Outreach Ministries/Missions

We Care about the World

Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation. —Mark 16:15

The Outreach program at St. Paulís provides an opportunity for everyone to experience God's mission first hand. God has called us, and the story of our salvation is truly good news.

There are millions of God's people all over the world who have never been exposed to the story of Jesus' love. We seek to act as Christís representatives in the world and introduce the love of Jesus to unbelievers.

Three ways you can become involved in our Outreach program:

• Pray— The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Luke 10:2

• Give— Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. Luke 6:38

• Go— And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. Matthew 19:29

Family Promise

The mission of Family Promise Ė 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 outreach to our neighbors.

We encourage you to become personally and financially involved in all our missions projects and opportunities. As John Wesley said:

Do all the good you can, By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can, In all the places you can,
At all the times you can, To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
