Central is in the city for good. This means we serve our neighbors in a variety of ways.
Below is a list of ways in which we volunteers can support our ministries and help to serve our neighbors.
Earth Day City-Wide Cleanup
Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
We will be picking up litter and cleaning the grounds at Indian Mounds Regional Park Lookout, at 10 Mounds Blvd, St Paul, MN 55106. We will meet in the parking lot inside the park (there is ample parking). Supplies of bags and gloves will be provided by the City of St. Paul, but you are welcome to bring your own gloves if you wish. Snacks will be provided. Come when you can, leave when you must.
Mary Hall Lunch Servers
The Coordinated Mission Committee has scheduled volunteer opportunities to serve the Saturday lunch meal at Mary Hall several times this year. You can sign up for one or all lunch dates, including March 9, May 11, July 13, September 14 and November 9, 2019. Mary Hall is part of Catholic Charities and is located at 438 Dorothy Day Place, St. Paul, MN 55102.
Sunday Coffee Servers
These hospitality volunteers help create a fellowship experience for Sunday worship members and guests. Coffee makers help prepare and serve refreshments before worship services while coffee servers assist after worship serving refreshments during the fellowship hour.
Sunday Worship Usher
Ushers are the patrons of hospitality, helping to ensure members and visitors have all that they need to enjoy a positive worship experience.
Sanctuary / Pew Organizer
Sign up as individuals, a pair, or a team. This is a good fit for anyone, especially families, introverts, retirees, or small groups, and timing is flexible to the volunteer's schedule. You set your schedule to complete!
Check that each pew rack has Bibles and Hymnals organized.
Offering envelopes, visitor, information and prayer request cards are restocked.
Each pew slot should have a functioning pen.
Hidden trash is removed.
Volunteers help in sorting and organizing Martha's Closet donations, as well as working with clients during their shopping experience.
Project Home Shelter
Each November, Central opens its doors as an evening shelter for homeless people in the community. This is undertaking requires numerous volunteers to fill several areas of need. We are currently in need of many people to help with the November 2019 shelter.
Wednesday Lunch Service
Volunteers work with Chef Barb Westman to help with meal prep, service, and clean up for our Wednesday community meal event.
Deck the Halls
Join us typically during the first weekend in December to decorate the church for Christmas!
Thank you to our 2019 volunteers! Next year’s event sign up will go live in late 2019 to assist with rehearsal reception, musician dinners, ticket sales and ushering.
