our vision, our mission, our purpose

The Lay Leadership of St. Philip’s United Methodist Church gathered together to define the mission of our church. During the workshops, the overwhelming thoughts centered around touching the lives of the congregation and those yet untouched in our neighborhood. By touching lives, each of us become a Disciple of Christ as we go into the world seeking others to join us. As such, the following Vision and Mission Statement were written: 

Our Vision: St. Philip’s is an active, thriving, multi-generational church where all persons gifts are valued and utilized.
