Casserole Brigade

There are times when a little thing, like a nice meal, can mean a great deal to someone. This group was formed as an outreach to St. Paul’s congregation and community families that could use a little help. If you like to cook and enjoy helping others who have had an illness, surgery, a new baby, or other life event; please consider helping the Casserole Brigade by preparing a meal for families who could use a little extra help. If interested in this outreach, or if you know of someone who may need help, please contact Sherri Clark at stpaulscasserolebrigade@gmail.com.

Code Purple

During the coldest nights of winter, churches in the Newark Homeless Coalition operate an overnight sanctuary called “code purple.” When it’s our turn, we provide a light supper, warm bedding, beverages and a simple breakfast for the homeless who need to get out of the cold. Donations of food and supplies are needed.  Volunteers take different watches from 5:30 PM to 6 AM to ensure that everyone is safe and well cared for.
