Missions

Serve from home, at St. Paul's, and in the community

Serving God by Serving Others

Having a heart for service is an integral part of our walk with Christ. God has gifted each of us with unique abilities to use for God’s glory. No matter how you feel called to serve, we can help you find a way to serve God by serving others. In addition to serving at St. Paul’s and from home, we also work alongside many partner organizations in our community and around the world. Here are a few of the current opportunities to Serve God by serving others; check them out and get involved!

First Sunday Food Drive

First Sunday Food Drives

Bring donations the first Sunday of each month when you come to worship or any time between 8:30am – 12:15pm to drop them off in the bins inside the door.

The Hub Argentine is requesting vegetable oil, condiments (ketchup, mustard, etc.) and 15 oz. veggies.

JoCo Multi-Service Center is looking for shampoo/conditioner, body wash, hand lotion, hand soap, tissues, paper towels, toothpaste for adults, jelly, spaghetti sauce, meal helpers, rice, condiments, soup crackers, and canned chicken.

Thanks for your commitment to Serve God by Serving Others!

Serve by Packing Pantry Boxes

2nd Tuesday of each month, 1-3pm

Join us in serving God by serving others! We fill pantry boxes at Shawnee Community Services at 67th & Nieman. We wear masks and work out of their pantry room. Please contact Sharry Lockhart to learn more and reserve your spot! 

Blood Drive

Blood Drives

One of the ways we serve God by serving others is through quarterly blood drives at St. Paul’s in partnership with the Community Blood Center.

Please share your gift of life with local hospital patients who need it by donating at our next blood drive on Sunday, February 6, 8am – 12pm at St. Paul’s. Make an appointment now!

Community Blood Center is the primary supplier of blood for local hospitals and has been serving Missouri and Kansas hospitals for more than 60 years. Community Blood Center needs to collect 580 pints of blood every day and over 200,000 pints annually to meet the needs of our local hospitals. An individual within the area that Community Blood Center serves needs a blood transfusion every 4 minutes.
