Join St. Philip’s Frisco Saturday, April 28 for St. Philip's 6K for Water at Frisco High School, to help provide desperately-needed clean water for the developing world.  Take part in a morning of family fun and activity for an extraordinary cause – each walk will provide clean water for one person for life!

Why 6K? The distance is significant. 6 kilometers (15 laps around a track) is the average distance people – usually women and girls – walk to get water for their families in the developing world. Often the walk is dangerous, children miss school, and the water is dirty and full of diseases. Each step taken in the St. Philip’s 6K is one these children won’t have to!

“Water is refreshing, life-giving and necessary for so many of our daily activities” says Mary Hendrix, Director of Mission for St. Philip’s Frisco, “yet so many people live without it”. “St. Philip’s is excited to partner with World Vision on April 28 for the 6K Race for Water, and rally our community to join us in providing clean water to those in need.”

St. Philip’s 6K for Water will be held at Frisco High School (6401 Parkwood Drive) starting at 8:30 am. Run, walk, or even push a stroller around the track and change a life forever (participants are not required to complete the 6K distance in order to join in)!  In addition to the walk, enjoy fun activities for the entire family including photo booth, face painting, snacks, learning stations and more. Each registered participant will receive a medal to commemorate the occasion (this is not a chip-timed race).

Join us Saturday, September 30 at 5:00 pm for St. Philip's first-ever U2charist. U2charist is the term coined for an Episcopal liturgy in which the hymns are comprised of songs by the Irish rock band U2 (winners of 22 Grammy awards with 150 million+ albums sold). U2's music resonates with people of all ages; many of the lyrics incorporate biblical references and the social justice themes for which Bono, the band's lead singer and songwriter, is well known.

St. Philip’s Frisco recently celebrated its 15th Anniversary of “Growing Faith That Impacts the World for Christ” with a weekend filled with worship, fellowship and reaching out to others in very big ways.

St. Philip’s set an initial God-sized goal of raising $15,000 to benefit three outreach partners – Frisco Family Services, Bonton Farms and Embrace TX – and to start a Compassion Fund to help members of their own church family, or members of the community, in times of crisis or need. Each family was also asked to “Find 15” – 15+ items for the local food pantry and 15+ items of gently used clothing or shoes benefiting the Trusted World organization.

God obviously had even bigger plans! St. Philip’s Rector, Fr. Greg Methvin, summed up the milestone moment. “St. Philip's launched 15 years ago with a strong heartbeat to serve in Christ's name.  That pulse is stronger than ever as evidenced by the generosity of our parish:  2,200 lbs of clothing donated for the needy, 500 lbs of food gathered for the hungry, and $44,000 raised for meeting a variety of needs in our community.”  

St. Philip’s also welcomed back founding Rector, Fr. Clay Lein and his wife Jill for the weekend for a special Anniversary message at all three weekend worship services and a celebratory breakfast on Sunday, April 30th.

Thanks be to God for 15 wonderful years of Impacting the World for Christ, and to a continued future of following His call to serve others in His name! Visit https://www.stphilipsfrisco.org/ to learn more.
