St. Paul’s United Church of Christ is called to be a child-centered and service-oriented church that believes God is still speaking! We are dedicated to deepening our faith and love for God and creation through questioning, critical thinking, spiritual growth, and service to our sisters and brothers.
You are invited to join us in this vital ministry. Drop in one Sunday morning at 10:30 am and join us in worship with lively jazz and prophetic preaching. Join us in serving the people of New Orleans by volunteering with one of our Partner in Ministry organizations.
St. Paul's Mission Statement
Our mission is to create opportunities for all people to become disciples of Christ through expansive, multicultural, and vibrant worship of God; through providing educational opportunities which encourage critical thinking and questioning; through offering spiritual growth groups which allow for vulnerability, doubt, and imperfection; and through providing opportunities to work towards the Kingdom of God on Earth through service to the City of New Orleans, its children, and the World.
