Children, Youth & Families

St. Philip’s Children, Youth, and Family Ministries encourages families to grow in their faith through life milestones, lessons, and service based activities as they develop and nurture their love for Jesus. Children come together to hear and experience God through story, music, play, prayer, acts of service, and other activities.

Scholarships are available for all activities and events. Please talk to Connie Yerigan if scholarships are needed. No one will be excluded from any opportunity due to financial reasons.
