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:

  • Life Choices of Memphis

    • 40 Days for Life Campaign Dates, Tuesdays, September 28–October 26, 6:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., Choices (Memphis Center for Reproductive Health, 1203 Poplar Avenue). We are looking for volunteers to participate in the 40 Days for Life Campaign. Volunteers are asked to pray and hold a sign (if they wish) and must sign a release agreeing to a peaceful presence. This is all about praying to end abortion in our city by letting these women know they have options. Sign up for a one-hour shift at www.40daysforlife/Memphis. There will be two people per shift. For questions or help signing up, contact Cindy Granger at 901-336-0736.

    • Baby Prep Coaches – You can be trained to be a Baby Prep Coach, which involves following the mother for her 9 months and working through a prescribed notebook. They currently have a waiting list of moms needing baby coaches. The contact for Life Choices and any questions you may have regarding Baby Prep Coach training or any other volunteer opportunities can be directed to Shelley Sumner. Please click this volunteer form to view it, fill it out, and send it via the information at the bottom of the form.

    • 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. No training or volunteer form is required to be a prayer warrior.

  • Forgiveness House needs volunteers to provide meals any night, Monday–Thursday, for 10 people. Please contact Jordan Bernardini at (901) 692-6649 or Bob Sauter.

  • A Way Out Ministries:

    • Women's Alumni Bible Study Food Volunteers, Tuesdays, 5:45 p.m. Drop-off time. Every Tuesday AWO has a bible study for alumni who graduated from our program and we have a food committee where volunteers sign up to bring food for about 20 people. Contact Andrew Beach for more information.

    • Agape House Extreme Makeover (On-going need)—AWO partners with Agape House, a safe-haven for abuse victims, and it is undergoing a complete renovation. A team from FEC recently came out and filled a whole dumpster! They still need help with a few things to complete the renovation like, finishing the firepit, putting together beds once they arrive, etc. Contact Andrew Beach for more information.
