A Word from our Pastor:

Welcome to St Paul’s United Methodist Church’s website.

We’re glad you’ve visiting us here to find out more about our great church! We trust you’ll find all about how much we can offer to you and your family and do want you to come and visit us in person anytime. May I suggest coming to worship with us each and every pastorSunday morning as we praise the Lord Jesus Christ right here in the heart of downtown Orangeburg?

I trust that the Holy Spirit may have led you here to check out our church and we want you definitely to be a part of our growing church family here at St Paul’s. We are a Christ-centered, Bible believing church who celebrates together and apart that Jesus is Lord and Savior. God is actively calling us to be in fellowship together so that we can preach the Gospel, serve Him in outreach and experience the mighty power of the work of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God in victorious living. That is who we are and abundant Life in Jesus Christ is what we lovingly offer to you here at St Paul’s.

Please come see us soon,

Pastor Will Harper

Homecoming - October 9, 2016


Dear Members and Friends of St. Paul’s,

The St. Paul’s United Methodist Church family excitedly extends a special invitation to you to join us as we celebrate 180 years of Methodism in Orangeburg. 2016 marks the 118th year since the dedication of our beautiful sanctuary.

At St. Paul’s we continue to live into these roots planted so long ago as we gather as the family of God every Sunday. And on Sunday, October 9, we will celebrate Homecoming Sunday. Mark your calendar and make sure you are here for this special service of worship. The celebration will begin in the Sanctuary with a hymn sing at 10:15. Thumb through the hymnal and find your favorites! We will then have a wonderful worship service at 10:45 am followed by a covered dish luncheon in the Fellowship Hall.

Our Homecoming Speaker will be Rev. Carl Harris, pastor from 1985-1993.   Carl and Shirley Harris currently live in Loris, SC. Born in Union, Carl is a graduate of Wofford College and Emory University.

Homecoming Day will be an exciting day filled with good singing, God’s Word, preaching and lots of fun, food, and fellowship.

If you are unable to be with us on this special Sunday, we hope that you will be in prayer for this celebration. Please send us a note and let us know how you are doing! Please participate by sending us a story of your journey of faith that happened at St. Paul’s. You are an important part of the family of God here at St. Paul’s. We thank God for all the people across the years who have been a part of our community of faith, hope, and love.

In His Grace,

Rev. William N. Harper (Will)
