Who We Are


St. Philip was organized as a congregation in 1965 and looks forward each year to renewing the mission with a specific focus on what God is calling us to do next.

In 2019 we have a big focus on a couple of key outreach programs:

The Next Season of Life Senior Center: currently open each Wednesday, 9am-3pm, including lunch provided at no cost. Table activities, games, conversation and an opportunity to make new friends!

Lake Kids Ministry Weekend Food Program: each Friday volunteers gather to package foodstuffs that provide 6 meals for one child for nutrition throughout the weekend. The packs/bags are then delivered to our recipient schools: Lake Hills, Triangle Elementary and Eustis Elementary.

Both Next Season of Life Senior Center and Lake Kids Ministry Weekend Food Program are staffed by St. Philip volunteers and friends. You can join in!

In addition to this important outreach, we connect with our community in many other ways: The Lutheran Counseling Center Mt. Dora (housed on our campus), a women’s ministry called “Helping Hands” that does so many things to help others, discipleship/faith growth opportunities open to the community through classes and small groups (we call then Life Groups) and more!

We invite you to check out how you can grow and serve through St. Philip!

Our campus is located in Mt. Dora, Florida and the tri-city area of Mt. Dora, Tavares and Eustis serves as a focus as our local outreach and service. Particular organizations, in addition to those mentioned above, with whom we partner and support in our area include Lake Cares, Golden Triangle YMCA, and Agape House, and Be Free Lake. We participate and partner with other faith traditions in the area through the Mt. Dora Ministerial Association network. On a wider scale, we support the ELCA Global Mission, Panama Mission-Gamboa Union Ministries and Missionary Debbie Ward, and Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Florida.

We are disciples of Jesus Christ committed to making more disciples of Jesus Christ. We are the church of Christ in mission! Our particular Lutheran theological heritage gives us a solid foundation in the grace of God to partner with others in the mission of God!
