  • Children & Youth | Mysite

    And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. (Mark 10:13-16) ​ The Vestry of St. Philip Episcopal Church has made a promise and pledge. We are making our commitment to grow our children’s and youth ministry. We have become an older congregation. The “heyday” of children and youth filling our halls has pasted. It is time for a fresh start. Perhaps the COVID-19 crisis has a blessing at the end. Families will return to faith and to worship. It is a new beginning at St. Philip. We have in place an outstanding children’s Sunday School with "The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd." We have a small nucleus of youth who serve the church as Acolytes. We have a base/softball field. It needs work, but we can improve it to make a place for children and youth teams to practice or have games. We have a modern playground for children to use. We have much maintained open ground where soccer fields can be lined out and used. We have a gym space where volleyball games can be played. This same space is excellent for youth to meet. We have our Girl Scouts meetings there. We could also use the gym for children’s basketball games. Yes, we have the space for children and youth. Please, help us! Bring your children and youth with you if you are visiting. Make this your church home. I guarantee, you will have many grandparents who will love your family and welcome you into this parish home. ​ Dwight L. Wagner Sr. Warden of the Vestry 2020 ​

  • Outreach | Mysite

    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.

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.

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!

For several weeks leading up to the party, volunteers are busy making preparations and buying gifts for the children.

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. ​ If you want to learn more about the Manna House of Memphis, donate money or become a volunteer for this worthwhile ministry, we invite you to visit their WEBSITE: https://www.mannahousememphis.org/ Beehives for Thistle and Bee St. Philip has partnered with Thistle and Bee to place four beehives on the campus (near the north-east corner of the parish grounds}.

  • The Book of Common Prayer | Mysite

    The Book of Common Prayer ​ I have been amazed during my home visitations and especially during this time of personal and home meditations and worship, that many Episcopalians do not have their own copy of The Book of Common Prayer. Say what? EVERY Episcopalian should have their own copy or at least a family copy of our beloved prayer book. Among other things, we are known as Lenten People and as Easter People but Anglicans, especially, are also historically known as Prayer Book People. The Book of Common Prayer is not just a Sunday prayer book that is in the pews for Sunday worship. It was also designed to be used by the people of this faith community for home devotions, meditations and worship. The early vision of the Prayer Book was that it was to be used for the benefit of the church for worship and for the private use by the people. Until you can get your own copy, the download link of The Book of Common Prayer should be useful. The Book of Common Prayer. Fr. Terry + ​ ​
