Learning Sign Language
St. Paul's is learning Sign Language.
Why? Because all are welcome here!
At each of our Sunday Services you can experience the ASL Minute, a quick opportunity to learn a few new signs. Our goal is to help the congregation to live into our commitment to being a friendly and truly welcoming community. Knowing even a few signs is one of the many things that can help us accomplish that goal.
