A COMMUNITY OF FAITH We worship God in the Anglican Tradition. As we worship, we seek God's truth, grow in Christ, and proclaim God's Word to the world. This is the center of this parish's focus. From this worship experience, our actions of outreach and missions go beyond the congregational boundaries. We work in joy to bring the good news of God's love as witnessed in the Son empowered by the Holy Spirit. The History of St. Philip - Davieshire The Rt. Rev. W. Fred Gates, Jr., Suffragan Bishop of Tennessee, presided at the first service of St. Philip Church on Sunday afternoon, December 8, 1974, at the J. B. Griffin Memorial Chapel in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Brunswick, Tn. Three weeks later, December 29, 1974, Mrs. Ellen Davies Rodgers donated ten (10) acres for a church to be built on land that was a part of Davies Plantation. On January 24, 1976, St. Philip Episcopal Church was accepted as an Organized Mission at the 144th Convention of the Diocese of Tennessee. “Miss Ellen”, as she was affectionately known, would later give more land and most of the means for the construction of the church building. The late Rev. H. Gordon Bernard became Vicar of St. Philip in July,1980. Ground was broken for the new church that same year on September 14, with more than 300 people attending on an afternoon when the temperature soared to 103 degrees. Both Bishop William E. Sanders and Suffragan Bishop Gates took part in the consecration service for the new church on Sunday, November 1, 1981, (All Saints’ Day). St. Philip became the first congregation admitted to parish status in the newly created Diocese of West Tennessee on January 20, 1984, under the Rt. Rev. Alex D. Dickson. Fr. Bernard served as Rector until his retirement in July of 1988. The Rev. John Sterling came to St. Philip in the fall of that same year and served until his retirement in April of 1994. On April 25, 1994, the Rev. Joseph N. Davis began his duties as the third Rector of St. Philip. After thirteen years, in June, 2007, Fr. Davis left to accept a call to the Church of the Resurrection in Franklin, Tennessee. In August, 2008, the Search Committee and Vestry of St. Philip concluded their nationally advertised search for its’ fourth Rector when they called Fr. Terry Street. Fr. Terry came to us from St. John’s Episcopal Church and Barth House. It was with a unanimous vote by the Search Committee and a separate unanimous vote by the full Vestry that Fr. Terry was called. Fr. Terry began his ministry at St. Philip on Sunday, September 21st, 2008 with formal installation to follow on November 20th. St. Philip has grown from "six warm souls" in a cemetery chapel to a busy parish of approximately 200 members. St. Philip has many lay ministries, including an energetic Men's Club, an active women's organization which meets monthly and is very involved in several outreach programs. In 2007, St. Philip became the new home of the Good Shepherd Center for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, which serves the entire diocese. We have a vital Christian education program for children, adults, and nursery. We have a modern "state of the art" playground. While intentionally remaining a traditional parish, we seek to proclaim the good news of Christ to all people in our community. At the ground breaking ceremony in 1980, Miss Ellen said of the land that she had given for the church, "Many types of rewarding crops have been planted on this good land for more than a century by my family. Today we plant the Cross and by the grace of faith, pray for an abundant harvest. As we attempt to build upon the faithful deeds of those who have gone before us, may we serve our Lord so that his harvest may always increase."

Feel-Good Giving 2 Corinthians 9:5; 7: So I (Paul) thought it was necessary to urge these brothers and sisters to go to you ahead of me and get ready in advance the gift you promised to make. Then will it be ready when I arrive, and will show that you give because you want to, not because you to have to. . . You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly. . . A few years ago, a Christian denomination did a study concerning stewardship. The study included various realms of giving, which included the offering of money, time, and talents. What the study concluded was that the people felt a sense of guilt with what they were giving. So contrary to a popular stewardship theme among many congregations, “Give until it hurts”, the real pain was because people felt, as individuals, they could do more, a lot more, than what they were doing. In terms of donations, let us consider “Feel-Good Giving” -- Giving until it feels good! Stewardship is a time of spiritual self-reflection. It is when we take a moment to prayerfully reflect on our commitment to God in terms of sharing our time, talents, and money. As we take this spiritual inventory of ourselves, we need to prayerfully consider what to donate. After all, it is a spiritual promise to our Lord. In this vow, let us look upon stewardship with joy. After all, it is true thanks to God. Donations of our time, talents, and money should be “Feel-Good Giving”.

Thanks! BECOME A VOLUNTEER Volunteer is defined as a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task. There is something more to becoming a person who freely gives time and effort to the work of Christ at St. Philip. The feeling of the heart (sometimes called the reason of the heart) is the foundation of being a volunteer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is our challenge to respond to that feeling. Yes, it is our faith that brings us to give our actions freely. HOW YOU CAN HELP The most important thing you can do is to ! This is a simple act that will make our ministries grow in the parish. When we pray, the Lord hears us. PRAY We need workers who will spend the time in the various ministries at St. Philip. If there is something you want to do, speak to a Vestry member or Ft. Terry. The still small voice of the Lord calls you from your prayers. How will you respond? As you pray, be aware that the Lord may call you into a leadership position. It is a simple matter that sometimes you can go beyond your comfort level. Many times, leadership is not sought out, it just happens. Leadership results from of a prayerful harmony of events. Be open to hear a call that rises from your prayers. Read More >> WE NEED YOUR HELP The Harvest Is Plentiful, the Laborers Few And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:35-38) (
