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.
The First Black Wall Street 1900s
June 1st, 1921 will forever be remembered as a day of great loss and devastation. It was on this day that America experienced the deadliest race riot in the small town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ninety-four years later, that neighborhood is still recognized as one of the most prosperous African American towns to date.

The attack that took place in 1921 tore the community apart, claiming hundreds of lives and sending the once prosperous neighborhood up in smoke. Read More..
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
