Share the Love. Spread the Gospel. Grow the Kingdom

Welcome to St. Philip’s, a family dedicated to following the command of Christ to “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”  (Mk 16:15)  From our front porches to yours, we invite you to “Come and See” the many opportunities we offer to share and spread the Gospel with one another and the world through discipleship and study.

Adult Christian Education:

Time & Place: Sunday’s @ 9:30am in the Parish Hall

Description: Our Adult Christian Education is a thought filled and thoughtful encounter with the Word of God.  Led by Kinkler Handly, this class uses an amicable seminar group setting focusing upon Holy Scriptures, reason, and tradition as a basis for Christian living in a world seeking current Christian responses.  Church history is often discussed.  All situations, thoughts and questions are welcomed.  While there is the use of weekly study materials, the group often responds to unscheduled discussions.  Members join in the discussions or just listen as the Spirit moves them.

Children’s Sunday School

Time & Place: TBA

Description: Our Children’s Sunday School is a time to share the Word of God in a fun, educational, and worship filled environment.  Through the use of the “Living the Good News” curriculum, our children interact with the Sunday lectionary through reading, role playing, and arts and crafts.  The children gather in the church for worship with their families, and will be led out in procession for Sunday School after the first hymn.  The children return to church in time for the Offertory and Communion so that they may participate in the worship of our Lord and receive the Holy Sacrament.  Ages 3 – 13 are welcome.

Education for Ministry (EfM):

Time & Place: Wednesdays @ 6pm in the Parish Hall

Description: Efm is a four-year distance learning theological education program of the School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.  Participants commit one year at a time to meet regularly in seminars led by trained mentors.  During the four years, participants study the Bible, church history, and theology, while learning to engage in theological reflection.  EfM provides a comprehensive, experiential education in the foundations and message of our Christian faith.  EfM is for the laity of the church.  Every Christian receives the call to Christ’s ministry at baptism.  EfM provides the basics of a theological education in order to develop knowledge and confidence about the ministry we all share.

Men’s Ministry:

Time & Place: TBA

Description: For this gathering of Christian men, we invite you for food and fellowship as we follow the Proverbial adage that as “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) The food is cooked, and the meeting is hosted by different men each month, so please stay tuned to your church bulletin or Monthly Calendar for more details.  No agendas…just good food, good conversation, centered around a great God!

Daughter’s of the King:

Time & Place: First Monday of the Month @ 4:30pm in the Parish Hall

Description: The Order of the Daughters of the King® was founded in 1885 by Margaret J. Franklin at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in New York City. Members of the Order undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.  The DOK is an Order, not an organization.  We don’t just enroll as members and attend meetings; we take life-long vows to follow the Rule of Prayer and Rule of Service.
