Looking for volunteer opportunities?
At St. Paul, we believe that outreach and mission ministries are a critical part of our Christian life together. Our Beyond the Walls Team plans service projects and volunteer opportunities to serve locally, globally, and at St. Paul.
Throughout the year, the team plans and implements projects that aim to benefit the world we share. There are many Louisville volunteer opportunities to get involved in!
Every Month a Mission
Each month, St. Paul focuses on one or two mission/outreach opportunities. Sometimes these are fundraisers, while others offer volunteer opportunities. Keep an eye on our Every Month a Mission page for updates on our current mission focus.
Before the pandemic, the Resource Center was open once a week to provide hot meals, a clothes closet, small food pantry, showers and bus passes to those in need. While our onsite Resource Center is halted, we still provide food and clothing to those in need who stop by the church on Mondays or Wednesdays between 10am-1pm.
Since the pandemic, we’ve been using our resources to assist other outreach organizations that are actively serving those in need. In June, we launched our Mobile Resource Center, which travels to Fourth Ave UMC to support its Open Door Community Ministry. They serve meals five days per week. On the second Saturday, we are taking the Mobile Resource Center (our bus loaded with clothes, shoes, toiletries, and more) to Fourth Ave UMC to serve their guests. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Sara Ferebee, Director of Communications and Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help out!
We accept donations of shelf-stable foods and clothing (especially men’s clothing) year-round. Donations boxes are located in the Family Life Center lobby and the elevator lobby in the main building.
To make your donation shopping a little easier, you can purchase from our wish lists, which will ship the items directly to the church:

We completed our 13th Habitat House in 2019! Stay tuned for news about future Habitat builds.
