Adult Spiritual Formation and Education


St. Paul's seeks to help adults develop spiritually by developing and offering groups and programs that meet their learning needs.

On Going Programs:

Exploring Membership

These one-time gatherings are for people who want to know about the theology, ministry focus and programs at St. Paul's and who want to meet new people and long-time St. Paulians. Sessions are provided at least four times a year.

Disciple Bible Studies

St. Paul's forms new classes as desired. In the past, several Disciple Bible Studies have been offered each year. These offer "beginning" level studies as well as more advanced coverage of the Bible, both held over a 34 week period.

The Durham Bible class

This adult bible study meets each Sunday morning at 9:30 using the Cokesbury Adult Bible Series.

Small Home Groups

These group of between eight and 12 adults form for a variety of reasons and for varying terms. Go to the Small Home Group page for more details.

United Methodist Women

We are a community of women. Our purpose is to know God, to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative, supportive fellowship, to expand concepts of mission, through participation in the Global Ministries of the Church.

Other Periodic Classes

Many special classes are formed during the year to study specific topics. These classes may be single meetings or may run over several weeks.

Music Ministries

Music is a big part of the worship experience at St. Paul's. Many opportunities exist for both group and solo offerings. See the Music page for more details.
