God's vision is that His Church wouldn't be a collection of people, but a connection of people-one to another. "Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you." Matthew 13:14-15. Call 734.676.1565 if you would like information or want to be part of any of these ministries.
Hospital / Homebound
St. Paul provides ongoing care and/or visitation to all members and loved ones who are physically unable to be present at St. Paul for worship, programs, and activities. Contact the Church Office if you know of someone who needs care and/or support.
Fish & Loaves
Meals will be provided for members that are temporarily unable to prepare their own food and have no adult or able family to help them. We have many members who have offered to serve in this ministry as providers of meals.
Arthurs’ Closet is a place where those in need in our community can go to obtain clothing for their family, free of charge. St. Paul has agreed to accept clothing donations for the closet in the blue shed at the west entrance to our back parking lot. Please help by donating any clean, gently used, clothing you may no longer need. Just bag it up and drop it in the shed. Your community thanks you.
The goal of St. Paul’s Stephen Ministry is to provide one-on-one Christian care to those who are experiencing difficult and challenging life situations. Stephen Ministers are volunteer members of the church specially trained to listen, support, and pray with you. For information about receiving the care of a Stephen Minister or about being trained as a Stephen Minister.
Christmas Caring Tree
Once a year at Christmas time we give our St. Paul members a chance to provide gifts to those in need. Find the true Spirit of Christmas by participating in this project, which serves not only our members, but also the children of Trenton who are in need.
St. Paul presently offers daily prayers in the form of a E-Prayer Chain. A member simply calls the Church Office with their request for prayers. We then e-mail out the prayers and literally “bombard” the throne of God with prayers daily. Our staff regularly prays for needs of others. If you are interested in being part of our Prayer Ministry call or email the Church Office.
A volunteer core group of nurses meet monthly to assess the health needs of our congregation and plan programs to meet those needs.
Blood Pressure Screening
When was the last time you had your blood pressure checked? The Parish Nurses do Blood Pressure Screen once a month in the Conference room next to the nursery by the Gathering Space.
Periodically groups are formed to help people going through a difficult time in life. We presently have or support Alzheimer's, (an accredited support group for caregivers and family members of Alzheimer’s patients) Grief Programs, and Alcoholics Anonymous. Contact the Church Office at (734) 676-1565 for more information.
