Anglicanism: The Once and Future Church
The Rev. Jeffrey Miller
Parish Hall, 9:30 a.m. (begins Rally Sunday, September 12)
Archbishop William Temple once wrote, “Our special character and, as we believe, our peculiar contribution to the Universal Church, arises from the fact that, owing to historical circumstances, we have been enabled to combine in one fellowship the traditional faith and order of the catholic church with that immediacy of approach to God through Christ to which the evangelical churches especially bear witness, and freedom of intellectual inquiry, whereby the correlation of the Christian revelation and advancing knowledge is constantly effected.”
Join the Rector for a multi-week study of the Anglican Tradition and learn why Anglicanism has something unique to offer as part of the Christian witness in the Twenty-first Century.

Foundations is one of the best ways to get connected at St. Philip's. This semester-long course explores the foundational beliefs of the Christian faith in an environment that allows for conversation and connection. For those who feel led to join St. Philip's, the class will culminate in the service of Confirmation when the bishop makes his annual visitation (typically on the Sunday after Easter). Foundations is offered both in the fall (beginning a week after Rally Sunday) and in the winter/spring (generally beginning the Sunday that falls after the New Year). Both newcomers to the church and longtime members will find the journey of Foundations to be an enriching, encouraging and spiritually enlightening experience!
Foundations is an adult Sunday School class for those who are:
- New to St. Philip’s, or
- Looking for a refresher on what we believe as Christians and why we believe it, or
- The parent of a student currently enrolled in our Confirmation Class, or
- Interested in:
- Being baptized
- Becoming a member of the St. Philip’s family through Confirmation/Reception
- Having their infant baptized
- Getting connected into the St. Philip’s community
- Reaffirming their faith in Jesus Christ
