music at st. philip's

The music ministry at St. Philip’s United Methodist Church is a fellowship of Christians of all ages, who express their faith through music as leaders in worship and as witnesses to that faith in its overall ministry of music throughout the church. 

Our music programs provide an opportunity for all people, children and adults, to respond to God’s grace and mercy in their lives by giving of their talents back to the glory of God. We believe that God calls people in many different ways. Therefore, we offer music in both traditional forms (organ music, hymns, and choral anthems) and contemporary praise and worship music.
