Service and Outreach Cluster

  • Feed My Sheep

    At 8:00 am on the third Saturday of each month Second Harvest delivers to St. Paul’s its (large quantity) food order to be given away.  A group of volunteers form an assembly line to fill boxes with enough food for a family of four.  Beginning at nine o’clock, the boxes are put into the cars that have lined up to receive it.  Each month about 90 families are fed in this manner as we do what Jesus commanded – “Feed my sheep.”  

  • Boy Scouts

    St. Paul’s Troop 15 is the oldest troop in what used to be the Chehaw Council.  It was first chartered in 1939.  The first Eagle Scout from Saint Paul’s was in the 1940s.  Since that time, many of our Scouts have earned the Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in scouting.  Troop 15 is a very active troop and works to give our youth the tools and to teach the morals that will make them leaders in the future.  

  • The Clothing Room

    Was established in 1987 and has evolved as school requirements have changed. The ministry purchases uniforms and other needed clothing, i.e., socks and underwear, for school children chosen by the school administrators and teachers, in five elementary schools in Albany.  

  • Barney's Corner

    Was dedicated in October 2011, is a space in the southeast corner of the Lucy Walters Memorial Garden for the spreading of pets’ ashes during at least two special services per year. It is also a fund that has supported animal victims from natural disasters around the country.  

  • Barney's Run for Warriors

    This is a pre-qualifier for a full marathon, 10k, and 5k race hosted by St. Paul’s with proceeds going to the training of service dogs for wounded warriors, who usually are dealing with Post Traumatic Stress.  St. Paul’s partner in the run is Deerfield-Windsor School (cross country team) and has enjoyed considerable volunteer support from the Marines attached to the Marine Corps Logistics Base.
