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.
During the month of January, the St. Paul Seniors will collect diapers for the Maternal Infant Health Outreach Workers (MIHOW) program at Henderson Settlement. In 1982, a Vanderbilt University program for child development in Appalachia expanded into the MIHOW program, which now serves families in the Appalachian area of five states. The program has served more than 12,000 families.
Come work along with Pastor Darren and get St. Paul’s building looking great. On Saturday, January 27, from 9:00am-2:00pm, lend a hand with some painting, small repairs, or replacing ceiling tiles. Lunch will provided.
Let Angela Brooks, Director of Community Outreach, know if you can help by emailing her at email@example.com or calling 502-459-1595.
On Tuesday, February 27, the St. Paul Seniors will make activity quilts for folks with Alzheimer’s or cognitive issues. When a person with Alzheimer’s uses the quilt it relaxes their mind, exercises hand muscles, and helps focus their attention.
Meal Packing for the Hungry
The St. Paul Children’s and Beyond the Walls teams are hosting a mission project to feed the hungry. Last year we packed over 10,000 meals to be shipped all over the world. We will be packing meals at the Love the Hungry Warehouse at 4209 Gardiner View Avenue on March 17 at 9:00am. This mission opportunity will last for approximately an hour. If you want to help sign up online or at the Information Center by March 11.
Open Door Ministry
4th Avenue United Methodist provides meals for people in need every week. To aid in their ministry, St. Paul is helping them prepare, serve, and clean for lunch every second Saturday from 10:30am to 1:30pm. 4-6 people are needed every second Saturday. Sign up as an individual or group, sign up online.
