at St. Paul's
Join us for our Spirit-filled worship every Sunday at 10am in the sanctuary.
We are a spirited, compassionate community of faith living in covenant with God and each other through understanding and practicing the teachings of Christ.
We Believe We Are Called to:
Welcome all, regardless of background, lifestyle or ability celebrating our unity;
we accept others as we find them, or as they may become.
Serve our neighborhood, our country, and our world, minister to those in every state of life, and to bind up the broken and heal the hurt.
Work for justice and peace in the fact of inequity and strife.
Honor our community's rich historical and Wesleyan traditions.
Grow personally in knowledge and love.
Be a safe space and quiet center in a troubled, weary world.
ST. PAUL'S congregation first gathered in 1800 at the then State House, now called the Old Colony House, just up from Charles Street in Washington Square. As the congregation grew, construction of a church building began in 1806, even before a site was chosen. Adding distinction to St. Paul’s history is the fact it is believed to be the first Methodist Church in the world with a steeple and a bell - prior Methodist congregations met and worshiped in meeting house style buildings and in homes. St. Paul’s is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and Landmarks. In 1987 we were designated United Methodist Historic Site No. 195. In the year 2000, St. Paul’s celebrated 200 years of Christian service and witness.
Rev. Jaegil Lee, PhD.
Since 2015, St. Paul's United Methodist Church has been joyfully lead by Rev. Jaegil Lee, whose open-hearted nature and devotion to the radical love of Christ has expanded both church membership and St. Paul's ministry in the Newport community. Jaegil, attuned to the needs of our community, has lead St. Paul's in becoming a recovery-oriented church, open to anyone regardless of where they come from or where they are on the journey of their life. In 2019, he was fully ordained in the Methodist tradition.
