We are home to St. Paul's Pre-school.
(Go to "Pre-school" Tab for details).
We provide meeting space for such diverse organizations as the Greater Dover League of Women Voters, Alcoholics Anonymous, the Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club and others.
We feel that supporting people and encouraging them to be responsible for others and for God's world is the right thing to do. We should show appreciation for and the world God has given us.
The Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing:
Once a month, members of St. Paul's volunteer at DIMH, preparing and serving dinner to the men at the shelter. The DIMH shelter has grown from the efforts of the Christ Church outreach chair, Jeanine Kleimo, to care for the homeless men during the bitterly cold winter of 2008. She rallied almost all faith communities in the Greater Dover area to organize and help provide for the needs of these men. Today, after more than three years of sleeping on cots in church social halls, 33 men have a shelter with bunk beds, a kitchen, bathrooms, a laundry room, and a shop. Sobriety is a precondition for staying at the shelter. Shelter guests receive help applying for jobs and getting medical and dental care, and they are provided transportation to appointments.

The Shepherd Place:
St. Paul’s will attempt more focus on this new outreach opportunity.
Shepherd Place is a family shelter in Dover that was founded some 20 years ago by Father Lawrence Hunt and others who felt an acute desire to work to meet the need of those they saw in the Dover area who were homeless. The reason they come through are as varied as the people themselves. The usual stories include domestic violence, substance abuse, and personal tragedy such as a fire. For a full list of their needs, refer to "wish list" on their website, click here.

We at St. Paul's are actively seeking ways to be part of the changing community and to meet its needs.
