St. Paul's Lutheran Church, as well as other Lutheran churches nationwide, host a day of community service on Sunday, beginning with a complimentary breakfast at 9 a.m. followed by a worship service at 10 a.m. at the church on 407 S. Saturn Ave., in Clearwater.
Volunteer opportunities will begin at Grace House, which is a ministry of Religious Community Services, Habitat for Humanity; the Homeless Emergency Project, and Lutheran Services of Florida, starting at 11 a.m. for all those who are looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the community.
The project at St. Paul's consists of painting two fences and some pressure washing, organizing closets and possibly the repair of a shed. Grace House is able to provide emergency shelter to homeless families who have children for up to eight weeks with apartment-style emergency shelter.
Volunteers are needed at Habitat for Humanity to work from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their Betty Lane job site. Tools and training will be provided, no experience or carpentry skill is necessary.
The Homeless Emergency Project also needs volunteers to cook and serve lunch for the hungry at the project's dining facility. The meals will be prepared on Saturday and then will be served after Sunday worship service.
Lutheran Services of Florida helps by providing opportunities for needy families in finding aid and developing skills to help them remain together. With the counseling given, they provide layette bags that contain an outfit, small toy, socks and shoes, as well as other small items for children 6 months to 4 years old.
Volunteers are also able to donate needed items or funding, as well as help in assembling the bags provided.
