Thank you for visiting the website of St. Paul’s UMC in Parkersburg, WV. We are a historic church with a strong presence in the Parkersburg Downtown community. It is our desire to love and care for our neighbor no matter their status in society. 
As of December 4th 2022, the members of St. Paul’s UMC voted unanimously to join the Reconciling Ministries Network. We affirm the following statement.
“We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.”
We invite you to join us for service live in person or on YouTube at the following link:
