Casey and husband

Welcome to St. Paul UMC! 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 UMC is now in a cooperative parish with Duke’s Chapel UMC and our Pastor Casey Mursten serves both congregations.  The parish has tentatively planned to have a combined worship service for both congregations every 5th Sunday and/or at each church’s Homecoming.

Also every 5th Sunday at 9am there will be an All-Church Breakfast hosted by the United Methodist Men at ST. Paul! There will be No Sunday School on these dates!  The next 5th Sunday Joint Service will be at Duke’s Chapel on September 29, 2019 10am. 

(Note: do to time  constraints there will not be a All-Church Breakfast for the Sept 29th service, however there may be lunch afterwards [to be confirmed].)

The Homecoming service for Duke’s Chapel is on September 8th at 11:00am (music and singing will start at 10:45, please arrive early!).  St. Paul members are invited and therefore this will also be joint service!

St. Paul is a place of healing and growth through Alcoholics and 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.

Our Youth Group meets the 2nd Sunday of each month at 4pm in Sacred Grounds Coffeehouse.

Let our Sermons on Video inspire you!

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, Robert Buxton.  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 10:30-11:00 AM.  Sunday services are from 11:30 AM to 12:30 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!
