Help St. Philip’s Ministry
by Joining a Special Team or Committee Below
***Join the Live-streaming Team. This special team of the church provides for the live streaming of our worship service. Members of this team work on a Power Point slide show (which is shown before the worship service), sets up the micro phones, and uses a laptop and a special production box that puts the worship service on Facebook and YouTube. Special training is needed, but it is not as difficult as you might think. Please contact Rev. Greg Garis or Tom Demer if you are interested in joining this special team.
***The Worship Committee is looking for interested people to join their committee. The worship committee oversees the music program, coordinates special services, helps recruit lay worship assistances, and oversees the people who prepare communion for the church. If you are interested, please speak with Rev. Greg Garis or Cecil Lawrence.
Do you like talking to people on the phone? Join the Calling Team which checks on members to see how they are doing. If you are interested, please contact Rev. Alissa Conner.

Project "Undy Sunday"
In January 2017 a church member brought a need for
neglected and/or abused children entering foster care to our hearts.
Shortly after that, UNDY SUNDAY was born.
The 3rd Sunday of each month is declared "UNDY SUNDAY" at St. Philip.
New underwear, socks, Tshirts, sleepwear, and diapers are collected.
"First night bags" are filled with these items so children can enter their first placement
in foster care with new underwear, socks, sleepwear and some toiletries.

Habitat for Humanity-2020 House
Due to the COVID-19 situation, most of the Habitat work got moved to later in the summer, and also due to the small numbers of volunteers who are able to work with the new safety measures, a lot of the work will be done by contractors.
Here is the signup link for our house (please share with volunteers):
Our house is still at 1253 New York Avenue, and our family is still the Habimana family.
The workdays planned are June 10, 17, 19, 20.
We will not need lunches, because the work times will be 7:15 am - 1:00 pm.
Furthermore, due to safety procedures, no shared food will be allowed on site. Individuals are encouraged to bring their own snacks kept in the car for breaks when they are needed. Bottled water will be provided. This is weird for us
Presbyterians, but we need to abide by the rules.
There will be a maximum of 10 volunteers and 3 supervisors on site, and also see the other requirements.
