These are unprecedented times and we have to make unprecedented decisions. With the safety of our members in the forefront of our minds, we have CANCELED all face-to-face, in person activities including worship, effective immediately until further notice.
Join us Sunday, March 29, 2020 from 10:30AM to 11:00AM as we offer a Virtual Worship Experience as we encounter God in an awesome new way.
TIPS + RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LOCAL FAITH COMMUNITIES ON COVID-19
AVOID SOCIAL GATHERINGS in groups of more than 10 people. Consider conducting an online/live-streamed weekly/Sunday service if you have not already done so.
TRY ONLINE MEETING SPACES, like Skype and Zoom, for church Bible-study, small groups and other meetings.
DO NOT VISIT nursing home or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical assistance.
PASTORAL CARE - During this time it may be best to offer pastoral care by phone call, text message, FaceTime or Skype, and other technology tools. With social distancing, these will become critical tools for pastors. While it may be your preference to visit the sick and dying in person, in the case of an epidemic with isolation and quarantines imposed, this may be ifficult to impossible.
ENCOURAGE members of your congregations to obtain accurate information about the coronavirus. While some information on social media is accurate there is also plenty of inaccurate information. The CDC and our local health department are committed to providing you the most accurate and timely information.
New Church App
Our church has a new App that helps us to communicate with our members at the touch of a finger.
The app is called FellowshipOne Go and is available in the Google Marketplace as well as Apple App store for FREE download. Once you download the app, if you haven't set up an account, click the new user? Link to create an account at the bottom.
The domain is: stame.fellowshiponego.com
You will then create a username and password.
Once you have established an account you will be able to view your personal giving records and also give electronically to our ministry.
WELCOME TO SAINT PAUL
“ Welcome to Saint Paul A.M.E. Church! We are blessed that God has directed our paths to cross. So, above all else we want to express Christ’s love to you with genuine, heartfelt warmth.

We believe you will discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most. We extend ourselves to you to grow, worship, serve, laugh, cry and learn with us as we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth. Our doors are open. Our hearts are open, too. If you’ve been thinking, praying, searching and hoping for a place to belong, We would love to be your church family. Once again we say WELCOME!”
-Pastor Isaiah J. Waddy
St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church began its Christian fellowship and service in 1868, 5 years following the issuance of the historic Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln and only 3 years after the end of the Civil War.
