Nurture Ministries

We Care about You

So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves… 1 Thessalonians 2:8

Our Nurture Ministry seeks to reach those in need of healing and wholeness as well as to facilitate growth in people’s relationships. Nurture involves caring for God’s family in our community— our own members and others in our general vicinity. We seek to care for others by supporting them in their unique, individual paths to spirituality and encouraging them to become fully involved in the life of the church.

Some specific nurture ministries for our community are:

Family Promise
The mission of Family Promise – Interfaith Hospitality Network of Gloucester County is to provide homeless families an opportunity to achieve stability by providing shelter, food, case management, and hospitality while simultaneously utilizing resources within local congregations and the community.

For four weeks each year, our congregation provides hospitality, overnight accommodations, and food for the program's homeless children and their families. We are greatly blessed by this ministry.

Alcoholics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

There are two weekly AA meetings at St. Paul’s, Mondays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Check our calendar to confirm dates & times.

Narcotics Anonymous
The vision of NA is: Every addict in the world has the chance to experience our message in his or her own language and culture and find the opportunity for a new way of life.

Three local groups meet weekly at St. Paul's, Tuesday at 7 p.m., women's group Wednesday at 7 p.m. and men's group Thursday at 8 p.m. If you struggle with addiction, the group might be just what you need. Be sure to check our calendar to confirm dates & times.

Parish Visitors

Acts 6:1 tells us, “In those days when the number of disciples was increasing the Grecian Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked.” So, in order that no one was overlooked, the twelve met and chose seven men who were full of the “Spirit and wisdom” to turn the responsibility of visitation over to them.

In that same spirit we have established the volunteer ministry of “parish visitor” at St. Paul’s. The duties include visiting the homebound and nursing homebound on a regular basis. Visitors share the latest news of friends and church events, pray, and offer our heartfelt love and concern for each of our shut-ins.

The pastor covers emergencies and hospital visits.

Food Pantry

St. Paul's is home to our own food pantry, open to the public on the second & fourth Wednesdays of every month from 9 to 11 a.m.

Check our calendar to confirm dates & times.
