At St. Philip we provide many different ministries on different days to suit your families needs. We have great kids programs along with many adult programs to give you the mid week or weekend boost that you need. All groups and ministries are bible based and give you the opportunity to meet other people who attend.
All of our programs are lead by caring people of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. We are confident that you will find the perfect fit for you and your family. Check out the available ministries below...
Nursery (Birth to 23 months)
We always welcome children of all ages in Worship. If it is helpful for you, a nursery is provided for infants and children under the age of 4.
The Nursery is located in Room 18, just around the corner from the Sanctuary on the Oak Terrace. Our Childcare providers are there to provide a safe, warm environment that begins building relationships between you, your child and our church family. If you need help finding the nursery please feel free to ask.
Footsteps of Faith
(Kindergarten - 5th Grade)
Elementary students begin their faith journey in Room 10 for music time. They use their voices, instruments, and movement to praise God. They learn songs that coordinate with their lessons and will enliven and inspire them. The students then learn using “Growing in Grace and Gratitude”, which is a PC (USA) created curriculum designed to help all ages learn to love and follow Christ. Lessons are Bible-based and provide a strong foundation of faith rooted in the Reformed tradition. We encourage children to bring their Bibles to class.
Junior High (6th to 8th Grade)
Location: Junior High Loft, Room 16 in the Christian Education Wing
Junior High youth will study the Bible in new and creative ways that will make Biblical stories come alive, and, in response to God's amazing, unconditional love, will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ's disciples.
(9th & 10th Grade)
Location: Room 11 in the Christian Education Wing
Our Confirmands meet every Sunday, August to May, to focus on learning what it means to be a Presbyterian. The class will focus on scripture, worship, Presbyterianism, creeds, and sharing our faith. At the end of the course, the class will be examined by Session in anticipation of joining as full members of St. Philip Presbyterian Church.
(11th & 12th Grade)
Location: Youth Hall, Room 13 in the Christian Education wing
Each week the Senior High youth have a group discussion about current events and how they relate to the Christian life. Students will be encouraged to dive into a deeper understanding of the Bible.
