Fellowship, Service, and Outreach
Faith in Action Committee: The Faith in Action Committee oversees all the ways in which our congregation can serve the community and the world. It is an expression of our Christian caring for each other. The committee meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
Blood Donor: Blood Donors will be available to donate when the Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank comes to St. Paul's and perhaps at other times when the need for blood is great.
Changing Lives Homeless Shelter: Volunteers work at the Shelter run by the Hanover Area Council of Churches. Volunteers are needed to check residents in each evening, stay overnight and then to help the following morning to check the residents out. The shelter runs year round.
Clothing Bank Helper:Volunteers are needed to work at the Clothing Bank of the Hanover Area Council of Churches building (2nd Floor) on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9:00 a.m. and 12 noon. Volunteer for as many hours as you desire. Work is sorting clothes or desk work.
Fellowship of Prayer: Members of this fellowship are willing to pray regularly for the needs of others. Each week a prayer list is provided for distribution. You are asked to remember this list of people in your daily prayers.
Hospital Visitor: These volunteers provide visits to members of the congregation who are in the Hanover Hospital. You will be placed on a schedule and assigned a week at a time. We ask that you visit the hospital once during your assigned time to see our church members who are there.
Meals on Wheels Volunteer: Volunteers help to deliver a noon time meal to those in need.
Sewing Group: This group meets on the third Tuesday of each month to make quilts and bed pads for needy people. No sewing experience is necessary. We will train any willing volunteer.
Knit One, Bless Two Prayer Shawl Ministry
P.A.L. Volunteer: The P.A.L (Provide-A-Lunch) is a program to provide a free meal on a daily basis to anyone who needs it. The meal is served by a different church each day. We have four teams that make and serve the lunch at the Hanover Area Council of Churches building on a rotating basis. You will be placed on one of those teams and serve once every twelve weeks. Volunteers must be available on a Friday morning for this ministry.
Soup Deliverer: These volunteers deliver soup to those who because of illness or perhaps special events in their life could use a pre-prepared meal. Volunteers pick up a list and the soup at church and deliver as they are able during their assigned week.
Shut In Visitor: These visitors are assigned one or more of our homebound members to visit on a monthly basis simply to bring love and concern from the congregation.
Sisters in Faith : One Saturday a month for breakfast (September through May)
This group is open to all women of the congregation and their female family members and friends. The group meets once a month on a Saturday morning for breakfast, fellowship and conversation. The purpose is to grow closer to one another as we grow closer to God while remaining open and welcoming to new faces and ideas. Topics of discussion evolve around books or issues that affect our daily lives. A fall weekend retreat is also offered.
Men In Mission: The Men in Mission group is dedicated to grow our faith in God and to love others. From September through May we meet on the fourth Saturday of every month for breakfast at the Railside Restaurant here in Hanover at 9:00 AM. We have a short business meeting, a program/speaker, or a short Bible Study. We also sponsor various programs to raise funds to help kids go to camp. We invite you to become involved and help us serve our congregation and community. Everyone is invited.
