St. Paul's Outreach
For the last several years, long time members Dr. Pete and Helen Dykeman and Master Chef Fritz Sonnenschmidt have headed up a wonderful fundraiser, which allows financial assistance to affiliates of the ELCM from far away lands! With the help of many, an authentic German Dinner is open to the community once a year and it has resulted in sell- out crowds! The end result is an opportunity to help many in need, in Africa.
Further efforts of outreach more locally over the last 20 years include bake sales and soup sales as fundraisers for specific causes, clothing, food, pet food and monetary donations during times of sudden natural disasters, bringing homemade meals to the infirm, Thanksgiving baskets and "Adopt-a-family" Christmas programs to help families in need. during the holidays.
St. Paul's also has a Prayer Shawl Ministry where shawls and lap robes are made for those with special needs of all kinds, by the women of our church.
