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!

BACK TO SCHOOL BACK PACKS
This has been a great success! Many children will benefit from your very generous contributions and head off to school with their much-needed supplies. A great beginning to their new year in school! Thank You-Sue Holden and Dawn Buckworth
 

NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE
We have a food pantry to which you donate food. Here a few items on which we are low in the food/toiletry’s pantry:
• Water
• Spaghetti
• Spaghetti sauce
• Deodorant
• Toothbrushes/toothpaste

• Tissues
Donations can be left inside the Church. We look forward to another great year working together to feed the hungry. Thanks to all, Marilyn Hendershot, Family Services Specialist, Neighborhood House, Inc.
 
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!

MOT SENIOR CENTER
MOT Senior Center is accepting items between 8 AM-Noon Tuesday-Thursday. There is a box out front to put items in if they are not there. They are in need of the following: Spaghetti sauce, canned fruit and vegetables, snack size snacks, individual juices, peanut butter, jelly, magazines, word find books, side dishes, cereal, or gift cards to Food Lion for $10 each. 
 
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.
