The Beginning School

  • At The Beginning School, we seek to create settings where children can explore, learn, play, worship, and enjoy one another as part of the entire St. Philip's community.
  • Opportunities for youth at St. Philip's include service, learning, music and fellowship.
  • Youth are an integral part of worship at St. Philip's — their visibility is evident in acolytes, choir, and drama.
  • St. Philip's offers many and varied opportunities for adults of all ages.
  • Whatever their focus, these groups provide opportunities for the development of Christian community — creating, nurturing and sustaining relationships.
  • Through them there is a place for service, learning, play, and expression of one's interests and skills.
