I am not quite sure this is true, but the pastors and church council want the congregation to be aware that starting mid-January, the three exterior entrances to the St. Philip facility will be re-keyed Since our building was constructed in 1993 the locks have remained the same. Over the years, one of the growing ministries at St. Philip has been opening our facilities to church members, ministry groups, and local non-profit organizations. We very much want that ministry of hospitality to continue.
Once locks are changed, entrance into the building will happen through the side doors where a coded box will have a non-duplicatable master key to get into St. Philip. Any member of St. Philip who would like the code will be able to get that from Laura, office administrator in the church office. Additionally, one-time users of the building will be provided a temporary code for entrance during their event. With this change we hope to have a bit of reset after years of keys being issued and not returned as well as simplifying procedures for all the folks who count on St. Philip for space for ministry.
PLEASE NOTE: AFTER THE NEW LOCKS ARE INSTALLED YOUR CURRENT ST. PHILIP KEY WILL NOT WORK ON EXTERIOR DOORS. The building key will continue to work on interior doors for now.
