~ This Week at St. Philip's ~
Your weekly eSPIRE newsletter will be back the first week in January with resumption dates of classes and activities, helpful links, stories of Christmas blessings, and more. Have a blessed and merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
In-person Christmas Eve worship is limited to those whose names were drawn in the reservation lottery.
If your name was not drawn, please join us live online for a festive celebration of our Savior's birth. Printable bulletins will be posted on each service's event page on our website.
Please join us on Christmas Day at 10:00 a.m. for a service of Holy Eucharist. The Rev. Marc Boutan will be preaching, and while there will not be a choir, we will be singing Christmas hymns with organ accompaniment. Please note that this service will not be streamed or recorded. Registration is encouraged.
Celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior by tuning into our service of Lessons and Carols, which will feature an 18-piece orchestra and the voices of all of St. Philip's choirs (children and adults). Through Scripture and song, God’s plan of salvation will be traced from the creation of the world through the wondrous incarnation of Jesus Christ at Christmas. Please join us online! The link to the stream will be posted on the front page of our website and on the Lessons and Carols event page when it is available.
A note about printable bulletins and livestream links
There will not be an eSPIRE or "This Week at St. Philip's" email next week, and the January 3 livestream link will be emailed to those on the weekly worship email list only. If you do not receive our weekly worship emails and would like to sign up to receive them, please click here. Livestream links and printable bulletins are also posted to the news section of our website ahead of each service.
