Lay Readers

Members of the congregation participate in the service each Sunday by reading lessons, psalms, and prayers. Contact: Blake Newton, 845.737.0759 / Btnewton3@optonline.net. 

Greeters

These are volunteers who greet newcomers to St. Philip's, hand out programs before the 10:30am services, and gather the collection. Contact: David Gordon, 845.424.3369 / gordon@highlands.com; or Cary Danford, 646.919.5638 / caroline.danford@thomsonreuters.com.

Flowers for Friends

Following the 10:30am service on Sundays, parishioners can sign-up to deliver the altar flowers to those in our community who could use a little of God’s beauty to brighten their week. If you know of someone who could benefit from this, or if you are available to deliver flowers after the Sunday service, please be in touch with Belle Newton, newton@highlands.com.

Coffee Hour

Every Sunday, Fellowship Coffee Hour is held after the service in the Parish House. The church provides coffee and volunteers provide a light selection of food. Contact: Jackie Grant / grant@highlands.com.

Comfort Meal Train

We are in the process of organizing a “comfort meal train” for those in our parish who could use some home cooked meals in cases of illness or other times of need. If you would like to be added to the list of people who will be contacted with the opportunity to sign-up to provide a meal when a need arises, please reach out to Carolyn Copeland, carolyn.crcprods@gmail.com, or talk to Jackie Grant or Cary Danford at coffee hour.

Good Books & The Good Book

We have had ongoing book discussion groups as well as informal Bible studies at various times throughout the year. Meetings are often held from 12pm-1pm on Sunday, following the service. Please see our calendar to view any upcoming gatherings.

Books read are chosen by group consensus and have ranged from award-winning non-fiction to poetry to works by Shakespeare and Mark Twain.
