Looking for volunteer opportunities?
At St. Paul, we believe that outreach and mission ministries are a critical part of our Christian life together. We have two teams (Beyond the Walls Team and Justice Team) that plan service projects and volunteer opportunities to serve locally, globally, and at St. Paul.
In odd-numbered years, the Beyond the Walls Team organizes a team to build a Habitat for Humanity House. In even-numbered years, the team hosts a refugee family in partnership with Kentucky Refugee Ministries. 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!
The Resource Center
The Resource Center is open Wednesdays, 10:00am-noon. It provides snacks and assistance for those who have trouble navigating Louisville’s resources.

Canned Food Drive – December Collection

Heifer International – December Collection
During the Christmas season, St. Paul will support Heifer International, an organization which provides agricultural resources for people around the world in order to help them rise out of poverty. At the Living Gift Market, you can take part in a unique gifting experience of purchasing animals (the living gifts) to help end hunger and poverty in the world. You don’t take any animals home, you buy them for people in need. You can purchase animals in a loved one’s name and St. Paul will provide you with a special Christmas card for you to give.
On Sunday, December 3, we’ll kick off our campaign to support Heifer with a breakfast and market in McAdams Hall. Enjoy a free breakfast while you shop in McAdams Hall from10:00-11:00am.
