Friendly Visitors Ministry Team
As members of the body of Christ, we are called to care for one another in our communities. Friendly Visitors are trained to do just that – visit members who are not able to make it to church due to any number of reasons. Friendly Visitors check in on members, bring them communion, or simply offer conversation.
Growing Through Loss
This 6-week series provides an opportunity for individuals to obtain information and support for a variety of loss and grief issues.
Each session begins with an educational presentation by a professional from the community, followed by small groups facilitated by leaders who understand the grieving process.
Although there is no cost, donations are welcome. Registration takes place each evening before the program. Church affiliation is not necessary.

The next series will be held at Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Mounds View, beginning April 17, 2023. Each session is complete in itself; attend any or all sessions.

Prayer is an important activity in Christianity. It is a way of relating to God, to ourselves, and to those around us. St. Philip’s has an active group of people willing to pray for others, for any reason, through our Prayer Network.
Prayer requests are received and then shared with the members of the Prayer Network to be included in their daily prayers. Prayer requests can be submitted electronically by completing a Prayer Request form.
This space is a quiet location set aside from the busy world offering the opportunity for quiet reflection, contemplation, and prayer. The Prayer Room is open throughout the week during regular office hours and during other scheduled activities at St. Philip’s.

The Serenity Garden is a natural area located south of the Fellowship Hall and within view of Moore Lake. The original idea for a garden began within the former Health and Wellness Ministries group who joined forces with two brothers working to earn their Eagle Scout awards. It was built as a quiet place for prayer and reflection. Included is the garden space, a path leading to the amphitheater and fire ring, and an elevated area, Sunset Point, which provides a seating area. Come enjoy this beautiful spot along the lakeshore.
Visitation Pastor Margie Guelker leads the Visitation Ministry at St. Philip’s. Pastor Margie strives to visit those who can no longer attend worship. She usually sees home bound members every four to six weeks. She brings communion, reads scripture, and prays with those she visits.
Please contact Pastor Matt Flom at MattF@splcmn.org or 763-571-1500 Ext. 112 to request a visit.
