Welcome to St. Philip Lutheran!

We gather for worship each Sunday morning at 8:30a.m. and 11:00a.m. (9:30a.m. from June 16 through August 4) at 8115 Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA. But we are more than a building. We are a congregation that has been in existence for more than 50 years. We are a growing congregation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds seeking to be disciples of Christ. Check out the rest of our website to discover some of the ways that we try to live out our calling as disciples.

 

Our Mission Statement

Open tomb!  We are people tied to the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here.  ~Mark 16: 5-6

 

Open hearts!  We are people transformed by this good news, marked with the cross of Christ forever!

We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you.  There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours.  In return—I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also. 

 ~2 Corinthians 6: 11-13

 

Open doors!  We are people called to proclaim good news with words of invitation and welcome!

I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.  ~Revelation 3: 8

Sunday, October 26 is Reformation Sunday, a day we uplift Luther’s theology that teaches we are saved by God’s grace alone not by any work that we do. Plan to be in worship as we remember our heritage. As a part of the reformation celebration, wear something red to remind us of the fire of the Spirit that continues to burn in our church today.


All Saints Day, Sunday, November 2In holy baptism God makes saints out of sinners. In holy communion God forgives the sins of all the saints. In the assembly Sunday we will give thanks for all the saints "who from their labors rest," who have fought the good fight, who have gained the crown. In the same breath we petition our God for the strength to hear and to heed the admonitions of the Lord Jesus in today's gospel. Recalling that we have been sealed by the Spirit and sustained by the Savior's body and blood, we keep on keeping on as God gives us breath, to the praise of God's glory.

ELCA presiding bishop joins call for peace in the Holy Land
As the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip further escalates, the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), expressed her profound concern for members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land in a July 17, 2014, letter to that denomination's bishop, the Rev. Dr. Munib A. Younan.
