The Saint Philip AME Church Acolytes was established in 2000 by Mrs. Nettie Moore. The Word Acolyte means an assistant, a helper, an attendant, a person who serves. The Saint Philip AME Church Acolytes are candle lighters. We give of our service by bringing the light of the Lord into the Sanctuary.
Our scriptural foundation comes from John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people he said, I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
