San Antonio: St. Paul United Methodist Church

The oldest predominately African American congregation in San Antonio, St. Paul United Methodist Church was developed in 1866 when former slaves and freemen met in private homes. The congregation settled into its present location in 1922 and throughout the 20th century was host to prominent Civil Rights activists, black leaders, and public figures, including Thurgood Marshall, Langston Hughes, and A. Philip Randolph.  The church celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2016.

Today, St. Paul’s warm, multi-generational congregation is committed to worship, outreach and spiritual formation through various ministries.
