These volunteers gather together each football season to Feed the McNeese State Marching Band were honored for all of their hardwork! Each season, they feed about 100 band members for each of the home games.There are those who grill, those who assemble the box lunches, those who help with drinks and condiments, and those who give hugs. Every one received an apron in appreciation for their great contributions!
As a church, we are joyfully dedicated to helping our community in many ways. We have several local organizations who use our facilities as a meeting place, including several sewing groups and a fly fishing group. GriefShare is also offered usually in the Spring and Fall seasons. Donations are collected for the hungry and the homeless. We continually seek ways to share God's love with others.
St. Paul in the Community...
While we are currently unable to meet in person, we have found ways to continue to create beautiful quilts and blankets. The quilts are sent to Lutheran World Relief to be distributed as needed, and the blankets are donated locally to cancer patients, retirement homes, and sometimes even to our own members who have surgery.
Once a year, the colorful blankets and quilts are laid out and create a beautifully vibrant worship service. They are then blessed to bring comfort for the recipients during difficult times.
Erika M. has made several dozen pillowcases for local children awaiting adoption, and wanted to do more. With help from a Thrivent grant, as well as several sewing friends, 20 large duffel bags were assembled over the course of 2 days.

Even while dealing with the destruction of our homes and church Sanctuary, members came together in December to donate several bags of wrapped gifts for local families who were also dealing with storm related devastation.
In turn, Saint Paul members were blessed with gifts of baked goods and home goods from Peace Lutheran Church in Slidell, La. Thank you for your generosity!
