So what does the Outreach Board do???
The Board of Outreach is responsible for in-reach, outreach, and missions.
What is In-Reach?
In-reach is focusing on and nurturing our congregation’s members. A few main areas are:
Fellowship, coming together for support, comfort, and fun (yes, usually food is involved!)
Assimilation of New Members, welcoming and integrating every new member into our church family
- Labor of Love Directory, promoting church and school family businesses.
What is Out-Reach?
Out-reach is sharing Jesus with our community and attracting new people to St. Paul. Ways we do this are:
- Greeters and visitor follow up
- Welcome packets
- St. Paul website
- Publicity (banners, newspaper ads, etc.)
- Robin Hood Festival booth and prayer booth
- St. Paul School Ministry Fair
- Presence at Easter egg hunt and Live Nativity
What are Missions?
Missions are those that show God’s love to others in our community, our state and the world through service & financial support. Some of the missions St. Paul does are:
- Hope Diner
- Good Samaritan Saturday
- Habitat for Humanity
- St. Paul food/gift card assistance
- Mission to Grace & Mercy churches (Juarez Mexico)
- Wash Jo – Mission of Hope (Kenya)
