Celebrating Together, online

Our building is closed, but our hearts are open, online. Join us for worship this Sunday at 10 am via Zoom where we continue to gather every Sunday.

Statement Against Systemic Racial Violence

We believe that brown and black lives matter. In the face of ongoing persecution and lynching, God stands in solidarity with them. As Christians, we sing with Mary that our “Lord has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly” (Luke 1:52). As followers of Jesus, a man of color executed by the state, we stand with God in solidarity with those who are oppressed. We stand troubled and emboldened by the Spirit, not just to cry out for justice but also to work for systemic change. God loves all; love requires us to practice justice so that we can live in a world where all can flourish without fear.

Packing with Dignity!

Backpacks hold more than school books and hiking gear! A generous and faithful group of women from St. Philip the Deacon have been sewing and filling 200 string backpacks with personal care items for men and women.  The brainchild of Viola Horton, each bag is filled with the specific needs of men and women in mind.

Sermons

Know Justice, Know Peace

We live in a world where saying that black and brown lives matter means that white lives do not matter, because we have created that world. We have created a world infested with the lie that white lives thrive at the expense of black and brown lives. We have created a world where to know justice is to know violence. Yet, the judgement of God is to recognize retribution and injustice for what it is, destructive, and to invite us to live in a world where to know justice is to know peace.
