Community Outreach

Feed The Hungry

Jesus said: “Feed my Sheep”.

Can you spare an hour every 4-5 weeks to volunteer in a very special ministry?

St. Peter’s Feed the Hungry Program has served the Huntington community for more than 20 years. Teams of volunteers from the congregation shop for and deliver healthy foods to Helping Hands Rescue Mission. The program provides for needy families and children in our midst.

During COVID-19 we are shopping for fresh meat to add to the take home bags that they are preparing for their clients.

Would you like to be part of this amazing ministry? Hours for shopping and delivery are flexible to fit your schedule. To find out more about how you can join the St. Peter’s team speak with Jane Maresco,

HiHi stands for Huntington Interfaith Homeless Initiative. This ministry involves communities of all faiths that work with Family Service League to make sure no one spends a night on the streets during the harsh winter months.

From December 1 through March 31, homeless men are housed and fed by volunteers. St. Peter’s takes in these men on 11 Monday nights throughout the season. Meals are prepared by our volunteers, who then serve and stay with the men throughout the night.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the men will be housed at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church each night for the 2021/2022 session. Employees from Family Service League will supervise program and no volunteers are allowed onsite.

Alternative Giving

Each year we work with ELCA Good Gifts, The Heiffer Organization and various other agencies that offer alternative giving. Many of us run out of gift ideas for our family and friends at the holidays and look for other ways to honor them with our giving. Alternative giving offers us the opportunity to help others around the world with gifts of: school or medical supplies, farming equipment or animals, clean water, mosquito netting and much more. These organizations provide needed supplies through local groups that have first-hand knowledge of the needs of the community. Our gifts are put to use immediately.

Social Justice

The ELCA is a church that believes God is calling us into the world — together. As part of this call, we seek the common good for society, provide moral vision and are committed to addressing social and cultural injustices and issues. The ELCA participates in God’s just and loving purpose for all of creation in many different ways, from the daily actions of members as citizens, to efforts in social service, to public witness for justice.  Our extensive commitment to social justice is summarized here.
