A Blessed Day for St. Philip's!

Thanks be to God for all the Baptisms, Confirmations and Receptions.
It's always a celebration when a Bishop joins us for worship services and last Sunday did not disappoint. It was a glorious day and a pleasure to be with Bishop High and his wife Ann. Thank you to all who make this day so special, the choir, altar guild, acolytes, the breakfast cooks and decorators, and for your presence here to witness the baptisms, confirmations, receptions and reaffirmations. If you were unable to be here - you can view some of the photos here

Stepping in Faith - 2020 Stewardship

"Lord, where would You want me to be in my giving?"
“Stepping in Faith” is the title for this year’s stewardship campaign for the ministry support of St. Philip’s.  The focus of Stepping in Faith is on our need as a follower of Jesus to give.  As we take this journey, we will all be invited to pray:  “Lord, where would You want me to be in my giving?”  Throughout the campaign we will utilize a devotional titled Practicing Extravagant Generosity.  Copies have been ordered and labeled by household and will be available for pick up during regular office hours and during Sunday services.  Please pick up your copy at your earliest convenience. -- Sr. Warden Charlie Downing
