Missions & Community Engagement

And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” - Matthew 25:40

Church & Society

The General Board of Church and Society (GBCS) of the United Methodist Church is one of four international general program boards of the church as set out in The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church 2016. It advocates the gospel of Jesus Christ in the church and in society through ministries of justice and peace. The Board challenges United Methodists to work in areas of important social concerns and develops resources to inform, motivate, and train United Methodists on issues of social justice.

2nd Monday of each month, 7 pm, Room 225, Education Center

New group members are always welcome to join us as we work in areas of important social concern, developing resources to inform, motivate, and train United Methodists on issues of social justice in the society.

Body & Soul

Body & Soul has returned to St. Paul UMC for in-person cooking and serving! Body & Soul is a ministry that provides a hot meal to individuals facing homelessness. FUMCR provides cooks, coordinators, and volunteers to serve every Sunday of the year. 
  ⇒  Cooking teams serve one Sunday each month, from 2-5 pm.
  ⇒  Coordinators serve one Sunday each month, from 3-5 pm, to transport the servers on a church bus.
  ⇒  We hope individuals, families, and groups will consider volunteering on one more Sundays. We have room for eight each week, from 3-5 pm, to ride with the coordinator on a church bus, set up, greet guests as they arrive, provide a devotional, serve food, distribute essentials, and clean up.  SIGN UP ONLINE
