And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.  Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. (Mark 10:13-16)

The Vestry of St. Philip Episcopal Church has made a promise and pledge.   We are making our commitment to grow our children’s and youth ministry.  We have become an older congregation.  The “heyday” of children and youth filling our halls has pasted.  It is time for a fresh start.  Perhaps the COVID-19 crisis has a blessing at the end.  Families will return to faith and to worship.  It will be a new beginning at St. Philip. 

 

We have in place an outstanding children’s Sunday School with "The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd."  We have a small nucleus of youth who serve the church as Acolytes.    We have a base/softball field.  It needs work, but we can improve it to make a place for children and youth teams to practice or have games.  We have a modern playground for children to use.  We have much maintained open ground where soccer fields can be lined out and used.  We have a gym space where volleyball games can be played.  This same space is excellent for youth to meet.  We have our Girl Scouts meetings there. We could also use the gym for children’s basketball games. 

 

Yes, we have the space for children and youth.  Please, help us!  Bring your children and youth with you if you are visiting.  Make this your church home. I guarantee, you will have many grandparents who will love your family and welcome you into this parish home.
