Supporting the Global Community
St. Paul’s Lutheran supports others around the globe by providing basic necessities for comfort, education, a new child, or an opportunity for work. A list of the supplies needed for each kit is available in the entryway to the left of the sanctuary. We encourage you to contribute supplies as you are able!
The projects below are completed in partnership with Lutheran World Relief (http://lwr.org/)
Imagine having a warm blanket to shield you from cold and rain or provide you with bedding. A simple quilt could also provide shelter as a simple tent, serve as a floor coverings, or a wrap to hold a baby on a mother’s back. Women gather on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to create quilts that are sent all over the world to those in need.
Lutheran World Relief School Kits
Imagine wanting to attend school but not having the ability to purchase needed supplies. Each summer school supplies are gathered by the St. Paul’s community and then sorted into kits for children around the globe.
