Next Event: Saturday, Feb 8
PHLY provides monthly opportunities for Lutheran High School youth from over a dozen different congregations to come together every second Saturday of the month from 4 PM - 8 PM.These monthly opportunities will consist of community building activities, service projects, faith formation, a yearly retreat and a mission trip. PHLY is being lead by Casey Goslin who has over 2 decades of experience in youth ministry retreats and events. Casey will be visiting congregations all year long to make a personal connection with not only the youth, but the families and communities who support them.

Toddlers Welcome in Worship
What a wonderful thing that we have toddlers in worship each week. In order to help our littlest guests feel welcome, there are some baskets of age appropriate toys in the back row of the sanctuary. Parents and grandparents, please let your toddler use them, they are active, growing children of God! Anti-Bacterial wipes are provided for a quick clean up after use.
The rest of us, please keep an eye out for the children and their toys. If their busyness is distracting for you, you are encouraged to move towards the front and center of the worship space.
