Meet Memphis

Find out how to Meet Memphis...all year long!

Opportunities to love and engage our neighbors! We want to continue to provide healthy and appropriate opportunities to love and engage our neighbors. Social distancing is important, of course, and we want to abide by the protocols being encouraged from local officials. As much as ever, we desire to be Christians who embrace the least of these. Here are a few opportunities for you to consider:

  • Advance Memphis Volunteer Meal Providers, February–June 2021. Volunteer Meal Providers are an essential part of Advance Memphis' program and they continue to serve students safely throughout this pandemic. Would you consider to serve students safely throughout this pandemic. Would you consider signing up to provide or sponsor a lunch for our Work Life students or warehouse team? Sign up here.

  • Christ's Community Church Community Health Fair, Saturday, May 8. Christ's Community Church will be hosting a Community Health Fair. For more information or to volunteer, please contact CCC's pastor, Lemar Walker, directly at 596-5170.

  • Red Zone Ministries Food Distributions, Tuesdays, May 11 and June 8, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. Red Zone will be hosting two food distribution days for the 38114 area. They will need volunteers to help organize and distribute food. Please park your car in the Orange Mound Community Center at the corner of Park Avenue and Hanley Street. Turn north on Hanley from Park and the parking lot is on your right. Sign up here.

  • Book Discussion: A Meal With Jesus (Coed)
    There is gospel opportunity in the everyday experience of eating a meal—even takeout! We will read Tim Chester’s book, A Meal with Jesus, with each chapter of the book drawing from a chapter in Luke’s gospel. Our goal will be to adopt the example Jesus modeled for us during His ministry on earth. Jesus was seriously into eating and drinking—so much so that His enemies accused him of doing it in excess. Though we will share a simple potluck meal together each week, this is not a cooking class! It’s a conversation, for both men and women, about how meals can become an opportunity for gospel conversations. Books can be purchased from Amazon here. Register here.

    Facilitators: Memphis Ministries Team, abeach@firstevan.org 
    Location: Mark and Kellye Stelling’s home, 4796 Gwynne Rd., (901) 857-7117
    Dates: Tuesdays, June 29–July 20, 6:00 p.m.

  • Life Choices of Memphis

    • Baby Coaches – There are a few great opportunities to serve with the Life Choices ministry. There is a volunteer need for baby coaches who will befriend expectant mothers as they walk throughout and after their pregnancy. Contact Andrew Beach or Melissa Mathis to get connected.

    • Prayer Warriors, Weekdays, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to stand outside Planned Parenthood (2430 Poplar) with a counselor who speaks with women going in for services. You can pray quietly while standing alongside the counselor one hour per month, week, year, etc. Contact Cindy Granger for more information.

  • Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Fundraiser – Rather than setting out boxes this holiday season, FEC Kids and Memphis Ministries are partnering to raise funds for Operation Christmas Child. Our goal is to raise enough money to pack 500 boxes!  At $25 a box (including the cost of shipping), that's a total goal of $12,500! All money raised will be used to purchase toys and other supplies to fill and ship 500 shoeboxes for Christmas 2021 (due June 2021). After we reach our fundraising goal, FEC Kids and Memphis Ministries will host an OCC Shoebox Packing Party this summer (2021) after the conclusion of VBS. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
