Mission & Outreach ~ Engaging in local, national, and international justice work

Feed My Starving Children

Youth and adults from St. Paul’s UCC support Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit Christian organization that packs meals formulated especially for starving children around the world and when disaster relief is needed. Volunteers help several times of year. Please click here to see images of our members at FMSC's Eagan facility.


CROP Hunger Walk

This program also addresses hunger and offers its compassionate work through the Minnesota Council of Churches and Church World Service. SPUCC members of a wide range of ages participate in the Walk every fall. In 2019, the dozen walkers on our team raised about $1,400 to fight hunger locally and worldwide.

 


Habitat for Humanity

Each summer, as part of a local group of churches and synagogues organized as the Interfaith Builders, St. Paul’s UCC participates in a build to help meet housing needs for residents in and around the Twin Cities. We raise funds, build, and cook for volunteers as a way of supporting this outstanding mission program. H4H makes a significant difference for every family that benefits from this affordable housing mission program. Construction experience isn't necessary, just a desire to help provide a good home for someone, a stable environment for children, and stability in the neighborhood.

Back Bay Mission

In January 2015 and then again in 2016, people from our church community joined a 25-strong contingent from the Minnesota Conference UCC who spent a week helping to rebuild houses damaged by storms at Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, Mississippi. They returned to tell stories of their trips and the good work being done at Back Bay. 


Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul
formerly the Saint Paul Area Council of Churches

Guided by Christ’s example, Interfaith Action builds a more just and compassionate society. We connect congregations, faith communities, and civic organizations to overcome poverty, promote peace, and dismantle racism and other barriers that divide our community. St. Paul’s UCC generously supports many mission programs through Interfaith Action. You can learn more about this great organization at http://interfaithaction.org/.


Our Church's Wider Mission

Our congregation extends its ministry through the national setting of the United Church of Christ by contributing financially to Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM). We're also a 5-for-5 congregation, meaning we support all four of the UCC's special offerings in addition to OCWM: Neighbors in Need, One Great Hour of Sharing, Strengthen the Church, and the Christmas Fund. Through our OCWM commitment, we make a difference nationally and internationally. Learn more about our wider church by visiting www.ucc.org.
