Peace of Christ!

Welcome! And thank you for checking out our website. St. Paul's is a member of the Episcopal faith tradition. Centered in downtown Lansing at the corner of West Ottawa and Seymour Streets, directly across from the State Capitol, St. Paul's has been a presence in this community for more than 160 years. All who wish to grow their faith in a safe space are invited to join in our worship, educational programs, outreach to the community, and other activities. We are an open and affirming community; our doors are open to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, or social class. God's love is extended to all, and it is our hope that you can experience this love among us.

St. Paul's is a busy place with many ministries. We invite you to find a ministry that best speaks to the passion of you heart and the gifts that God has given to you, whether in music, education, Christian formation, outreach, or pastoral care. We invite you to visit us to get a sense of the place and who we are.

Our Sunday services are at 8:00AM and 10:00AM. The 8:00AM service is a spoken service, with no music, and a contemplative atmosphere. The 10:00AM service is enhanced by our adult and youth choirs, and by congregational singing. Both services follow the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. As a sacramental church, we celebrate Holy Communion (mass) at both services on Sunday.

For children and youth, Sunday School is available for all ages, and there is a staffed nursery.

Our worship life is enhanced by special services, such as the Blessing of the Animals, Children's Sabbath, Blue Christmas, St. Nicholas Sunday, Choral Evensong, and more.

Please learn more about us by browsing the links at the top of the page or using the search box to the right. For more detailed information, you can contact the office at 517-482-9454, or send an email to me at

We look forward to your visit. God's blessing on you and yours.

The Rev. Karen C. Lewis, Rector
