Online Morning Prayer
Coronavirus is forcing us to get creative about how we do almost everything right now, including how we do church. This Sunday at St. Philip's we'll be meeting via Zoom for a time of Morning Prayer and Bible study, followed by a virtual coffee hour.
Want to join us? Here is what you need to know :
Here is a PDF for the service of Morning Prayer.
Morning Prayer is one of the oldest and most beautiful liturgies in our tradition. It is based on prayers Christians have been praying together for hundreds of years. If you've never done Morning Prayer in the Episcopal Church before, don't worry! It's easy to follow along and I'll give instructions as we go. Everything you will need is in the bulletin.
I'll log on at 10:45am with my coffee. You are welcome to join me to chat and also to ask any questions about moving through the liturgy if you are new to this. Morning Prayer will start at 11am. We'll have a Bible study time together instead of a sermon. After the sermon, people are welcome to hang around and chat.
You can join Morning Prayer via audio or on your phone without needing to download anything but if you want to join in using the camera and audio on your computer or device, you will need to download Zoom and set up an account. It's free! Here is the link to download Zoom.

A Message from the Vicar
Welcome to St. Philip's! We believe God has called us to be a house of hospitality for all people in Hearne and Robertson County. Whether you are looking for a place to worship and grow deeper in your faith, a way to get involved and give back in our community, or just a space where it is safe to be yourself, there is room for you at St. Philip's. We are a small church with a deep faith in Christ's love for all people and strong commitment to sharing that love with each other and our neighbors. Like our patron saint, Philip, says in the Gospel of John, "Come and see!" We invite you to follow the way of Jesus with us, no matter where you are in your life's journey.
