What is going on in St. Philip's Children and Youth ministry?

Check out the new Children's series! 

The Youth are about to start a new series! Here's what it is about:

The thesis of this series is that you and I - who we are - is made up of the commitments we make and the habits we develop. Helping students develop healthy habits for long-term, independent spiritual growth is the foundation of this series. We want to bring students into the Word of God and equip them with tools to keep developing their faith, even after they've left our ministry. Students will discover six spiritual disciplines that have the potential to change their life: Hanging out with God, Accountability with another believer, Bible memorization, Involvement in the church body, Tithing, and Scripture study. 

Inside Out meets every Sunday at 5pm! Don't forget to spread the word, invite your friends, and be join the community! 


Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding involvement at St. Philip's UMC! We look forward to hearing from you!
