    Visiting St. Paul’s Parish Princeton For this field observation project, I chose to attend the 5pm Sunday service at St. Paul’s Parish in Princeton. Growing up in the Pentecostal tradition, I have become at home in free worship and contemporary liturgy. Most of the church’s I’ve attended in the past had many informal elements in their liturgy, designed to make new-comers feel a little less awkward and part of the church family.

How or will we ever be able to overcome this without compromising our beliefs? After reading Noll’s book, The Work We Have To Do, we can see that our Church needs more heroes of the faith such as Daniel Payne.

This church focuses on hospitality, welcome, pastoral care, hospital visits, small groups, prayer teams,…
