Newcomers/New Members Ministry

Members of this ministry are responsible for making all visitors feel welcome in St. Philip's. Guests are welcomed by greeters who give them gift bags full of information about St. Philip's. Visitors are invited to come for coffee after the service and to fill out an information card.

This ministry also helps new members become active members of the church.  The new members are educated about and encouraged to take part in the Ministries of St. Philip’s.  There are also events that give them an opportunity to interact in small groups

ECW - Episcopal Church Women
ECW is comprised of all the women in St. Philip's who are committed to one another and to Christ. Through monthly luncheons, a Fall Festival, UTO boxes and presentations, the lives of the women of St. Philip's are enriched.  The money raised through the Fall Festival helps fund local charities.
Men's Club
All men of St. Philip's are welcome.  In addition to monthly meetings with speakers, the Men's Club runs several fundraisers.  The Lobster Sale in June is the biggest.  However, hot dogs in July and at the ECW Fall Festival and funds from the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper all go to support local charities.
Brotherhood of St. Andrews

The Brotherhood of St. Andrews was organized in March 2020. The group meets once a week to share their stories, pray for one another and to reflect on how they live as Christian men.  They help the Men's Club in their service and fundraising projects.

Brotherhood of St. Andrew. The Brotherhood of St. Andrew is the Episcopal Church's ministry by and to men, whose stated purpose is "bringing men and boys to Christ." It asks men to adopt three disciplines, Prayer, Study, and Service. Our local chapter has committed to the regular reading of the Lections for the Daily Office but also encourages our members to participate in other studies offered by the parish. Contact: Fr.
