St. Paul Outreach Center

Community Welcome!

Who We Serve

The St. Paul Outreach Center is a resource for all in our Midway neighborhood!

We want to connect with you—whether you have lived in the Midway area your whole life and your kids are growing up here too, or if you are a new immigrant or a neighbor in need of connecting to household necessities. 

Volunteers are members of St. Paul area LCMS churches, schools, and Concordia University, St. Paul.

The primary focus of the St. Paul Outreach Center is to serve and share God’s love with new immigrants to St. Paul and other neighbors in the Midway area, as well as partnering with CSP’s international student ministry.

What’s Happening

During the winter months, we meet inside (gym, game room, study space) and currently offer activities like games (foosball, board games), practicing futsal and basketball, and homework help on most Wednesdays around 4:30 pm. Families or students (with permission forms) are welcome each week!

We will be hosting free community meals seasonally on Wednesdays at 5:30pm. These meals will be served in the lower level of the Outreach Center.

Could you use English practice or family resources, free music classes?

We want to hear from YOU! Let us know what would be a good fit in our community!
