St. Philip is a faith community that seeks to live out God's grace in genuine, honest, and faithful ways. That means connecting to God by connecting to one another. St. Philip is connected to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, through whom we live out God's grace in an even wider circle.

I have been privileged to serve with this great community of faith since the year 2000. Pride may be sinful, but I unabashedly confess I am proud of the church we are together. I am always excited about what new thing God is doing with us and cannot wait to see what God has in store for us today. Search me out so we can discover today's joy together.

Each child is encouraged to develop their worldview in a way that is both empathetic and responsible - in addition to learning academics and social/emotional skills. Our staff strives to be tour guides in the child's learning while providing a safe and appropriate space for the child to explore, learn and grow.
