Welcome to St. Paul United Methodist Church!
At St. Paul’s, we gather as the children of God – praising Him and building faith in His believers. Our collection of imperfect people recognizes that life is messy. But this church family is deliberate in forming a relationship with Christ and making a real impact in our community.
 
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World. Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died on the Cross to offer salvation through faith in Him to all. If you will believe and live faithfully to it, God invites you into His family today to begin maturing in your faith.
 
We invite you to participate with us in praising Almighty God.
 
 
 
Celebrating 150-Years!

In the year 1871, a few of our ancestors, who were slaves six years earlier, gathered to study the Bible together to meet their spiritual needs. The first meeting place for these determined and inspired believers was a secluded Brush Arbor near Liberty and Main Streets. The Brush Arbor was the beginning of the St. Paul Church, the first African American Church established in the town of Winston.

A merger between St. Paul and Mt. Pleasant Methodist in 1967 formed St. Paul Methodist Church.  Mt. Pleasant was founded in 1897 as an Episcopal church.  Those that came before us demonstrated how we can succeed for Christ by keeping the faith, staying in prayer and not allowing obstacles to block our way. God continues to bless the St. Paul family by using us to reach out in service to the people in our community and to bring others to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Today

We are a church with dynamic worship and music. Where you will find scripture preached with power and accuracy. Bible studies will increase your knowledge of God and lead you to love Him more. Committed to genuine hospitality, our members will welcome you into our hearts and this church.

St. Paul is a Giving church. Our church is supported by the regular and faithful tithes of God’s people.  In addition, we offer opportunities to give to specific causes through offerings.  Our outreach work is supported through our weekly Mission’s Offering.  Scholarships are funded through the annual Church Anniversary Offering in May.  Revival is supported through an offering in October.  At Christmas, we give an offering to support Africa University.  In these ways, we tangibly show that we care. When you give at St. Paul every cent is used to further the cause of Christ.  We would have it no other way.

St. Paul is an exciting place to mature and  demonstrate your passion for God and others.
