Welcome to St. Philip’s Episcopal Church

We are a community of people who yearn to receive more and more of what God gives, believing  this provides us with what we need and cannot give to ourselves.  St. Philip’s strives to be a Christian congregation, committed to showing up in order that we may remember what it means and what it takes to be God’s people.    Rooted in this faithfulness, we work together to honor and support one another, staying open and grateful for what lies ahead in the life our community.

Since 1871, St. Philip’s has been a place where people have been invited, welcomed, and shaped into being followers of Jesus.  Like the world at large, St. Philip’s has faced the challenges of change and sometime hardship.  Yet, we have chosen to do more than survive.  We choose to be faithful, to be retooled in our faith, and to be people whose faithfulness can be trusted and shared.

Be careful: If you come here you will grow!

    Be Careful:  If you come here you will grow! A Note from Fr. Michael 16 May 2019 Dear Folks: From the personal healing department: I continue to get stronger, although it is a very slow process. I am realizing (at long last) that this recuperation is going to take all

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people.”

Luke 4:18-19

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

So, What do We do as Church?

Claiming the biblical story as our own — especially as that story pronounces the reality of new life– and employing the richness of the Anglican tradition as a guide to living what we believe, St. Philip’s life and ministry focus on four dynamic priorities.  They are: Worship; Christian Formation; Pastoral Care; and Outreach.  It is in and through these four principles of Christian life and ministry that we seek to focus our ourselves and our dedication.

Coming to Church? What to Expect in Worship

Faith is to hear the melody of the future. Hope is to dance to it.

Worship in the Episcopal Church, in general, and at St. Philip’s, in particular, reflects the insight of this statement.  As we stated in the “What We Do” section of this website, worship is the central experience of our lives as church and as God’s people.

Philip was a disciple of Jesus, and when a friend asked him if any good thing could come out their small town, Philip said, “Come and see.” The same invitation and commitment to explore what really matters in life marks the life of St. Philip’s, Easthampton.  Come and see what life with God is like.  Come and see how members of St. Philip’s explore and learn and grow and inquire and mature as people rooted in Christ and open to the vast promises of God.

Can any good thing come out of our little church on Main Street?

We would love to welcome you and to invite you to share with us the love of God lived out together in our little community.
