Ministries of Serving at St. Paul Church
As God's people we are called to serve!

Homework Club - Twice weekly, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, ten elementary school children gather for the "St. Paul Homework Club" that provides tutoring, nurture and recreation. Grant money was obtained to help run this ministry. Cathy Honer coordinates an enthusiastic group of volunteers from the congregation and community.

Shoreline Soup Kitchen – St. Paul Church plans, prepares and serves the brunch meal at the Soup Kitchen in Old Lyme several times a year. Under the leadership of Linda LaBrec volunteers gather at the Congregational Church at 8 am to begin preparation for the meal. The third Wednesday of each month St. Paul serves the noon meal at Grace Episcopal Church in Old Saybrook. Bill Neuman coordinates this group of volunteers.

Shawl Ministry - Knitters and crocheters meet once a month, on the third Saturday at 9:30AM, to knit their prayers into shawls for those who need the spiritual warmth and comfort they offer. Ketty Klein (860-395-1738) coordinates activities.

ELCA World Hunger – Each year St. Paul Church recognizes 5 World Hunger Sundays. A special offering is taken with donations being sent to ELCA World Hunger or the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries.

St. Paul Church is also involved in a variety of other ministries serving in the community. The congregation sponsors a Red Cross Blood Drive every February. We also seek to relieve domestic and global poverty and hunger through our work with Lutheran Disaster Response and the Lutheran World Federation. St. Paul is supportive of the HOPE partnership seeking to build affordable housing in the Old Saybrook Area.
