Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you? And the king will answer them, Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.
–Matthew 25:37-40

We care about our neighbors. Not just next door or across the street, either. We subscribe to the United Methodist slogan “The World Is Our Neighbor.”

We show our love for others in many ways. Here are just a few of the things we do:

  • Feed the Hungry with our Food Pantry. We distribute food monthly to local families, and we’re always looking for help. To find out more, click here or email pantry@stpaulsthorofare.com.
  • House the Homeless by volunteering for our Family Promise ministry. Four times a year we house homeless families in our church, and we need many volunteers for many tasks. For more detailed information visit our Family Promise page. For specific needs and dates email familypromise@stpaulsthorofare.com.
  • Welcome the Stranger. Whether you’re a longtime church member or thinking about visiting, we do our best to welcome everyone with open arms and open hearts. Our greeters provide information and do their best to make visitors comfortable. If you’d like to be a greeter and help us welcome those who come to worship, email ministry@stpaulsthorofare.com. If you’re thinking about visiting St. Paul’s click here for more information.
  • Visiting the Sick and Shut-In is a way to express your Christian concern and bring a little light into what might be a dark time. If you’re interested in doing this on a regular basis, talk with Pastor Dave or email him at pastor@stpaulsthorofare.com.
  • Supporting Mission Projects: Missions are the heart of St. Paul’s. Every single one of us has a heart for missions, whether it’s supporting local missions like the Camden Neighborhood Center or donating to Hurricane Relief through UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Click here for more information on our wide variety of mission & outreach projects, or email ministry@stpaulsthorofare.com.
  • Take a Mission Trip: We take an annual trip to RedBird Mission in Kentucky to help out the poor people of the Appalachian Mountains. There are other opportunities that arise. The pastor is the best contact to make sure you know where help is needed. Email pastor@stpaulsthorofare.com.

Join us in showing love for our neighbors by volunteering for one or more of our outreach ministries. It will touch your heart.
