Seder (Passover) Meal

The Passover Seder is a family meal held in observance of the command of the Lord to tell each new generation the story of God’s miraculous redemption of his people Israel from slavery in Egypt. It engages all one’s senses, so that each individual – even a child – gets to think of themselves as being redeemed from bitter slavery to enjoy complete freedom. The Hebrew word “Seder” (pronounced “say-dehr”) translates to “order” in English and there is a set order to the “Telling” (Hebrew – Haggadah). Jesus celebrated Passover with his disciples and filled the observance with a much fuller meaning for all his followers, both Jewish and Gentile. The communion service arose from the elements of Jesus’ Seder meal, so it is fitting that we should celebrate this meal together as a Christian community on the night Jesus celebrated it and do it as he commanded “… in remembrance of me.” (See Luke 22:7-23)

Children’s Ministry Co-Director

Meet Laurie

I am a military wife (two of my children were born in Japan) who was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom until my youngest child was in Kindergarten. My husband, Anthony (who goes by “Mike”), is working as an Air Force Recruiter. We are proud parents to Nate – 15, Eliana – 12, Ian – 11, and Gavi – 8. I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching PM Kindergarten at Robinson Township Christian School. The Lord has given me a passion for working with children from a very young age and it truly gives me such joy to be able to do so. I am super excited about being able to serve here at St. Philips! I hope God’s love and light will shine through me as we work together to raise up children who love the Lord.

Children’s Ministry Co-Director

Meet Clair

I serve as a Co-Director of Children’s Ministry here at St. Philip’s. My family and I have been attending since August of 2022; my husband, Philip, and I found St. Philip’s after moving from the Philadelphia area where I taught second grade at a small Christian school. We have two children–Noelle and Philip Jr.–and a mini goldendoodle named Ginger. You might find us strolling around the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden or searching for a Korean restaurant to call our favorite. I pray that God will work in and through our Children’s Ministry to show young ones and their families the wonders of His marvelous love, both within our church and throughout the community.

Amaris Cruz

Ministry Intern

Meet Amaris

What is your role at St. Philip’s?
I am the ministry intern. I get to have my hand in a lot of the ministries, from the youth to worship to administrative work and social media. I get to serve in so many different capacities and ministries.

How did you end up here?
I was in a 3 month discipleship program called Unaltered where I lived in Darlington, PA on a place called Prayer Mountain. Through that program, I was connected with Jade and given a summer internship on the worship team. Through that, I was able to help in numerous other ministries. StP then decided to take me on for a year as their ministry intern.

What is your goal/prayer/hope for the work you do serving St. Philip’s and the community?
Coming to St. Philip’s, one of my goals has been to further find the direction the Lord wants me to go in ministry. The Lord has already grown me as a worship leader and is consistently changing my heart towards serving others. I hope to love this community well and serve wherever there is a need. My prayer is that I’m continually given opportunities to say yes and honor the Lord and the church through serving and loving those around me.

What personal items (families, hobbies, quirks) would you like to share with the world, if any?
One of my goals in life is to own a thrift store. Thrifting, fashion and clothing have always been things that I loved and am passionate about. I believe it would be a great opportunity to minister to others and love on whatever community I land in well. It’s something I could talk about for ages. Next time you see me, ask me about it!
