Food Cupboard: preparation 4:00 pm
Food Cupboard: preparation @ St. Peter's Parish House
Sep 26 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
In 1987, someone knocked on the doors of St. Peter’s Church and asked for food. This simple question sparked the creation of the St. Peter’s Food Cupboard, which now serves an average of 180 families each week. The Food Cupboard is managed by more than 100 volunteers from the church, neighborhood and community. Individuals as well as groups from universities, youth groups and schools are welcome. Some jobs require heavy lifting, but others do not. Every Tuesday from 4-5 .m. and Thursday from 5-6 p.m., volunteers gather at the St. Peter’s parish house at 313 Pine Street to unpack, sort, organize and store pallets of food we receive from Philabundance. All helpful hands are welcome, regardless of age. Sign Up to Receive Information on How to Volunteer: * indicates required Email Address * First Name * Last Name *

House Church Gathering 6:15 pm
House Church Gathering @ Marjory and Rudy Spraycar's house
Sep 27 @ 6:15 pm – 7:45 pm
Click here to register for the September 27 House Church at Marjory and Rudy Spraycar’s house in Washington Square neighborhood. You’re invited to pray with your community in a different way and an opportunity to expand your circle of St. Peter’s relationships. Although this is a different way of gathering as church for many of us, house church is certainly not a new concept; homes were the dominant place of worship for the earliest Christians. As Acts 2:46 reminds us, Jesus’s followers “broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Each house church host will be ready to welcome you starting at 6:15, and worship will begin promptly at 6:30 with a liturgy that includes Bible readings, prayers, and Communion. Following the liturgy, we will share a meal and conversation together, deepening our sense of connection to one another and to God. The host will provide a main dish, and attendees are asked to provide sides, desserts, and beverages.
