Mark Your Calendar:

Parish Retreat at Kanuga is October 25-27!

Kanuga is calling your name! Don’t miss your chance to join your St. Philip’s family for the annual parish retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Hendersonville, NC. There are daily opportunities for worship and fellowship, and there’s also time for you to explore the grounds and the Hendersonville area on your own if you’d like (see sample schedule below).

This year’s speaker is the Rev. Dr. Kendall Harmon, Canon Theologian for our diocese, and the theme of the weekend is “Graciously Engaging the Consuming Fire: Biblical Reflections on Prayer.” Do you have kids? Activities and programming for children and youth, along with nursery care, are provided by St. Philip’s youth and children’s ministry teams so that parents can relax and enjoy Dr. Harmon’s inspiring talks knowing their dear ones are happily engaging in activities that interest them. 

You may also stop by the church office front desk to register. 

Questions? Call the church office at (843) 722-7734 or contact Angela Clark at aclark@stphilipschurchsc.org.
