St. Philip Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We have been a congregation for more than 50 years and have many active ministries devoted to helping us all Live Like That.
The global missions team seeks to promote peace, justice, and care of creation through congregational support of missions at home and abroad. We will educate congregation members about the diverse needs of the community to which we all belong. We as Christians wish to share the many blessings that God has so graciously given.
Our current mission partner is Malawi, Africa. We are active in our partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Malawi.
St. Philip partners with Lutheran Family Services’ Minnick Schools to provide a place for students with special needs to practice life and work skills that might connect them to careers in the mainstream culture. On any given week, 5 to eight teenagers and young adults disperse throughout the St. Philip facility to move tables, stack chairs, vacuum carpets, and other much needed tasks.
The need at St. Mark’s Lutheran Food Pantry continues to grow. They need our help to restock their pantry. The food items needed are all Paper products, canned fruit, & canned vegetables. You may make a check to St. Mark’s or give cash if you don’t have time to shop, leave it on the secretary’s desk. St. Mark will mail you a receipt.
Look for the yellow shirts with the tag line – God’s work. Our hands. Each fall a crew from St. Philip connects with a local organization to provide the people power for projects that might enhance the ministry of the organization.
We have gone to the dogs. St. Philip serves as a training site for Pet Therapy teams. You will see many of our teams in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, anywhere and everywhere that people might benefit from the unconditional love of a trained therapy team. Miracles of compassion, healing and wholeness truly take place.
