Middle School Mission Week

We would love to invite you this coming week to join us in a Middle School Mission Week: Stay at Home Edition. This week may not be the original programming or schedule that we had planned, but the reality is there are substantial needs in our community and there is so much that we can do right from home. Below we’ve compiled a quick list of ways that you and your family can serve this week!

Along with our week of service, we will dive into understanding who we are as the image bearers of God. Often, we can start serving or volunteering and forget who and whose we are. We are called by, belong to, receive our identity from a loving God. And, because of God’s great love for us, we are to show that love to those around us—both in our families and in our community. This week we will take a look at a familiar story that Jesus tells about a Good Samaritan in Luke 10: 25-36.

We invite you to come along with us each day this week as we look at the Good Samaritan. Click here to download the devotional.

Making Masks

The women of St. Francis in Eureka, MO have received a request to sew COVID-19 masks for St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, MO and are asking for help in meeting this request. The need is great and we know we can count on the good people of the Episcopal Diocese to help. The volunteer coordinator at St. Luke’s stated they will need 5,000 masks per day within the next couple of weeks. More info

The Transition Center of St. Louis is in need of masks if you can help please contact Director of Children’s Education, Mary Beth Tipton at mtipton@csmsg.org.

Make Birthday Cards for ECM

Episcopal City Mission/Kids in Detention volunteers are not able to host birthday parties at the St. Louis County Detention Center but will supply the center with items needed to recognize birthdays, including pizza and birthday cake. All parishioners are invited to make cards with an uplifting bible verse or simple birthday message for youth celebrating birthdays. Please leave cards in the container marked “Birthday Cards for ECM” located underneath the bench in the Page Garden on the north side of the church.

Writing letters of Encouragement

Another way that you can help is by writing letters, a quick note or a simple card to help encourage people during these trying times. Some examples include:

  • Mary Ryder Nursing Home
  • Friends and Relatives
  • First Responders
