These are some of our ongoing activities at St. Philip's:
- Peacemeal is every third Sunday at Trinity Solebury. We participate in this dinner for people in our community living with HIV/AIDS, which provides not only a meal but also loving, non-judgemental fellowship. Please see Paul Licitra.
- Food pantry items and small (or large!) cash donations in support of local anti-poverty efforts are collected in the back of the church anytime.
- Choir practice is almost any Sunday after the second service around the piano. Even those who aren't professionals are welcome to help lead the community's singing. See Roburt Gajdos or Robert Calabrese.
- Ministry of Food prepares and delivers home-cooked meals to the homebound and others who need this service. See Charlene Chapman.
- Readers are needed for our scripture selections and for the Prayers of the People, among some other opportunities to serve the community during our worship. There's a signup sheet in the back and we can use your help.
- Flowers and hospitality are two other ministries you can sign up for in the back of church.
- Adult Forum/Bible study takes place in the church between services most Sunday mornings. We gather as seekers to break open the weekly readings and deepen our understanding of the Word of God as it applies to ur own efforts to lead the life Jesus taught. Sessions also take place on occasional Thursdays in members' homes; check the parish calendar or the weekly announcements for details.
- The Labyrinth offers a way of prayer and reflection that many people find deeply meaningful. It was created in the fall of 2008 by a group of parishioners led by Liz, and Hank contributed the stone plate at the center. Read more about labyrinths.
- Altar Guild is always looking for people to help set up for services. See Kate Shields or Beryl Sortino for more information.
- Ministry of Food, coordinated by Charlene Chapman, prepares and delivers meals to the homebound. Talk to Charlene if you're willing to prepare or deliver food, or if you or someone you know would be helped by this service. There's a form to collect basic information about what's needed.
- Memorial Garden is a resting place for our own saints here in the parish. This is a green memorial garden so there will be no containers buried here as we honor both the earth and the members of the community. See Peter for more information.
- Prayer list is updated weekly. See Claire Donohue.
- Adult Children of Alcoholics meets every Sunday evening from 6:30 to 7:30 in the chapel house.
- Knitters Group is making "Duduza" dolls to send to needy children and they're always grateful for helpers. You don't even have to know how to knit, they'll teach you! See Jane King or Pat Eyeington.
- AA meets every Tuesday evening from 7:30-8:30 in the chapel house.
- Innerfaith Hospitality Network shelter is hosted in Lambertville periodically by members of several local churches including St Philip's.
- Bicycle collection for our neighbors who have no other means of transportation is being organized by Lupe Summers. See her if you have a new or used bike you'd like to contribute to the cause. Thanks.
- Parish directories are available in the back of the church.
