Mission and Outreach

What Jesus says about Serving Others

"Whatever you have done to the least of these, you have done unto Me." - Matthew 25:40
"You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13


We are active in supporting a wide variety of outreach programs and missions...

These range in scope from local projects like the Montgomery County Christmas Store and the Montgomery County Emergency Assistance Program to international outreaches through organizations such as the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, and others.


 St. Paul Unitied Methodist Church is always looking for:

  • Unmet needs in the NRV
  • People who want to help others - even if you're not sure about church
