9 AM Worship Service
"Outside of the Gate"
Please click the "Share link" below and share this service with family and friends.
In 1996 and 1998, the Kyiv Symphonic Choir & Orchestra performed at St. Paul United Church of Christ. The St. Paul Fine Arts committee sponsored the events. Click here to listen to the audio files from the concerts, plus view a gallery of photos of our visitors from Ukraine. Both concerts are filled with the "love of music." Pay particular attention to the end of the 1996 concert with the singing of "God Bless America," followed by the closing blessing by their Pastor with a message of peace and love.
Drivers Needed! We have members in search of a ride to Sunday Worship. Please contact the office for more information. 618-233-3306 email@example.com
PLEASE LET US KNOW! 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!. PLEASE LET US KNOW!

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
WE BELIEVE ALL PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD and are welcome here.
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.
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.
