St. Paul’s in the Community
On the second Tuesday of every month St. Paul’s parishioners will be found serving meals at Supper House, located in Temple United Methodist Church, in Muskegon Heights. This is one way we can live the commandment of Jesus to feed the hungry.
While Supper House shares space with Mission for Area People, it operates independently under a board comprised of representatives of many area churches, with financial contributions and volunteers from those same churches. A supper meal is offered Monday through Friday nights, often serving well over 100 adults and children each evening. It also includes special celebrations at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
Working together at Supper House offers an opportunity to experience the gratitude and love that comes with serving. Everyone is blesssed!
St. Paul’s has become known for our Blessing Bags filled with some basic necessities which we keep in our cars and at the church to give to someone obviously in need. It may be someone on a corner holding a sign, or simply someone coming to the church door asking for help. Rather than driving by or looking the other way, we can offer a warm greeting and say “I hope this will help”. We may not be able to help financially or in a big way, but we can share God’s love in a way that touches another of God’s children.
FEEDING WEST MICHIGAN FOOD TRUCK
St. Paul’s is partnering with Central United Methodist Church and Mt. Zion Church of God in Christ to bring a food truck spring and fall to hungry people in Muskegon. We all know many hands make light work, and as well as sharing volunteers, and cost, we get to know each other better working side by side. The trucks are part of Feeding America West Michigan, out of Grand Rapids.
ST. PAUL’S PRAYER POLE
St. Paul’s Church is located on the corner of Third and Clay in the heart of old Muskegon. On that corner you will also find our prayer pole inviting people to take a minute to put a prayer on paper, roll it and put into a drilled hole. They eventually are brought into church where we can join in those prayers. Some are seen in our writings as PRAYERS FROM THE POLE. All are welcomed and honored.
