Thank you for visiting our website!

  Welcome to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Bound Brook, we are a diverse and loving group of Episcopalians from around the corner, and around the world. Some of us come from as faraway as Nigeria, India, Jamaica and even a few come from Brooklyn. But most of us are from Middlesex, Somerset and Hunterdon counties.

We are a congregation committed to reaching out to others in this bruised and battered world in the spirit of Jesus Christ. As Christ touched others and allowed others to touch him so we are called forth beyond our church doors. We reach out not as a duty but in the spirit of joy and thankfulness for all that we have been given. We have been greatly blessed and strive to be a blessing to others.

At the parish level, we have a weekly program of feeding others called Lunch On Us that has been part of our congregational life for over twenty five years. Our worship on Sundays is at 8AM in the Rite I traditional style from the Book of Common Prayer. The 10AM service is in the Rite II style. We are a welcoming and inclusive community. Come visit and See!

 

 

 

Thought for the Week – December 10, 2019

 

One of the saints the Christian churches remember this week is Lucy.  She died during a period of the church’s persecution in the year 303.  Lucy, whose name means “light,” is remembered in different ways by different European cultures.  In Sweden, girls dress up as the saint, wearing halos of lit candles and greeting their families early in the morning.  The candles are not only a reminder that Jesus is the light of the world, but that each of us bears the light of Christ to the world.  How can we be better lights of Christ to the world?

 

Announcements:

 

The Wednesday Advent Bible Study continues tomorrow.  We will meet on 12/11 and 12/18 after the 12 Noon Eucharist and run for approximately 45 minutes.

 

There is an exciting opportunity to gift wrap presents for Middle Earth families this Friday, December 13, at 5 PM, in Rennell Hall.  All presents, wrapping paper, and pizza will be provided.

 

The Sunday School Pageant is this Sunday, December 15, during the 10 AM Eucharist.  Come and celebrate the birth of Jesus through the eyes of our children!

 

Our December Pancake Breakfast is this Sunday, December 15, between the services.  Come and enjoy a free breakfast and the congregation’s generous hospitality!

 

Select donations of new and gently-used women’s clothing will be accepted this Sunday, December 15, during the pancake breakfast (between 9 AM and 10 AM only) for the Heavenly Boutique.  The Heavenly Boutique will be open next on January 4, 9-1.

 

Saint Paul’s is grateful to host an Advent non-denominational Christian healing service on Sunday, December 15, at 1:30 PM in our sanctuary.  Open to the community, this service will offer prayers for healing of body, mind, and spirit in the Christian tradition of the laying on of hands. 

 

The next Mr. Subs fundraiser is next Tuesday, December 17, from 10 AM to 8 PM.  Please come out and support this local business in grateful recognition for the ways we have been supported by it!
