Welcome to the St. Philip’s Episcopal Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. St. Philip's has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for Holy Eucharist on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. We also invite you to participate in any of of our many parish ministries .
New Group!! Adults Living Alone Facilitator: Barbara Crain
First Meeting: February 1st at 1:00pm in Parish Hall
How does our relationship with God and the church change as we age? In order for
St. Philip’s to be more in-touch with all its people, I would like to organize a group of adults who live alone, as we have many issues in common and could benefit from the camaraderie.
A system of calling one or two people could be organized. If you have an interest in exploring this relationship, please contact Barbara Crain at church or via phone 859-733-0008 or 859-516-3223.

Web Site Addition: Sermons Available on Web Site
St. Philip's Episcopal Church has added a new feature to our web site which we hope will be a ministry to those unable to attend Sunday worship. The Sunday sermons are recorded and available for listening or downloading . The sermons are MP3 files and are compatible with iPod and other MP3 players. They can also be played on a computer using QuickTime, Realplayer, Audacity, iTunes or most other audio players. Some ebook readers will also play MP3 files.
