We are church who believes strongly in God’s love and forgiveness, what we call grace. This is why we work to intentionally build relationships through Christ to grow and serve.
We would love to have the opportunity to meet you and your family. Please feel free to reach out to Pastor Brad Doty or Melinda Svenkerud, our Children, Youth and Family Director.

Children’s Ministry

 Vacation Bible School

St. Philip Lutheran Church hosts Vacation Bible School (VBS) each summer for kids 4 years old
through 4th grade. All are welcome to join us for VBS! You do not have to be part of the church to join for this wonderful week of music, games, Bible study, crafts and fun! Older kids, youth, adults and seniors are encouraged to volunteer! Last year we had just under 100 kids with over 50 volunteers! Each year, we partner with Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp to offer to best music, curriculum and leadership. We are so excited to welcome your children into our church home to play and learn about God’s love.

Puppet Praise Ministry


Ever wanted to try out puppetry??

This is your chance!

All are welcome!!

Puppet Praise Ministry is an opportunity for kids to have fun with puppets. At each event, the kids learn how to put on a puppet show and practice with puppets as they get ready to put on a puppet show. This ministry gives children the opportunity to bring the Word of God to others through puppets. 

Open to all kids entering 1st grade and up!
