WORSHIP AND LITURGY AT ST. PHILIP
WHAT TO EXPECT | SUNDAYS
Worship is the heart of our community. Our church is full of activity every day of the week – but everything we do is centered in our Sunday morning worship, where we are nourished to go out and be God’s people in the world. Our worship is rooted in Lutheran liturgical tradition and utilizing a diversity of musical styles.
We are reminded of God's radical love for all people in Christ Jesus.
We listen to the ancient stories that have nurtured and shaped our faith.
We share a meal at a table wide enough for everyone to find a place.
We are sent out into the world to serve our neighbors.
We celebrate Holy Communion every week. At St. Philip, we welcome all to Christ's table, where we receive Christ’s body and blood given and shed for us and for the life of the world. We practice eucharistic hospitality and offer both wheat bread and gluten-free wafers and red wine and non-alcoholic white grape juice. If you would like communion brought to you at your seat, please let an usher know. If you do not wish to receive communion, you are invited to come forward for a blessing or remain in your seat.
We welcome children of all ages and their families. Our worship services often include a special children's message. Childcare is provided, and special worship booklets with coloring pages and activities for kids are also available. Families are also welcome to use the Joyful Noise Room at any point during the service (just to the left of where you enter the building), which is equipped with books and toys, as well as a changing table and feeding chair. Volume-controlled audio of the worship service is also available in the Joyful Noise Room. Please let an usher know if you have any questions.
Our worship is both formal and informal. Please come as you are - no dress code required - and please participate as fully as you feel comfortable. If something is different or confusing, ask questions! We invite you to be a part of worship and learn more, no matter where you are on your faith journey.

MIDWEEK WORSHIP | WEDNESDAYS
During Advent, Lent, and other occasional times and seasons, we gather for midweek worship. These liturgies are shorter (about 20-30 minutes) and more contemplative in nature. The pattern and style of liturgy changes, but typically there is scripture, reflection, music, and prayer.
