As a parish and as individuals we are committed to showing forth God's love in the world. Below are some examples of the long-term partnerships we are engaged in around this mission. In addition to these, St. Paul's works to respond to the needs of our neighbors in restorative and creative ways.
Raise the Roof Project is a home repair ministry partnership of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church and St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Mobile, Alabama. Raise the Roof Project is a member of both United Methodist Volunteers in Mission and the ReFrame Association.
Visit the Raise the Roof Website for more information, or contact the church office or the Rev. Lydia Johnson to get involved.
Wheel A Meal is a volunteer service that provides meals, Monday through Friday, to anyone unable to prepare meals for themselves.
Our clients receive a full meal, and a sandwich for the evening meal. There is a reasonable fee and help is available for anyone in financial need. Many of our clients are homebound for one reason or another and are long-term recipients but we do deliver to clients on a short term basis, recovering from an illness or surgery who cannot prepare the meals themselves but would like to maintain their independence.
Wheel A Meal is supported by these four Spring Hill area faith communities:
- St. Ignatius Parish
- St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
- Spring Hill Baptist Church
- Spring Hill Presbyterian Church
Wilmer Hall Children's Home is a non-profit faith-based organization that has been serving young people in need in Mobile, Alabama since 1864. Wilmer Hall serves children and young adults through several programs that provide tutoring, on-campus living, and other tools needed to succeed.
Please visit the Wilmer Hall Website for more information.
As with our local outreach, St. Paul's approaches mission trips with enduring partnerships in mind. In the past this has meant yearly trips to the Dominican Republic for adults and to the area surrounding Sewanee, TN for youth. Our most recent plans to worth with the Episcopal Church in Navajoland in Ft. Defiance, AZ were sadly canceled due to COVID-19. We look forward to future possibilities when travel becomes feasible again.
