follow recommended guidelines from Saratoga County, New York State, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Face masks are optional in the church building. Those who need to wear a mask or are more comfortable in one are welcome to wear one. We recommend checking the CDC community level when deciding whether or not to wear a mask.  Online worship also continues. 

We are also pleased to announce that Holy Communion has returned to in-person worship! The signup for physically distant communion liturgies has been discontinued. Please contact Pastor Adam or the church office if you would like to receive communion but are unable to attend in-person worship.


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Taking precautions and being flexible is a way to serve the Lord and help keep everyone safe! For more info read the guidelines below.
