Here at St. Philip’s, we invite you to be a part of our church community. We hold weekly and monthly events so that we may learn more about our Lord together. Below are a few of our regular events. See our church calendar for dates and times.
Theology on Tap
Theology on Tap is our monthly book club.
Once a month we fellowship together at a local restuarant in town. Please see our weekly newsletter for the meeting location.
Each month we will read a selected book and discuss it. Fr. Miller will act as moderator for our discussions.
The next Theology on Tap will be Sunday, February 26, 2023 at 5:00pm at El Mariachi to discuss the book Early Christian Worship by Paul Bradshaw. You can buy your copy here.
Following February's Theology on Tap, the group will read Mental Disorders & Spiritual Healing: Teachings from the Early Christian East by Jean-Claude Larchet. They will meet on Sunday, March 19 at 5:00PM at El Mariachi in Christiansburg. You can buy your copy here.
We are excited to start Christian Formation classes here at St. Philip’s! Beginning Sunday, January 8, 2023, we will offer three groups of study that will meet from 10:00am-10:45am prior to Mass. Please see below for more information.
Ages 3-5 | Ages 6-8 | Ages 9-12
Children ages 3-12 will be divided into three classes based upon age. The 3-5 year olds will begin the year studying the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the canticles that are sung during Mass each week. Our lesson will consist of previewing the Gospel Lesson for that Sunday beginning in Advent. We will travel throughout the church calendar, learning each season and its associated color.
Christian Formation for children ages 6-8 will focus on the Ten Commandments, especially on what they teach us about God and how they form our Christian lives. Starting in Advent we will examine the life of our Lord Jesus Christ in the gospel accounts and how he calls us to be his followers.
In addition to the aforementioned, all children will learn how our worship comes from scripture and the ancient tradition of the church.
Trish Miller will teach children ages 3-5. Joy Jarrells will teach children ages 6-8. Jasmine Stuart will teach children ages 9-12.
Christian Formation for the adult class will study the Book of Daniel. If you have questions, please contact Seminarian Ian Jarrells.
What is Anglicanism? (Catechesis)
Mass is the heart of our traditional Anglican worship on Sundays. Mass is available at 11:00am and Weekly Mass is available Wednesdays at noon unless otherwise stated by our calendar.
The word Catechesis means religious instruction given to a person in preparation for Christian baptism or confirmation, typically using a catechism. Catechesis is a study for all who desire to learn more about the Christian faith including church history, matters of doctrine, the ancient creeds and how the earliest of Christians interpreted the faith.
We invite you to join our study whether you are already a Christian or someone interested in church membership or simply desire to learn more.
Catechesis class will begin Sunday, October 9, 2022. The group will meet each Sunday from 10:00am-10:45am.
We invite you to worship with us throughout the week. Please join us for Morning Prayer at the church from 7:15am-7:35am Monday-Wednesday.
