Our concept of community is not bound by the limits of our own congregation. We are involved in a variety of efforts to reach out and serve others both within and beyond St. Philip's.
We offer home-cooked meals and visits to the homebound, or when there is a need due to
illness or surgery. Transportation to medical appointments or treatments can be arranged
when family and friends are not available. We also have volunteers who will offer a ride
to our church services to someone who can no longer drive. For more information or to
arrange these support services, contact Rev. Michael Ruk at 215-688-1796.
Formerly known as the Delaware Valley Council of Churches, this ecumenical coalition
of local faith communities sponsors a number of projects including the Lambertville Food Pantry.
Members of St. Philip’s are involved in these efforts and regularly help out with the work
of the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Hunterdon County,
which provides food, shelter, and caring to homeless women and families.
We participate in the monthly Peacemeal dinners at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury, Pa.,
for people in our community living with HIV/AIDS. Dinners generally start at 3:30 PM on the
third Sunday of the month.
See the Trinity website for details.
We collect non-perishable food for the hungry of our area in the front of the church every Sunday.
From time to time we work together on Habitat for Humanity building projects. Watch the calendar for the date of our next workday.
