OUR HISTORY

 

 

 

St. Paul's Church Episcopal Church is deeply interwoven in the origin, growth and revitalization of Flint, Michigan. Established in 1817 the village was a thriving settlement where logging flourished. in 1839 The Reverend Daniel Brown came to Detroit to shepherd a congregation of worshippers in a small wooden tabernacle, the first Episcopal Church.

 Flint grew rapidly and so did St. Paul's. In 1872 a large gothic revival building designed by renowned church architect, Gordon Lloyd was built to accomodate what would soon be many of Flint's most prominent citizens. The building's massive stones were brought on sledges drawn over the ice of the Flint River from a quarry in nearby Flushing. One sledge was driven by the Rector, The Reverend Marcus Lane.

 

Our History

Established in 1817, the village was a thriving settlement where logging flourished. In 1839, the Reverend Daniel Brown came to Detroit to shepherd a congregation of worshippers in a small wooden tabernacle, the first Episcopal Church.

 

Our current building, on Saginaw Street in the heart of downtown Flint, was built in 1872 by renowned gothic church architect Gordon Lloyd. Stones for the new building were brought on sledges drawn over the ice of the Flint River. 

 

As Flint blossomed, so did the congregation. Many of Flint's early influencers were included in St. Paul's faith community. 

 

In 2015 we called our current rector, the Rev. Dan Scheid. With Father Dan, we will work to realize the dream of God with our wisdom of our past and our imagination for the future.
