Other Ways to Connect


Bishop and Breakfast - This Sunday!

Baptisms, Confirmations and Receptions.
It's always a celebration when a Bishop joins us for worship services. On Sunday, October 13th, St. Philip's will welcome The Rt. Rev. Rayford High. With the departure of Bishop Jennifer Brook-Davidson, Bishop Reed has asked retired Bishop High, to assist him with diocesan visitations. 

Bishop High served in the Diocese of West Texas as a priest from 1966 to 1981. He served as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Texas from 2003 - 2012. He also served as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Ft. Worth from 2012 - 2015. Click Here to learn more about Bishop High. He will celebrate and preach at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services. The 10:30 service will include the sacraments of baptism and confirmation, as well as reception of new members and the reaffirmation of baptismal vows.

Please join us in welcoming Bishop High to St. Philip's by joining us for breakfast in Briscoe Hall between the two services at 9:15 a.m. Those being confirmed, received, baptized or reaffirmed should all be present for the breakfast.

We look forward to having you here to greet and worship with Bishop High and to celebrate and witness the confirmations, baptisms, receptions and reaffirmations that will take place that day!

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
