History
 
 
In the year 1871, a few of our ancestors who were slaves six years earlier, gathered to study the Bible together to meet some of 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 came about in 1967 to form St. Paul Methodist Church.  Mt. Pleasant was  founded in 1897 as an Episcopal church.   The members of our church who have gone before us have 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. The Lord loves a cheerful giver.  2 Corinthians 9:7  Believers give because in them is the giving "DNA."  God is a giver. St. Paul is a tithing 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.  Then 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 to demonstrate your passion for God and others.
