St. Paul’s is committed to service by attendees’ work outside the church in the greater Albuquerque area. As United Methodists, it is our responsibility to share God’s word through our community efforts and individual examples to add new and dedicated followers of Jesus Christ.
We come close to a dangerous word: Boring. We bore each other when we fail to discover fresh ways to live, to worship, to explore God’s heart together and to engage our neighbors. We must achieve more than ‘just doing church’ and we have to go outside our comfort and outside the church walls to connect with people.”
HOME BOUND MINISTRIES
This ministry reaches out to those confined to their residence or in a nursing home.
Volunteers with Homebound make personal visits, phone calls and send cards.
Volunteers work to bring some joy and activities to St. Teresa Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center residents. St. Paul's participants host bingo 2:30-3:30 p.m. Tuesdays and provide refreshments and birthday recognition at the same times, the first and third Thursdays monthly. The Auxiliary members also provide Christmas gifts, holiday recognition and cards to residents.
The Auxiliary monthly meetings are 9:30 a.m. each third Thursday in the St. Paul's Annex.
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
The First Thursday of every month The Prayer Shawl Ministry gathers together to share and help one another out. This ministry is an opportunity to learn and use your knitting and crocheting talents.
The shawls are blessed during Sunday Services and loaned to comfort anyone who seeks the loving presence of God to embrace them when facing a difficult situation or uncertain future outcome.
It is a wonderful thing to be wrapped in the warmth of God's Love, why not share it!
Let's be a blessing to one another and those in need.
CHRIST WOMEN UNITED
The CWU is an ecumenical group of Christian women – Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox and other Christian traditions – witnessing to unity and faith in Jesus Christ. They are part of a half million women in 1,200 local units in 50 states. The group is active in many youth, unity and familial causes.
The Albuquerque unit meets the first Friday monthly for fellowship and mission. Location of the meetings rotates between member churches. The group sponsors collection projects of goods to support local community agencies and essential needs for babies, students and the needy.
We are an eclectic gathering of men who know our roles in life and seek to reach new voices while supporting vital SP and community activities.
The group meets at 8:30 a.m. the first Saturday monthly in Chapman Hall.
