There are many opportunities for Ministry at St. Paul's. From teaching Sunday School, to ushering, serving at the altar, to serving as a host in our "Hands of Faith" ministry, there are gifts that you can bring to help us serve God and our neighbors.
Hands of Faith
A part of the Family Promise, "Hands of Faith" is a group of more than twenty faith communities that house and feed homeless families in the Beloit area. Twelve churches rotate as "host" sites, where our families are housed and fed each night. Members of other congregations assist with meal preparation, visit with our guests, and drive families to our Day Center on Bluff Street. Please plan on joining us and helping as we host families from April 2 to April 9, 2017.
Olde Rectory Sales and Service
This group of volunteers provides a service to the community as they run house and estate sales in the Greater Beloit Area. The home owner or the estate receive 2/3 of the gross proceeds from the sale, Olde Rectory Sales receives 1/3. Anyone interested in volunteering to help (there is much preparation that goes on before a sale) should contact Theresa Stott at 365-4381.
St. Paul's is a long time member of Caritas, an ecumenical ministry in the Stateline area that provides food and clothing to those in need. Several members of the parish volunteer at Caritas. The loose plate offering the first Sunday of each month is given to Caritas, and the parish actively supports the Thanksgiving food basket fundraising each year as well as the Feinstein Challenge drive every year during March and April.
Meals on Wheels
The Meals on Wheels program provides nutritious meals to the homebound, elderly, ill and disabled in the Greater Beloit area, as it has done for the past 32 years. Members of the parish have served with the program since it began in 1971. For many years, St. Paul's has staffed one route for one week out of every month, beginning on the third Sunday of the month. Serving as a driver/delivery person is a wonderful way to get involved in a very rewarding ministry.
