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.

  • 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.

  • Kids Sunday School NEWS

    Our children will celebrate with an ice cream party this Sunday. They filled their kindness jar with post-it notes, which they wrote the many acts of kindness they performed during the first few months of 2023.

    We recently began our study of Lent and what it means to us as Christians. We look forward to seeing your children in Sunday School, they are such a blessing to us and the church!
