Welcome to St Philip's Church
Welcome, and thank you for visiting St Philip's Episcopal Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
Please know everyone is always welcome here, as you are, without judgement or expectation. No matter your position, situation, circumstance or orientation, you truly matter to us because you matter to God!
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
“We are the people of God, committed to Jesus Christ and the advance-ment of his kingdom on earth. Moving in the power of the Holy Spirit, we will adopt a spirit of Christian stewardship, fellowship brotherhood faith consciously and actively in our hearts and minds; so that all become aware of their heritage as children of God.
God is our hope and strength, a very present help in trouble.
O most mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succor. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. — 1928 Book of Common Prayer
Messages From Our Bishop....
Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
They shall say to the Lord, "You are my refuge and my stronghold, my God in whom I put my trust." (Psalm 91:1-2)
A NOTE FROM FR. ALLAN...
Dear Members of St. Philip's,
Truly we are living in unprecedented times.
Meet Our New Deacon Mikel Brightman
Before entering seminary in 2017, I had multiple conversations with my priest at St. David’s, The Reverend Lisa Mason, and one of the questions she posed was “Where do you want to serve?” And I immediately said, “St. Philip’s Episcopal Church.”
Lisa then asked “Can you tell me why?” And I thought about that and then said, “I am moved by their history; it is powerful and I want to stand with them in the face of racism in this country.”
