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.

Mission Statement:

Serving Christ from the Church on the Corner.

Our On-going Community Missions:

  • Blessing Box - a box of food, toiletries and household supplies available for those in need, located on the corner of the churchyard on Bridge and Amaker Streets
  • Food Pantry - providing food to the Council on Aging in St. Matthews to be distributed to the elderly most in need
  • Calhoun County Snack Packs - Feeding hungry children in need with a bag of snacks delivered to the local public schools every week for the children to take home and have over the weekend.
  • Angel Tree - Providing gift-wrapped toys and clothes for children most in need in our community at Christmastime

  1. creating an environment of hospitality where all are welcome,
  2. engaging in worship that transforms the lives of those in the church, the community, and the world,
  3. providing Christian education for all ages through teaching and sharing God’s Word,
  4. reaching out to those in need with love, compassion, and understanding,
  5. and committing to evangelism by sharing our faith and inviting others into our faith community.


Flower Fund

We are in the process of raising money for new artificial arrangements for our worship services throughout the year when fresh flowers are not put in. The arrangements will be made by Melissa Cook, who is donating her time to put them together. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. You may also sign up on the flower calendar at the back of the sanctuary for fresh flowers on a specific Sunday, in memory/honor of someone or special occasion. Thank you!


St. Paul May Birthdays

Food Pantry Sunday

The first Sunday of each month is Food Pantry Sunday. Please bring any non-perishable food items with you to church and place in the basket at the back of the sanctuary.  We'll use this food for the Food Pantry and Blessing Box. Thank you so much!
