Outreach

 

St. Paul's has a strong history of Mission and Outreach. Although we may not be a mega-church we are mega-mission minded for we know that we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. We invite you to be a part of our Outreach Ministries!

Stop in the Narthex to see how you can get involved helping St. Paul’s Mission and Outreach.


ADOPT A FAMILY
Once again, we will be supporting the MOT area with adopting 15 families through the
Neighborhood House. Please purchase $25 Walmart Gift Cards to contribute to each individual family member by Sunday, December 12th. Thanks so much for your generous support in this important mission.
 
NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE
Here are a few suggestions for filling our food/toiletries pantry: 
Pasta; Pasta Sauce; Small Peanut Butter; Small Jelly; Tuna or Hamburger Helper; and Mac'n Cheese
 
DEEP ROOTS MISSION
Nadine Johnson & Karen Ellis continue to work with the “Deep Roots” mission. This group works with families who are disconnected through homelessness and provides transitional shelter and other services to families in need. They need your help as they continue to contact members of the church to help with making meals once a month feeding approximately 50+ individuals. Here’s hoping you will be able to help us with this very important and necessary mission. Thanks so much!

POSTAGE STAMPS FOR PRISON MINISTRY
We have an opportunity to do a simple task to assist a prison ministry offered by one of our own Deaconesses, Patricia Marks. There will be a container in the Narthex in which you to place your postage stamps.
 
WAWA FOOD PICKUP SERVANTS NEEDED (On-Hold)
We need servants to pick up food at the WAWA on 299 every other week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:45 AM. It takes about an hour to pick it up and then bring to church and bag it. Please contact Dawn Buckworth if you can help at dawn.buckworth@verizon.net
 
VISITATION TEAMS 
Sometimes it is the face-to-face encounter with folks of the community of faith that remind us of the importance of connection. We are in need of folks for visitation, not just for homebound or hospitalized, but for general outreach. Spending time with our sisters and brothers, praying with them, sharing the events of congregational life and administering the Sacraments, changes us as well as offering the Spiritual sustenance for those who cannot get to worship. We already have faithful teams who offer the Eucharist, but we also need teams to visit our congregation on a rotating basis. If you would like to be part of this important ministry opportunity, please contact the office at stpodessa@stpaulsodessa.org.
 
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
As part of our partnership with SLE this year, we will continue to collect Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education. This is an easy and fun way to earn our school cash. There is a collection box in the kitchen.
