As our parish and its many ministries continue to grow, so does our need for greater support. Please prayerfully consider how you will respond to your commitment to God and your church, when you bring in your Pledge Card on November 17, 2019 for Stewardship Sunday. “Let God, through the Holy Spirit, guide your decision to give and let your giving be a joyful response to God’s generosity to you.”
Thanksgiving Eve Worship Services
Please join us as we gather together in a spirit of thankfulness on Wednesday, November 27th at 11:00 AM or 6:00 PM for our Annual Thanksgiving Eve Services. Please bring non-perishable food items with you to worship to support the Food Pantry. Your donations will help to bridge the gap for needed food, particular for the holidays quickly approaching. “There is no childcare available for this service, children are invited to join their families.”
During the Season of Advent, Fr. Callender will lead a three week presentation on his sabbatical in Greece, Jordan, Israel and Egypt. The discussions are on: Wednesday, Dec. 4, 11 & 18 at Noon & 6:00 PM.

Inquirers Gathering 2020
If you would like to become a member of St. Philip’s Church or just sort of interested in finding out more about what the Episcopal Church is all about, then sign-up for our Inquirers Gathering on the information table.
Sunday Child Care
Child Care for infants and toddlers (up to the age of four) is available every week of the year during the 10:30 AM worship service. The Child Care area is located in Classroom #1 in the Family Life Center Building. Parents should escort their children to the classroom. We utilize a sign-in procedure and collect cell numbers, so we can notify you during the service if your child needs you for any reason. If you are new to the church, the Childcare Supervisor will be able to assist you in bringing your child/ren to the classroom and answer any questions you may have.
Sunday School is offered for our young people ages 5-17 years old during the academic year (September – June). We offer a wonderful program (Living the Good News), where our young people have an engaging opportunity for learning the Holy Scriptures. Every 5th Sunday we have one service at 10:00 AM for Youth & Young Adults Sunday.
St. Philip’s Church has started a new Youth Group that will meet once a month on Saturdays for fun activities, events and trips. Please check out the full church and diocesan calendars located on the information table for upcoming events and dates.
Food Pantry Needs - Thank you for your past donations!
We ask that you remember our Food Pantry. By giving as many canned goods (vegetables, meats, soups, fruit, peanut butter & jelly, cereals, etc.) as you are able, you are helping our community do more than just get by. You may also make a monetary contribution & note on the memo line “Food Pantry”.
Thank you for what you will do and have done to help us continue our ministry…we appreciate you!
Diocese of Maryland Legacy Society
~The Legacy Society is an opportunity for churches to recognize persons who have remembered their church in their will and estate plans. We encourage all parishes to establish a Legacy Society as a part of their development planning. We also have an All Saints Diocesan-wide Legacy Society which honors persons who have remembered either their parish or the Diocese at large in their will and estate plans. Your name is published in the Diocese of Maryland’s convention booklet and you will be invited to a service and reception honoring each member this fall, where both Bishops will present you with a Diocesan Legacy Society Pin. If you are interested or want more information please see John Parham or Pat McGrath.
