A Covid-19 Guidelines Update for St. Paul United Church of Christ


Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the St. Paul United Church of Christ leadership has taken this virus seriously and has followed local, state, and federal guidelines as well as listened to the science informing the public on the need for mitigations.


Due to increasing cases and the Omicron variant, we have made some adjustments to our guidelines. 


First of all, we will be canceling coffee hour this Sunday and throughout January, and the Culinaires' Breakfast will also be canceled on January 16. Future plans beyond next month will be evaluated at the beginning of January.  


Secondly, we will be reinstituting physical distancing in the sanctuary for worship and wherever possible in our building. Beginning on Friday evening, we will ask that our congregants be seated every-other pew.  


State guidelines on masks have been renewed. Masks are mandated at all times while in the St. Paul UCC building. If you are unable to wear masks over both your nose and mouth, you can watch our service online on Facebook, YouTube, or on our website (stpaulucc.org). Sunday morning services are also broadcast live on Jubilee 690AM.


It is important that we can continue to have worship in person if possible. By instituting these practices, we believe we can continue to do so safely.


Thank you for your help in keeping the St. Paul United Church of Christ community safe during the holidays and into the new year!



Dr. Steve Schmidt, Council President
Mimi Llamas, Safety Team
Dave Hoffmann, Safety Team
Rev. Michelle Torigian, Senior Pastor
Patrick Kinney, Facility Manager & Safety Coordinator

Monday through Thursday 8:30am-4pm Friday 9am-12pm

Music Ministry Update

Dr. Bill Wade has resigned as Music Director at St. Paul United Church of Christ. We thank him for all of his work during the two years he was at St. Paul and wish him well in his future endeavors!

Sunday School is on hold for January!

Drivers Needed!
We have members in search of a ride to Sunday Worship. 
Please contact the office for more information.


Due to a change in Memorial Hospital's record system, we currently are not able to find out who is in their Belleville or Shiloh locations when we call the Belleville-area hospitals each day. Please have someone (you, your family member, or a chaplain at the hospital) let us know when you are at any of the hospitals on either side of the river. Thank you!


Has your phone #, email or mailing address changed? We will be working on the 2022 Guide Book soon and would like to hear from you with any changes. Please email swilhelm@stpaulucc.org or call the office @ 618-233-3303 to let us know. Thank you!

Annual Reports are due by January 31st!
 Please email Sherry. 
 Thank you!

Greetings, we are excited to bring you some updates on our outreach projects. Without your support none of this would be possible. Thank you again for allowing us to serve others.

Local & Regional

We lovingly support our St. Paul Senior Community, Ecumenical Community Food Pantry, Franklin Neighborhood Association, Hoyleton services for children and Emmaus Homes for the developmentally challenged. We also support our conference DuBois Center and church-related Eden Theological Seminary.  

Nation & World

As a congregation within the United Church of Christ, we gladly support our denomination and national ministries, plus a variety of world missions through Our Church’s Wider Mission and the One Great Hour of Sharing.

Our Core Values



God, the designer and crafter of all, created all humanity in God's own image thus making us siblings in the family of life.


WE STRIVE TO BE SERVANTS in service to others.

God, the redeeming Christ, calls us to love one another as he has loved us.


WE NEED CHRISTIAN EDUCATION for good faith and life.

God, the eternal spirit, nurtures us continually toward the realization of God's vision of heaven on earth.

Our Ministries

Care & Compassion

“They shall know we are Christians by our love.” We follow Jesus’ commandment to “love each other” from birth to death and blessed memory. We support baptism at any age along with staying With You through illness or in times of special need. Our With You ministry provides visitation and chore services in coordination with our pastors, who visit and officiate at weddings and funerals.



“The more we know, the better it gets.” St. Paul has a historic commitment to education for all…and all ages! Children as young as two years old are served by our Mothers’ Day Out preschool. Our children and youth opportunities include crafts, classes and camping experiences plus Confirmation and music programs. Adult education is founded on the Forum, our after-worship enrichment hour that offers a variety of faith-supportive topics.

It’s been said that “Music is the voice of God”. We experience this in harmony with our Chancel Choir, Women's & Men's Ensembles in addition to our Glory Ringers. We inspire our neighboring community with our Fine Arts series and long-time partnership with the Masterworks Chorale. There’s something for all ages since “God is still speaking” through our ministries of music! Click the links below for more information on our Music Ministry.
