Community Activities and Outreach

St. Paul's is a faith-sharing and loving congregation. In big and small ways, we support our community through mission programs and outreach. Our local community joined together to construct Hospice House in East Northport and we raised $25,000 to fund a room there. Once a month, we host the Peanut Butter & Jelly Gang, making sandwiches and preparing wash-kits for soup kitchens and parish outreach across Long Island. 

Here are some other ways we share the spirit of God with the people of our community:

  • Sports at St. Paul's

    Gathering youth together in fellowship is central to our mission and we've had winning basketball teams ever since our youth building was built in the 1950's! Our teams compete in the  Lutheran Church League and have played many championship games. We currently have six teams with over 70 players lead by our dedicated coaches. Every game begins with a prayer and ends with a handshake.

  • Scouting

    We are the chartered organization for Boy Scout Troop 474. Scouting activities began in the early 1970's at St. Paul's and have expanded to include Girl Scouts as well. Many Eagle & Gold Award projects have enhanced the grounds of our church property. Scouts have designed and planted gardens, erected fences, installed stairways and remodeled Sunday School rooms. We always enjoy hosting the scouts for Scout Sunday. For more information about Boy Scout Troop 474 email Scoutmaster Rob Thall  at For inquiries regarding Eagle and Gold Awards, call the Church Office at 631.754.4422.

  • Agnes' Attic Thrift Shop at St. Paul's

    Since 2008, our thrift shop has served as a form of outreach to the Northport/East Northport community. It's named after Agnes Chipman - a devoted member of St. Paul's. The shop is stocked with a wonderful selection of clothing and household items. Dedicated members of our congregation run the shop and donate the profits to support many initiatives like Dress for Success, Hurricane Sandy Outreach, and Adopt-A-Family. The shop is located at the church with its own entrance at 120 Vernon Valley Road. Visit us on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

  • Northport Food Pantry

    Every Sunday, we collect non-perishable food items in our cheerful red wagon to support the Ecumenical Lay Council's Food Pantry located in the First Presbyterian Church at 330 Main St. in Northport Village. The Food Pantry serves approximately 150 families each week.

  • Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous

    Two community recovery groups meet weekly at St. Paul's.

    Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) meets on Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m. for newcomers and at 8:00 p.m. for the big book meeting. AA also meets again on Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. for an open discussion meeting. 

    Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meets on Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m.
