I'm Doug.

We are very blessed that you are exploring our website and learning more about St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.


As Senior Pastor, I invite you to attend one of our worship services to continue your exploration of us and how we may serve you. We work to involve everyone because everyone is welcome here. Since 1958, people have sought us out for inspiration, guidance, and service. 


For nearly six decades, we have been located at 9500 Constitution Avenue NE, worshiping in the glory of momentous music and strong Biblical preaching! The ancient trusted and inspired Word of God continues to be incarnated here as a powerful, personal experience.


Again, thank you for visiting our website.


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. 


God Bless.

Pastor Doug


We believe in love.

We believe God is Love. Although humankind falls short of God’s deepest dream for our lives, God so loved the world that Jesus was sent to offer New Life to all.

At St. Paul’s, New Life is developed in three arenas: 


WorshipBecoming Community, and Engage Mission.
