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!

On Sunday, July 29th (5th Sunday in July) there will be a combined single worship service for both  St. Paul and Duke’s Chapel!  The service will be 10am and will be held at St. Paul!  Please come and participate!

With the arrival of our new Pastor, we have a change in the Sunday Worship Schedule – 10 am Coffee/donuts;  10:15 am Opening Sunday School;  10:30 am Sunday School;  11:30am Worship Service! (Except as noted above for the combined worship services tentatively scheduled for every 5th Sunday. After July 29 the next 5th Sunday of a month will be September 30.)

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!
