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 have developed an informal companion parish relationship with St Philip's Memorial Church in Philadelphia and seek to grow to fully support one another's ministries and programs.
Tim Philpot has accepted the Mission Committee’s invitation to act as the “go to” person for all our service projects. This is an entirely new position in our faith community and will probably be a journey of discovery for all of us. Tim has dedicated a large amount of time and energy in service to this parish as well as the greater community. He will be looking for ideas about how and where to help others and then finding the volunteers to make things happen. Please speak to Tim if you have any ideas or hidden talents.
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 back of the church every Sunday.
We and deliver home-cooked meals to the homebound and others who need this service. See Charlene Chapman.
From time to time we work together on Habitat for Humanity building projects. Watch the calendar for the date of our next workday.
