choral and solo rehearsals paid off most handsomely for the
30 singers, including soprano soloists Diane Johnson Audrey
Miller-Sydney, and Claire Nicholls, mezzo-soprano soloist
Monica Sylvester, tenor soloist Kerry Stubbs, and bass soloists
Charles Carter and Marvin Lowe. The oratorio was con-
ducted by Hugh Manley Knight, AAGO, organist and choir-
master of the St. Philip‘s Senior Choir. He was ably assisted
by instrumental Ensemble Sepia which was coordinated by
Melvin Greenwich, and accompanied on continuo and organ
by H.L. Smith II.M.M.

T              his is the first of what will be a regular column from the Finance Committee.
               The purpose of each article is to share information that will give you, the Parish-
               ioners, insight into the Church’s financial operations.
         Each year a budget is prepared that estimates income and expenses based on histori-
cal data and actual commitments. Income for the most part is derived from the pledges re-
ceived from Parishioners. Hopefully, you recall that in November the sermons focused on
Stewardship. We ended the Stewardship series with Commitment Sunday which was our op-
portunity as Parishioners to commit - or recommit - our “treasures” that we would provide for
the benefit of the Church. One of the “treasures” that we can provide is to pledge to give each
week, month, quarter or year to assist with the day to day expenses of the Church. When pre-
paring a budget, it is beneficial for the Finance Committee and Vestry to know what to expect
as income from pledges so that plans can be made to cover anticipated expenses. Receiving
pledges also provides an indication of when income will be received and enables better man-
agement of the church’s finances.
                                                                                                      One of the “treasures”

their usual activities – students are out of school; adults schedule time away from work; and
organizations suspend meeting for a few months. Even our worship service schedule                      is to pledge to give
changes for July through mid September in anticipation of lower attendance at services.
                                                                                                       each week, month,
        Although schedules are adjusted to coincide with the expected absences, many day–
to-day activities of the normal routine do not change – school buildings are still open, the           quarter or year to

        Since our focus is on our Church, let’s highlight some specific expenses that are in-
curred regardless of the number of Parishioners who attend service:                                          Church.

        Salaries
        Music Ministry
        Altar Supplies
        Insurance
        Maintenance of the Sanctuary, Parish Hall and Rectory


Many times, the decrease in atten-                         dance at the worship service also re-
sults in a decrease in income from                         pledges. As a result, managing the
finances of the Church is difficult                        during the summer months.




        Reading this article has hopefully made you more aware of the Church’s budget proc-
ess. Also, that making a commitment or pledge to contribute to the financial well-being of the
Church is one of the responsibilities of a Parishioner; and that there is a need for you to fulfill
your pledge on a regular basis throughout the year.
        Have you made your pledge and are you fulfilling that pledge on a regular basis?
Hopefully the answer is yes!

S                .T.A.N.D.’s Poetry Slam

                 If you missed S.T.A.N.D.‘s third annual Poetry Slam on Friday, October 29 th, you missed another brilliant
show. Last year‘s Amanda Staine came back with her fierce poems of affirmation and returning champion, Tyreen Sims,
wowed the crowd with her socially conscious urban flow. Newcomers Angelique Israel and Nzinga Shury gave praise their
homelands and emphasized the lessons learned from love and loss. Pedro Jimenez‘s use of tone, his humor and eccentricity
were all modern and served as relief                                     between the more solemn poems of the night.
Andre Milano ended the night with a                                      smooth, romantic sound which resonated with the
entire crowd. This year, the show was                                    not a competition, but just a night of spectacular
poetry. An open call for poets was                                       added to the lineup during intermission. Several
outstanding poets from the audience                                      entertained with their own comedy routine or
poetry. Not one person left the show                                     without giving accolades to all the members of the
youth group which include Shanecka                                       Gulston, Sheryl Gulston, Christopher Corbin (also
a member of the vestry), Kristia                                         Coombs, Bianca Coombs, Aisha Scott, and Ty
Harris. S.T.A.N.D.‘s annual poetry                                       slam is not just another event offered by a club of
St. Philips, but an expected inclusive                                   occasion for the church community.
