Ministries at St. Philip

Each of the worship services at St. Philip Lutheran Church ends with a dismissal which challenges us to live lives of service. The congregation responds “Thanks be to God.”

We take these words to heart as we send people into the world to serve. Jesus calls us to a faith that is active in love. The opportunities to live out our faith are as varied as the lives of our people.

If you want to get involved, but don’t know where you would fit best then fill out a spiritual gifts assessment. This assessment will help you to discover your spiritual gifts, the gifts God has given you, and lead you to something you really enjoy.

Background Check for Working with Children and Youth
