How do I get to St. Paul UMC?

Largo Location - 1498 Rosery Rd in Largo

Our main campus is located on the northwest corner of Rosery and Highland. This is where we worship, and hold classes and activities. Children and student ministries also meet here. Our church office entrance is on the Rosery side of the building. 

Druid Location - 2039 Druid Rd in Clearwater

Our Druid campus in Clearwater is a satellite location and the home for our Open Arms and Carpenter's Shop Ministries. Food distribution, as well as toy making and other outreach take place here. 

 

Do I need to register for worship in advance?

No, we do not require advance registration. Come and worship with us any Sunday!


Where do we park FOR WORSHIP?

There are entrances to worship on both the Highland and Rosery sides of the building at 9 AM. At 11 AM the Rosery side of the building is locked. Our Highland entrance is a drive thru drop-off location for those who have difficulty with mobility. If you’re able to walk easily, we ask that you love your neighbor by parking in the spaces farther from the building to allow our friends who have trouble walking to park closest to the building. 


What should I wear?

God doesn't have a dress code, and neither do we. You are welcome to wear what makes you comfortable.


Is nursery available?

Children's Ministry is available for infants through fifth grade at both worship times.


Is someone going to call on me in worship?

No. We want you to relax and hear the word of God without being singled out. If you would like more information, we encourage you to visit the Connection Center or ask a greeter or usher for assistance. We also encourage you to sign in on our Connect Card, so that we can answer any questions you may have, pray for you and provide requested information.


Can I take Communion if I am not a Methodist or a member of a church?

Everyone can participate in Holy Communion. The United Methodist Church believes that communion is God's holy meal. The bread and juice are symbols of God's love for us. We celebrate communion during all worship times on the first Sunday of every month. If you are worshiping online we invite you to prepare bread and juice before worship on the first Sunday so you can take communion with us from your home.


How can I give to the church?

You can give or tithe by dropping your gift in the black boxes during either worship, or you can give online securely any time. You may also wish to set up automatic transfers from your account. This can be done online or through your bank.

MORE ABOUT GIVING


WHAT IS A UNITED METHODIST CHURCH?

The United Methodist Church is a global church that opens hearts, opens minds and opens doors through active engagement with our world. We at St. Paul are members of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church, which traces it roots back to the ministry of 18th century reformer and theologian John Wesley. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. 

We invite you to join us and discover for yourself the life-changing power of the Love of God. All are welcome at St. Paul. 

More about UMC Beliefs


Baptism

Baptism is a sacrament. During baptism, God uses water as a vehicle of divine grace. It is the act of God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. We baptize infants, and those people who have never been baptized, who have made the decision to follow Christ and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior.

For more information or to schedule a baptism, contact the church office via email or call 727-584-8165.


Joining

Being a member at St. Paul means that you are becoming a part of our spiritual family. It's more than just believing, it is also belonging. If you are interested in learning more or becoming a member, contact the church office via email or call 727-584-8165. You can also attend our Next Steps gathering to find out more about membership at St. Paul.


Take the Next Step

If you are ready to take the next step in your faith journey by becoming a Christian, being baptized, or becoming a member at St. Paul we invite you to Next Steps.
