"Beginners in Faith"
At St. Philip's Lutheran Church, our early childhood ministry embraces young children and their parents to let them know "We Love You! You are important to us. You belong here." We believe that young children aren't just ministered to - they minister to others. It is a really important contributor to faith formation - affirming that young children are disciples already, even before they can walk!
