Welcome to St. Philip Lutheran!

We gather for worship each Sunday morning at 8:30a.m. and 11:00a.m. (9:30a.m. from June 16 through August 4) at 8115 Williamson Road in Roanoke, VA. But we are more than a building. We are a congregation that has been in existence for more than 50 years. We are a growing congregation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds seeking to be disciples of Christ. Check out the rest of our website to discover some of the ways that we try to live out our calling as disciples.


Our Mission Statement

Open tomb!  We are people tied to the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here.  ~Mark 16: 5-6


Open hearts!  We are people transformed by this good news, marked with the cross of Christ forever!

We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you.  There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours.  In return—I speak as to children—open wide your hearts also. 

 ~2 Corinthians 6: 11-13


Open doors!  We are people called to proclaim good news with words of invitation and welcome!

I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.  ~Revelation 3: 8

Once again before Thanksgiving, churches of the Hollins community will gather for worship and to give thanks.  This year the worship service will be on Sunday, November 23, at 7:00 p.m. at Northview United Methodist Church at 521 Ridgecrest Rd.

Participating churches are Enon Baptist, Summerdean Church of the Brethren, St. Philip Lutheran, Northview United Methodist, Hollins Church of the Nazarene, and First Baptist of Hollins.

On Thanksgiving Saturday, November 29, 3:00-5:00pm St. Philip will again serve the wider community (the extended family so to speak) a Thanksgiving meal.  We will serve those who come to join us in our Fellowship Hall as well as serving a meal, along with Abundant Grace Assembly, at the Melrose Ave Goodwill Jobs Campus on Melrose Ave.  We need LOTS people to cook turkeys (save those drippings!), hams, and pies.  We will need two crews of people to serve – one here and one at the Goodwill.  There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex with duties listed.  You can also make financial donations for the Feast – write Feast at Philips in the memo line of your check and place it in the offering.  Please see the November newsletter or one of the pastors for more information.

Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), expressed her profound concern for members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land in a July 17, 2014, letter to that denomination's bishop, the Rev. Dr. Munib A. Younan.
