Wednesdays in Advent: December 6th, 13th & 20th at 7pm  ~  “The Kingdom of Heaven will be like this…”: An Advent Series  ~  Advent is not only a traditional time for Christians to prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth, it is also a time to look forward to Christ’s return. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells three different parables exploring how Christians might wait and prepare for the coming of his Kingdom.  As we approach Christmas, our intern, Tom Clement, will be leading a three-week series looking at each of these three parables. Each meeting will last no more than an hour. We will begin with a meditative reading of that week’s parable, followed by a period of open discussion before closing with a shortened version of evening prayer.  No advance reading or preparation is necessary. All welcome.

Sacrament Preparation - Next month is the Bishop’s visit to St. Philip’s on Sunday, December 17, 2017.  For those members wishing to be baptized, confirmed or received into the church on that special day please contact Fr. Callender to start the process!
