Adult Education

St. Paul's strong Adult Education program offers a variety of short- and long-term classes throughout the year. We seek to feed those hungry to know more about God, the church, and the world. Our opportunities are developed by Meg Baker, Director of Christian Education, in close collaboration with the Adult Education Committee, Rev. Adam B. Snell, Rev. Kate Mackereth Fulton, and Youth Pastor Micah Smartt.

Museum of the Bible

St. Paul’s has secured a block of tickets for the Museum of the Bible, in Washington, DC on Saturday, August 18. All tickets have currently been claimed, and we're looking forward to the trip! 

Feel free to contact Meg Baker at or 301-933-7933 ext. 104 with any questions.

The church van is available for those who wish to ride from St. Paul's, departing the church parking lot at 9:00 a.m.; the total cost for both the van ride and museum ticket is $15. The cost of the museum ticket alone is $10, and those wishing to travel another way are welcome to meet us at the Museum. (The museum is 3 blocks from L’Enfant Plaza Station.) To cover your ticket and/or transportation cost, please make checks payable to St. Paul's UMC with "Bible Museum" on the memo line.

The museum controls access by "timed entry" tickets, but once inside, we are able to stay as long as we wish - or until we need to board the bus for our ride back! Please note, food and drink may be purchased at one of the restaurants on site at the Museum. 

See for more about this new museum.
