Mission

Mission 
 
Princeton Presbyterian Church reaches out to all, 
acting on God's gift of love in Jesus Christ.  
We nurture faith
Rejoice in differences
Serve our neighbor in Christ's name.

 

Princeton takes our mission statement and our commitment to "serve our neighbor in Christ's name" seriously. We are engaged in the mission in many ways, including supporting the John Gloucester House in Southwest Philadelphia, serving the homeless through Delaware County's "Connect by Night" program, helping the young residents of Presbyterian Children's Village, participating in the annual Souperbowl of Caring, and many other community activities.

 

 
You are welcome to join us in reaching out to serve our neighbors in need!
 

Feast from the Garden

 

We recently finished our second year of Feast from the Garden, a Princeton/Chambers shared ministry creating community gardens maintained and harvested by the Springfield/Rutledge community in partnership with Chester Eastside Ministries. 

We started the ministry in 2012 with four raised garden beds on the Princeton property, providing fresh produce for those who receive food through the Chester Eastside food ministry. In 2013, we added four additional beds to the Princeton garden and built four beds for a new garden at Chester Eastside Ministries.

During the months of April and May we welcome anyone from the community to join us in building raised garden beds and planting them with a variety of vegetable seeds. Through the spring and summer, using organic gardening techniques, we tend and harvest the crops, delivering the bounty to our Chester Eastside neighbors. On regular occasions, we will also have the opportunity to join Chester Eastside in a community feast that includes cooking demonstrations, recipes, and samples of our freshly grown produce coupled with spiritual readings and bible discussion led by Chester Eastside's Reverend Bernice Warren. These events nourish both the body and the soul.

Finally, throughout the summer there are many opportunities for the community to chip in as our gardens grow and vegetables flourish. We have regular garden maintenance and harvest days. We also provide collection points within the community where all gardeners may share portions of their latest bumper crop from their own gardens to add to the harvest for Chester Eastside.
