Sunday, December 11th one Worship Service of Lessons & Carols at 10 a.m.

Gaudete in Domino semper: iterum dico, gaudete. 
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.”


Gaudete Sunday is known as the “Sunday of joy,”
and that instead of fretting about
 “all you still haven’t” done to prepare for Christmas, 
people should “think of all the good things life has given you.”



The Purpose of the Church is to 
love and serve the needs of the world.

Vision statement:  

St. Philip’s is a safe space where all who enter sense they are wanted, needed, and important.  

St. Philip’s is a holy and exciting place to discover, and participate in the gifts God has created in us: to grow them, to develop them, and to use them on a regular basis.  

St. Philip’s is a thriving, sustainable community, whose growth endures through actively living the Gospel of Christ.

Mission:  Acts 2:42-45 

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.  Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need.” (Invite into service, fellowship and worship)
