The Book of Common Prayer The Heart of Worship is Love Matthew 22: 34-40 . . . and Jesus said: “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
- About Us | Mysite
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."

The Emmanuel Center The Emmanuel Center served more than 2,000 people each year through programs that inspire spiritual, physical, and educational growth. They provided recreational activities and continued learning and developing programs that include spiritual direction, social service programs, educational enrichment, and organized sports. This has been an amazing community outreach ministry in our city. The Emmanuel Center was an oasis of hope amongst an area with many statistics. Their statistic, moreover, was at a 100% high school graduation rate with kids going on to do great things! For more information, you can check out their website. Click the link . "Emmanuel" St. Philip Episcopal Church contributes to this important ministry with time, talents, and money. We will continue to work with the Emmanuel Center on two specific projects at the Emmanuel Center: Operation Backpack and Operation Joy. Fr. Terry Street & Liz Stephens Operation Backpack “The Emmanuel Center took a strategic pause this past spring and after prayerful consideration by the board of directors, the center has made some structural changes to its program that will better serve the community in which it resides. As a result, the number of children that will be served will be fewer, but the mission remains the same. For Operation Backpack this year, we will be focusing on students from Kindergarten through Middle School. Four Parishes share in this powerful outreach ministry with time, talent, and money: St. George, St. Andrews, Holy Apostles, and St. Philip Episcopal Churches. We are helping children learn and thrive in school, stay in school and build a bright future. We purchase the required school supplies at wholesale prices that will provide a new backpack with all of the grade-appropriate supplies for approximately $25 per backpack. Your financial support of this Outreach Ministry is requested and always appreciated! Checks can be made out to St Philip with a note for Operation Backpack. Or, click this link to give to our online giving site: DONATION. Questions about this ministry should be directed to the Parish office: firstname.lastname@example.org . Operation Joy In early December, St Philip Episcopal Church has the pleasure to host a Christmas part for the children of the Emmanuel Center. We hope to adopt several children for Christmas. For those who may not be able to adopt a child, you have the ability to make a donation to collectively support one or more children. If you are not sure what to buy, but want to support, We would be happy to be your personal shopper- you just need to let us know! Details on the children such as gender, age, sizes, needs, and wants will be available by early December. For several weeks leading up to the party, volunteers are busy making preparations and buying gifts for the children. If this ministry speaks to you, there are may ways to get involved. All gifts should be purchased and ready for delivery, where we will host the Christmas Party at the center for the children. This is always an amazing afternoon and we look forward to sharing it with you! Don’t worry- if you cannot attend the party, we will get your gifts delivered! If you are not able to adopt a child, you may support the purchase of bikes, helmets, and gift cards for the families by making a financial donation. Just mark the contribution “Operation JOY!” and drop it in the offering plate or by making an online gift: DONATION . Please plan to attend the Christmas Party at the Emmanuel Center on a Sunday in mid-December. It is our prayer that it will HAPPEN. Prayerfully look forward to a wonderful afternoon! Parish Discretionary Fund The Discretionary Fund is received the first Sunday of each month during the Worship times. The loose offering and other gifts so designated are given to St. Philip’s Discretionary Fund for the purpose of helping persons in times of serious need.

FOR line Missionary work at St. Luke's Leprosarium and Medical Clinic in Mbalotahun, Liberia We have accomplished so much from the beginning when the mission started in 2006! The clinic is one of St. Philip's star projects. It saved many lives in the village and surrounding area. The infant mortality rate has dropped significantly. With the addition of the Mother Waiting House, it continues to improve. Father Terry and Joe Namie led the effort of restoration of the clinic along with the critical leadership and funding from Bishop Alex Dickson and Mrs. Emily Bailey, who were also part of our fellowship. continue. . . The Manna House of Memphis Ministry A long time and essential ministry that has the active support of St. Philip Episcopal Church is the Manna House of Memphis. The parish has donated much money, time, food, and articles of clothing. Each year, we have a time when we collect coats, socks, shoes and underwear so that the "guests" of Manna House can have warmth from the colder temperatures outside. Manna House of Memphis offers hospitality to homeless and poor guests. Hospitality includes welcoming of guests, and the offering of basic services such as clothing, hygiene items, showers, and serving coffee or other beverages. Staff and volunteers seek to interact with their guests and will learn their names and their stories. Manna House is grounded in the spirit of the Catholic Worker Movement and thus seeking to welcome all guests from the streets with a spirit of hospitality that respects their dignity as human beings. In offering hospitality, Manna House affirms that hosting guests involves not only provides needed material goods, but more importantly honors guests’ humanity and personhood. As stated on MHM website: “We are not a social service agency; rather we are persons welcoming other persons to share ourselves, our gifts, and gifts we have received from others. We seek to know our guests as persons with names, histories, and hopes. We seek to be stewards of God’s graciousness, not possessors of power and privilege dispensing charity from above. We seek to build relationships and we are not out to “save” people or remake them in our own image. We recognize and repent of our racism, classism, sexism, and heterosexism, and we seek to create a community of hospitality in which all are welcomed as children of God.” : The mission Hospitality to homeless and poor persons in the city of Memphis; Advocacy for persons on the streets; Opposition to violence–on the streets, by the police, through imprisonment, executions & war; Witness to the reign of God.
