What is outreach?
Outreach is what we do to serve people, in word and deed. Our heart overflows with love, truth, and grace as we grow in our personal relationship with Christ. Outreach is that overflow. It’s the love and care we show others because we are so in awe of the love and care Christ shows us. Outreach includes things like missions, giving, and service – all natural products of our faith in Christ.  Continue reading through our outreach opportunities to see where you might feel led to serve others.
City Missions
Our city missionary, Marco van Raalten, serves to connect the Body of Christ in the St. Louis Metro Area to do and be more together than any one church could ever be on its own, through an organization called Together STL  (www.togetherstl.com)

Although Marco can often be found outside our church serving the metro area, he also serves St. Paul’s congregation by connecting them with the city wide unity movement to be on mission locally. He provides opportunities for our congregants to reach out to our neighborhood and seeks to unite the churches in our immediate neighborhood to love God, each other and our community.

He begs us to ask: What can we do together that we can’t do alone?

We participate in both U.S. and global missions in order to spread the good news of redemption through Jesus Christ to all people.  We support missionaries with personal relationships and visits, providing them with prayer, encouragement, and supplies. We have had the privilege of helping oversee an English language camp in France, providing medical assistance to people in South America, completing building repairs for our sister church in Germany, and providing relief in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. We hope you’ll join us on our next trip!
Monthly (4th Monday)
The Life Team at St. Paul’s exists to equip our church to be a gospel-driven champion of life in culture, word, and deed. As a team trained by Churches for Life, we intend to physically and spiritually rescue people who need advocates such as the elderly, unborn, children in the foster care system, and sex-trafficking victims. We do this while demonstrating a consistent life ethic applied from the womb to the tomb. The St. Paul’s Life Team also regularly serves and supports the ThriVe Express Women’s Clinic of St. Louis.  Each January, we recognize Sanctity of Life Sunday and, in October, the National Life Chain in memory of babies lost to abortion.
Weekly (Tuesdays 9a)
This group of women creates beautiful handmade and machine stitched quilts. They love to make quilts for new babies and also for Project Linus and the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides new, handmade blankets to children in need and Quilts of Valor’s mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war, with the comfort and healing of handmade quilts. If you have no quilting skills but would like to serve or learn, there are many different tasks that they would be happy to teach you.
White Cross

They send these kits to meet a variety of needs in different areas but most recently were able to send supplies to the Congo. No craft or sewing skills are necessary to help with this loving service.
