Helping at Home

In serving others we serve Christ.

Caring Ministry is St. Paul's commission of volunteers who want to reach out and give back to the local and global community. Members plan and carry out many different projects throughout the year to help those in need of physical, emotional, and spiritual care. Willing volunteers are always needed to help see through Jesus' message of love and care for others.

Each October, we join with other neighborhood churches raising money for Church World Service.

DuPage Emergency Shelter
Each week volunteers shop for groceries and bring them to the shelter. In addition, volunteers are needed to shop for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.

Fourth of July Parade for Food Pantry
Everyone loves a parade! It has become an annual Independence Day tradition to push decorated shopping carts through the streets of Villa Park to collect food for the Villa Park/Lombard Pantry.

Hands and Feet Ministry
Each month this ministry provides basic household necessities, personal hygiene and baby items to residents of DuPage County.

Volunteers provide food, shelter and fellowship for homeless people at Etz Chaim in Lombard on the first and fifth Sundays of the month.

Teen Parent Connection
St. Paul Lutheran is a site for Teen Parent Connection, where each Wednesday, young parents gather for a meal, parenting education and support. St. Paul’s role is to provide space and a meal while Teen Parent Connection oversees programming and provides funds for childcare. For more information, visit their website at or call (630) 790-8433.

Villa Park/Lombard Food Pantry
Worshipers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to church for distribution to people in need through the Pantry. St. Paul members make regular deliveries of the collected items to the Pantry.

Walk-In Ministry
St. Paul Lutheran Church actively supports the Walk-In-Ministry of Villa Park/Lombard. Through this ministry, located at First Church of Lombard, emergency assistance is provided for people in need.
