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

Summer Worship Schedule:

One worship service at 9:30am
through September 3
(Labor Day weekend)

This summer, inspired by the Holy Spirit, St. Philip will celebrate the gift of God’s grace by glorifying God in worship, through art and song. Both music and art communicate the Word of God to and through God’s people. So, we will focus our worship on God’s Word: the biblical word, the preached word, the sung word, and the visual word.

Backpack Blessing

 With the school year starting, St. Philip will have a Backpack Blessing as a part of worship on Sunday, August 27th at 9:30am. All children, youth, and teachers are invited to bring their backpacks or school bags to church for this time of prayer and blessing for the new school year. Consider inviting your friends or teachers you know to come and have their backpacks blessed as we ask for God’s blessing for all teachers and students. Flyers will be available the first of August to help you to spread the word.  Let’s have a big pile of backpacks and a great start to a year of learning!
