Welcome to St. Paul UMC!

04/17/2023 UPDATE!!!

Dear Church family and friends,
St. Paul UMC and Duke’s Chapel are now having  Sunday Morning Worship Service in their respective sanctuaries at 10:00 am for Duke’s Chapel and 11:15 am for St. Paul.    Please note that at least one service will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube (under “Casey M”) for later viewing if you cannot participate in one of the  services.

4/17/23 Update
Dear Church family and friends,
We will send out a weekly worship video so that we can worship together while we are apart.
In times of turbulence we hold on to Jesus, our anchor, our Savior the sure and solid rock.
Matthew 7:34
‘Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock.
Let us make holy use of this unwelcome time, going deep in our reflection, going wide in our concern, going carefully in our ministry.
God is with us. You are in my prayers.
Pastor Casey

We invite you to come and experience God and community with our lively Saturday night Sacred Grounds Coffeehouse concerts, our Sunday morning worship and our Wednesday evening Community Worship!

St. Paul is a place of healing and growth through Narcotics Anonymous meetings and our bible studies. We continue to help transform Durham in serving our neighbors by partnering with the Durham Rescue Mission, Urban Ministries, the Colonial Village Neighborhood Association, the Northgate Park Neighborhood Association and more.

See our community engagement and activities on our Blog.

Let our Sermons on Video inspire you! (Sermon Page has been updated with YouTube link for St. Paul/Dukes’s Chapel UMC Video Services!)

Music is a universal language that brings us closer to each other and to God.  Learn about our Choir and our very talented Music Director, Carolyn Crowder.  The St. Paul United Methodist Church Choir is accepting new singers!  Come and sing a wide variety of music with us: everything from old time southern gospel music, hymns, and sacred harp songs to contemporary praise songs.  Whether you are an experienced singer, or have never sung before, come and make a joyful noise unto the Lord with us!  We rehearse on Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30 PM, and Sundays from 10:45-11:15 AM.  Sunday services are from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM.   

You would be hard pressed to find a more hospitable group of people.   We invite you to come as we Worship GodLove Neighbor and Raise Disciples of Jesus Christ!
