In person worship

The Session has approved that in person worship, for a limited number of people, will resume on Sunday, October 18 at 11:00 a.m.

But please be aware that this may change depending on COVID-19 case counts and the epidemic curve.  Please check your emails for any changes in this date and please continue reading below for what to expect when we return to worship. 

Details on resuming for worship Oct. 18: 

  • Live Streaming will continue with the usual worship service at 8:30 a.m. in the sanctuary (this will not be our in-person worship service. Only the live stream team and pastors will be present for this service.) People will be able to watch the live stream anytime by going to our YouTube channel “St. Philip Presbyterian Church, Hurst TX”

  • The number attending in person worship will be limited to 50 and will require members and visitors to call Patrice or Mitzi for reservations. (see below for more details on calling for reservations.)

  • The in person worship will be different.  The Session is extremely concerned for the safety of members as they worship.  The Order of worship will be similar but will not include singing of hymns or responsive or unison readings.

                                                            Peace & Global Witness Offering on 

                                                            World Communion Sunday

 

                                                                On October 4, Presbyterians will join believers around the world to celebrate
                                                           World Communion Sunday. On that same day St. Philip, along with many other
                                                           congregations, will receive the Peace & Global Witness Offering. For over three                                                             decades Presbyterians have been contributing to this offering, responding to                                                                 the call to be peacemakers.

                                                                Christians are called as Christ's people to be God's peacemakers as agents                                                             of reconciliation in families, individual lives, communities, churches, the international arena, and the whole of creation. We will share our local portion (25%) of the offering with our ministries to CPS families and KEYS High School since this was the recommendation from St. Philip’s Confirmation Class last year and their graduation has been delayed due to covid-19.

 Today people continue to struggle with racism. Social media is being used to divide our nation rather than bringing us together. covid-19 challenges all of God’s people. This is a record year for wildfires and hurricanes. As we gather around the Table of the Lord, we unite as sisters and brothers in Christ, children of the God of peace. Together we pray for a world desperately in need of the God of peace.

 Since we are still worshiping together in spirit, but in ways that protect each other from covid-19, you are encouraged to either send a check (marked Peacemaking) to the church office or give online by clicking on Give Now at the top of this page. Then click on the “Seasonal Special Offering” Donate button. Please give generously on October 4 to support local and global peacemaking ministries.

21 Day Anti-Racism Challenge

 

Our country has faced another wave of racial unrest

Some know exactly what racism is, what it looks like, and what it sounds like. Others might not be so sure how racism manifests itself.  

 

The Session of St. Philip recommends that our members consider taking the 21 Day Anti-Racism challenge. 

Other Churches have begun to learn more about racism by taking this challenge.

Click on the button below for the Challenge.

                                                                       Looking for a way to connect?

                                                                                           As we finish up the unraveled

                                                                     sermon series we continue to

                                                                     recognize all the things that have

                                                                     unraveled in our lives.  Let’s weave

                                                                     in some blessings!

 

 

 

Want to pick up a blessing to take home?

  1. Stop by the church

  2. Untie a blessing ribbon from the brick wall

  3. Take it home

  4. May God Bless you and keep you! 

 

Want to leave a blessing?

  1. Get some ribbon or a strip of fabric approximately 51 inches long. 

  2. Write a blessing on it

    1. May God Bless you and keep you

    2. May God’s face shine upon you

    3. May God’s peace be with you

    4. Or one of your choosing!

  3. Stop by the church and tie it on a bow on the brick wall outside of the church.

Let us remember we are connected and God’s blessings are woven in our lives.  May God bless you and keep you!

 

Members and friends of St. Philip contribute to the mission of God because giving is at the core of our theological identity. God has given us gifts of faith, mutuality, generosity, and hospitality. Giving simply grows out of the life of faith.​
