St. Paul’s by-the-Sea is a vibrant Episcopal church in the heart of Ocean City, a seaside resort town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. One of the town’s oldest churches, St. Paul’s has a long history of ministry to vacationers and year-round residents.

Located just steps from the famous Ocean City boardwalk, St. Paul’s by-the-Sea enjoys strong ties to the local community. Five days a week, our Shepherd’s Crook food pantry opens its doors in our DeWees hall, offering food and fellowship to anyone in need. Other outreach and community events are held throughout the year, including the popular N.O.E.L. Dinner on Christmas day, and Labyrinth walks.

St. Paul’s parish family is enriched by Christian education for all ages, fellowship events, and a variety of prayer and worship services. If you are new to Ocean City, we hope you will drop by for a visit. A warm welcome awaits you.
