St. Philip's serves a free meal to those in need on the fourth Thursday night of each month from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The Community Meal ministry has grown since its inception in 2008 and is now a staple in the lives of many in our community and is a central ministry of the parish. The number of guests varies from month to month but usually about 200+ meals are served...
The Altar Guild ensures that the church is ready for worship services. That's a simple statement which covers many responsibilities. The Altar Guild who works behind the scenes preparing and tending the sanctuary. The Altar Guild sees that everything needed for the service is cleaned and in its place so that the services can be conducted with order, decency and beauty. The Altar Guild tends the candles, flowers, linens, vestments, vessels and even the bread and wine. The Altar Guild sets up the altar for the service and cleans after the service. Thus the work of the Altar Guild goes before and after the services, surrounding our worship with its gifts. Altar Guild members are not usually seen while working but the results of their work are very visible!
There is always a need for more to participate in this important and rewarding ministry of the church. Loyalty and commitment are the most important attributes of people serving on the Altar Guild. If you are interested in learning more about the Altar Guild, or would like to join, contact Kim Webb, Chairperson. As with all ministries at St. Philip's, training is provided and new members are supported by experienced members.

The worship of the church is often referred to as the Liturgy. ‘Liturgy’ comes from a Greek word which originally meant a public duty or a service to the state undertaken by a citizen. It is sometimes said that liturgy is the work of the people, and our worship is the work of God’s people.
