Sunday School for Children and Youth/Teens

Sunday School meets every Sunday during the school year, except on the first Sunday of the month which is a family service (all family members welcome), and the fifth Sunday when we celebrate joint worship with Mt. Carmel UMC. Sunday School is for children 3-12 years old and for older youth/teens. (See more about Youth/Teens, below.)

Adult Education

We hold adult study groups for Mt. Carmel and St. Paul Churches and all are invited to attend. Classes are announced through the weekly bulletin.Please sign up for the study by emailing Pastor Jim (jgpugh46@msn.com), or leaving a message on St. Paul’s office recorder (301-963-2185).


The church's youth/teens participate in a range of activites from pizza and movie socials to community service to attending retreats. We welcome and encourage all youth/teens to join in, whether you attend our church or not.
Sunday School (see above) for youth/teens explores topics that are engaging and appropriate for their age group.
