All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.

Isaiah 54:13

St. Philip Youth – S.P.Y. for the Lord

A combination of all youth programs including the Acolyte Guild, Youth Group, and Youth Sunday School. Participation is encouraged in the church on a local, diocesan, and national level. The youth design a youth Sunday service on the 5th Sunday of each month. They also host several fundraising events such as the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake supper. Each year the youth participate in the Union of Black Episcopalian conference and try to take in one local activity each summer whether it is attending the Ohio state fair or swimming at a local pool.
