Summer Sundays

Starting June 4 our worship service will be held at 9:30 am every Sunday during the summer and will return to the regular time on Labor Day weekend, September 3. This earlier worship time will provide an opportunity to serve the local summer camp staff and to get out of the house early and enjoy the day.

Good Friday and Easter Services

April 14, 12 pm
Please join Pastor Jeremiah and Pastor Mary Blessing for a noontime Good Friday Service to be held at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 5271 Scotts Valley Drive.

Two Easter Services will be held this year on Sunday, April 16. There will be a “sunrise” service at 7 am at the fire pits at Twin Lakes Beach and a more traditional Easter service at 10:30 am in the church sanctuary.

Those who are able are encouraged to park in lower parking lot behind the church.

Easter Flowers are Welcome
You may bring lilies, daffodils or tulips to the beach or to church on Easter Sunday and place them in the sand or across the front of the platform. You may include a note on the pot if your flowers are in memory of or in honor of a loved one.
