“Serve God in all.” First Congregational Church of Webster Groves participates in several ministries that benefit the local community and regions throughout the world. Local and global ministries provide members rewarding, volunteer experiences to assist people in need.
Innkeepers and helpers from among our membership meet at the church the 4th Friday of each month to provide a safe place for homeless women, including some mothers and their children, to stay overnight. We provide a meal, companionship, and a safe place to sleep. This program is an outreach of the Sisters of Divine Providence and operates in more than 70 churches around the St. Louis area.
