- Vestry | Mysite
What is the Vestry? The Vestry is a group of elected congregational leaders within the congregation of an Episcopal church. Its basic responsibility is to: Help define and articulate the mission of the congregation; Support the mission by word and deed; Elect a rector when the need arises; Ensure effective organization and planning; Ensure adequate resources in leadership and in financial stewardship; Manage resources effectively; Determine that appropriate programs, policies, and procedures have been developed and are followed; Assess its own performance. It has some similarities to a board of directors, but it is important to remember that this ministry of leadership is exercised within a church. The success of a congregation is not measured in terms of numbers of members or size of the endowment, but rather in the degree to which it is working toward fulfillment of the mission of the Church.

Scouting Ministry St. Philip opened their doors 13 years ago to Troop 10263. In 2017, they welcomed troops 10339 & 10007. Adding Troop 10343 later that year. In addition to allowing our troops to meet there, they also host our monthly service unit meetings and many additional Service Unit and Troop events. Despite recent surgery, Father Terry gave the invocation at our Investiture and Rededication Ceremony. He offered additional storage space for Troop 10339 during cookie season as well. The Parish assisted in collecting donations for the Memphis Animal Shelter with troop 10007 and the children's home in 2017. We have used their kitchen for World Thinking Day treats and other badge work cooking. The office includes Girl Scout updates and activities in their monthly newsletter as well. We couldn't ask for a better community partner. We are truly blessed to have St. Philip Episcopal Church and their staff as our hosts.
