Welcome to St. Paul’s UMC
Worship with us in beautiful, downtown Sykesville, Maryland. America’s coolest small town!
St. Paul’s United Methodist Church is Christ-centered, dedicated to modeling and teaching the love of God in an ever changing world. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, we seek to serve our community through local and global ministries. We will nurture the physical and spiritual well-being of those entrusted to our care. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we will be able to grow and change in response the needs of our community.
New and Noteworthy:
Grace and Addiction Dinner
Once a month, on a Saturday, the Grace & Addiction committee sponsors a dinner for those facing addiction. We make every effort to reach out to area churches, support groups, and rehabilitation/sober living facilities hoping God will lead through our doors all those in need of spiritual or physical nourishment. Dinners are held at St. Paul’s Social Hall. Food prep and setup begins 3:00, dinner served at 6:00. Dinner is always free of charge. Family and friends are welcome. Contact Lisa Shifflet at email@example.com or 410-960-4590
Our menu for March 17 is corned beef dinner! All are welcome!
Lenten Book Study
For centuries, Methodists have been known for our hymns. Charles Wesley wrote thousands over his life, some of which are still favorites today. Later generations of Methodists, such as Fanny Crosby, have continued that legacy of hymn writing. The hymns of our faith explore core themes of Christian belief and practice such as Incarnation, Redemption, Repentance, Justification, Sanctification, Prayer, Communion, Dominion, and Christian Perfection.
Please join us for a Lenten Study led by Pastor Doug and Ann Gibbens-Davis that will explore classic hymns that express a faith that sings. The study will begin Sunday, February 18th and continue on February 25th, March 4th, 11th. We will open at 5:30pm with a light potluck dinner and conclude by 7pm. All ages are welcome! Orders for the optional book will be taken on the first meeting.

Pray With Us
Join us every Monday evening at 7pm in St. Paul’s cry room (inside the sanctuary) for our community prayer group. Bring your own prayer requests or pray for others. We welcome all members of the community for an hour of prayer and reflection. To submit a prayer request you can fill out a card in the pews and leave it in the offering plate, or contact Jean Luebke at firstname.lastname@example.org, or one of the pastors. Mark your request public or private. Public requests will be shared with the congregation on Sunday mornings, private requests will stay between the pastors and the prayer circle.
