How To Join

You like us! You really like us! How do you join the family of St. Philip?

If you are interested in joining St. Philip, please introduce yourself to one of the pastors or an elder. The pastors greet people at the entrance to the Sanctuary after each Sunday worship service, and elders are usually wearing silver nametags. You and the pastor will schedule some time together to get to know one another, resulting in your being "received" as a member by the Session into the congregation. After being "received", you will be introduced during a worship service.

New members can be received by either:

  • Public profession of faith
  • Certificate of transfer from another Christian church
  • Reaffirmation of faith, for those who have previously been baptized and have made a public profession
  • Once you have joined, you will be assigned a member of the congregation to "Shepherd" your new membership. Your Shepherd will introduce you to other members and to the many activities that go on in the church. We will even survey your talents, interests and willingness to get involved with the many groups that are at the heart of the ministry of St. Philip.

    An orientation class led by a pastor is provided twice a year, and a reception is sponsored quarterly on a selected Sunday, after the 11:00 a.m. service, for all new members that have joined that quarter.

    If you have any questions, please contact a pastor by calling the Church Office or by clicking here.
