Saint Paul’s UMC offers many different ways for adults to grow in their faith. Our Sunday School program is the very heart of church, and we offer almost a dozen different adult Sunday School classes, each with its own unique personality and focus. This is where friendships are formed and where life (with all its ups and downs) is shared. If you are looking to connect to a smaller community within the church where you are known and cared for – a Sunday School class might be just what you are looking for!
We also offer several short-term studies and classes that meet in the evenings – usually as part of our Wednesday night dinner and class schedule. Feel free to explore what we have to offer, and know that you are welcome anytime!
Our mission is to build a Christian community where non-religious and nominally religious students are becoming deeply committed Christians. We accomplish this mission by equipping parents, adults and staff, as well as offering contemporary programs to lead students into a deeply committed faith.
MISSIONS AND OUTREACH
In 1952 when Saint Paul’s UMC was formed, Bishop Branscomb challenged the congregation in saying, “Never lose your missionary zeal; when you do, change your name!” Saint Paul was the first missionary, and we are working to become a church worthy of his name. Our missions programs develop deeply committed Christians by sending members of our congregation into our community and world to make disciples and serve others in ways that honor God, share Christ, transform lives and promote justice. Our goal is to have each and every member involved in as we living out our purpose to be the heart, hands and feet of Jesus in our community and world. Explore the many ways you can get involved in missions at Saint Paul’s UMC!
The Ministry of Music at Saint Paul’s
Saint Paul’s has a rich music tradition that spans both traditional and contemporary music. There are many places for you to join in and “make a joyful noise” through our Music Ministry!
CARING AND SUPPORT
One of the joys of community is that we are there for one another – to celebrate joyful times and to provide compassionate support during the more difficult seasons of our lives. Saint Paul’s has an active Congregational Care ministry that includes:
- prayer support
- meals for members who have been ill or who are celebrating the birth of a child
- home visitation and Eucharist for the homebound
- hospital visitation, especially helpful just prior to surgical procedures
Pastors and dedicated lay people alike provide care for those who are in need. Do not hesitate to let us know how we might walk alongside you!
