Texas Ramps Project
What are YOU doing Saturday?
St. Paul's began participating in the Texas Ramps Project in the Spring of 2009. To-Date the members of the congregation, in partnership with other community organizations, have constructed over 120 ramps for area residents and service organizations.
Ramps are typically built on Saturday mornings, usually completed in 2 ½ to 3 hours. When we are not building ramps, we are assembling ramp frames at our Ramp Ministry Center at the corner of Day and College.
We average about 10 ramps per year. The cost of an average ramp is between $500 and $600. How are these costs covered? Funds come from individuals, congregations, foundations, and special grants. There is no cost to the individual receiving the ramp. Dollars raised by St. Paul’s are matched by The Texas Ramp Project, and 100% goes toward the cost of materials.
There are several active "Circles" (Bible Study Groups) that meet monthly. In addition to that they provide food for and serve at funeral receptions. Their biggest ministry is quilts and other items for Lutheran World Relief. These include quilts, school supply kits, infant care kits, fabric kits, and healthcare kits. All of these items are distributed globally through Lutheran World Relief.
