St. Paul’s invites you into Our Vision

A sacred place where all people can be inspired, healed and transformed by the love of Jesus Christ

Vicar’s Welcome: The Rev. Mother Adrienne R. Hymes

Martha said to Jesus, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died…’. Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’” (John 11:21, 23)

Welcome to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Wesley Chapel.  The scripture passage above is taken from a larger passage in John (11:17-27) in which the sister of Lazarus, Martha, confronts Jesus after her brother has already died. This passage is one of the gospels used in the Burial of the Dead liturgy in our Book of Common Prayer.

2024 Annual Giving Invitation: Rooted in Abundance

I recently had the opportunity to share the good news of St. Paul’s with clergy from across the country and Canada. The title of my keynote presentation was,  St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Wesley Chapel: Visioning, Dreaming and Becoming in Christ. Preparing the presentation blessed me with precious time to reflect on the life of this church from the very beginning to the present, pouring over the multitude of images that tell the inspiring story of how St. Paul’s came to be. From the early desire of Bishop Smith, and the Diocese of Southwest Florida, to have an Episcopal presence in Wesley Chapel, to the growing congregation which gathers weekly to worship God in our dedicated sanctuary, I remain in awe of what we are becoming in Christ. Those early sessions of visioning and dreaming, while meeting in the car dealerships, to a fully functioning faith community meeting in our own dedicated worship space is awe inspiring. There is no denying that out faith community is no longer a mere vision, but a manifestation of the body of Christ and God’s mission in the world. St. Paul’s, we have much for which to be thankful.

A Growing Faith Community

On October 17, 2020 the 52nd Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida affirmed St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, formerly Wesley Chapel Episcopal Church, as a mission. St. Paul’s continues to celebrate many historic “firsts” as a growing faith community. Mother Hymes and the saints of St. Paul’s invite you to:

Come and worship. Come and serve. Come and feel the Spirit move!

“I’ve been lost in the wilderness for the past year, searching for a home church. In the Wesley Chapel Episcopal Church, I have found a church community, being newly formed by people with diverse backgrounds and having like hearts in Christ’s love and scripture. The Lenten series provided time and space to explore Episcopal traditions, expand my evangelism skills, and accept the support of each other in the model of Jesus Christ. I won’t have to walk alone in my spiritual journey, now that I’ve found my brothers and sisters in Christ.” 

Karen B.

“For much of my adult life, I have been studying and learning about religious and spiritual traditions outside of my Christian heritage.  The Lenten Series that Eric and you presented over the past six weeks was quite effective in describing human nature, psychology and spirituality from a Christian perspective.  I was struck by how these Christian teachings can be understood in terms that I have found so easily understandable in the other traditions and yet have not applied to Christian theology.”
