Welcome

Welcome to the St. Paul United Methodist Church website!  We’re glad you found us, and we invite you to take a few moments and explore the ministry of our unique faith community.
 
As United Methodists, we are grounded in the grace of God, which claims us and loves us as we are and empowers us to be changed into all that God intends for us to be.  We are rooted in the scriptural call to become followers of Jesus Christ.  Our mission is to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community and to invite others to experience the love of Jesus Christ.  We do this through worship, study, and through many fellowship and mission opportunities.
 
Please accept our invitation to join us on Sunday mornings for Sunday School at 10:00am and Worship Service at 11:00am. Check out the calendar on the site and join us for the various events at St. Paul UMC. Feel free to call or email with questions! We want to get to know you and hope that you will find a place to grow in your walk with God and to belong in a community of grace and love.

    Blyth Lyons - In our hearts and prayers
    (Son of Chad and Brittany Lyons)

    Please lift up 16-month-old Blyth Lyons & his family in your prayers. He was admitted to the hospital with a 4-inch mass on his spine and underwent surgery to determine if it is malignant. We pray he will get the best possible treatment and for comfort for him and his family.  You can visit Caring Bridge to learn more and get updates from his family.
