Martha's Loving Hearts Ministry is a caring ministry that shares God's love with others by offering food to those who are sick, grieving, and more.


Martha's Loving Hearts provided cooked food to people involved with St. Paul who are in need help during a difficult time in their lives. Up to two meals are provided for people dealing with extended illness, after release from hospitalization, after an accident, after the birth of a child or in other situations where a prepared meal can help take one burden off someone who is carrying a heavy load. 

If you're going through a tough situation, or know of someone in our St. Paul family who is, send us an email.

Let us know of any food allergies or dietary needs such as salt-free, sugar-free, or gluten-free. We ask that you give our Martha Ministry team at least 24 to 48 hours notice to prepare food, since many of our volunteers work or have other volunteer commitments.

Hosting Memorial Receptions

Martha's Loving Hearts organizes and hosts receptions for funerals and memorials held at St. Paul UMC. This is one less thing for a grieving family to worry about, and is a way for our St. Paul church family to support and care for those who are grieving.  Receptions involve things like desserts or finger sandwiches and drinks. Receptions for more than 50 people are referred to a caterer in most cases.

Partnering with Other Ministries

Martha's Loving Hearts also partners with our after school ministry, Jumpstart, to provide food for the kids and volunteers once a month. They also serve at St. Paul by doing things like providing cookies or other treats to the Connection Center on the first Sunday of the month, and hosting the quarterly Next Steps gathering for new members and new Christians.
