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

Blood Drive - May 11, noon to 7:00pm


“Giving so little…means so much…in the lives of so many.”

 

The bloodmobile will be here at St. Philip on Monday, May 11, from noon to 7:00p.m.

 

The gospel of John tells us that on the night Jesus was betrayed, he modeled the act of love by washing his disciples feet and gave them a new commandment to love one another as he has loved them.  There are lots of ways for us to follow in the footsteps of Jesus example, one being participating in the blood drive at St. Philip.  To sign up, see the poster in the narthex or call the church office at 366-7046.

 

“It feels good to save a life.”

Nepal Area Earthquake
We have seen the devastating images and stories coming out of Nepal. Sections of Kathmandu, the nation’s capital, and surrounding areas lie in rubble. More than 3,000 people have lost their lives, and the number continues to rise as officials make their way through rural communities. Historic buildings and houses have been leveled; roads are destroyed. The injured and their families line the streets in front of hospitals and caregivers. The need for food, water, medical care, blankets and shelter is great.

You can help now with a gift to Lutheran Disaster Response. 

Every gift designated to the Nepal Area Earthquake through Lutheran Disaster Response will be used entirely – 100 percent – to help those impacted by the quake rebuild their lives and livelihoods. You can help provide comfort, healing and hope in the midst of destruction.
