Welcome to the St. Philip’s Episcopal Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. St. Philip's has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for Holy Eucharist on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. We also invite you to participate in any of of our many parish ministries"Come as you are; leave a little different."
