There are many ways to help within and beyond the walls of St. Paul’s.
Ongoing service opportunities

Sundays following 10:00 a.m. service – Choir rehearsal. No previous musical experience needed. All are welcome.
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Every Tuesday morning at 9:30 throughout the year a faithful group led by Gina Nelson gathers to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the children who come to the daily noonday meal at Kate’s Kitchen. The leadership at Kate’s noticed that a number of kids come to that free meal, and they thought it would be good to offer them a sandwich to go in case there wasn’t much to eat later in the day. Members of St. Paul’s stepped up and offered to take Tuesdays and have been providing this little boost for some time.
Donations of bread, jelly, peanut butter, and plastic sandwich bags are always appreciated.
Prayer shawls and baby blankets are available in the church to take to those who need them.
