Life Events

From birth to death and at major mileposts along the way, the church has always been present to celebrate and affirm God’s love and faithfulness.

Celebrating God’s Love and Faithfulness During Life’s Journey

In addition to our regular weekly worship life together, St. Philip the Deacon also celebrates a number of special occasions during the course of a lifetime. These include baptism, first communion, confirmation, weddings and funerals. We are happy to walk with you in planning and preparing for these important events.

“Thinking of the Christian life as a journey reminds us that we are going somewhere.” - Alister McGrath

The journey of the Christian life is marked by many life passages with Baptism as the primary one. In the waters of Baptism we are named and claimed as God’s own. From this moment on, all times and occasions of life are accompanied by the presence of God who walks with us and makes himself known to us. Through worship at times of birth, confirmation, marriage, death, and others, our relationship with Jesus Christ is affirmed and celebrated.
