Meet Memphis

Meet Memphis and Storehouse Memphis

The annual Meet Memphis event each spring has become a great venue for First Evan attenders to meet and serve alongside our Memphis ministry partners. We recognize there will continue to be varying levels of comfort gathering in groups, so we are offering two opportunities this year and hope you can participate with us!

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. If you’re able and willing, the wording of the “Safer in Homes” order still lends us the provision to serve the vulnerable and those in need. As much as ever, we desire to be Christians who embrace the least of these. Here are a few opportunities for you to consider:

  • Food Drive, Friday, March 12, 9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 14, 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. Drop off items in the Fellowship Hall. We are collecting food for Christ's Community Church and Pastor Lemar Walker to distribute to their community. Monetary donations will be accepted to purchase a meat entrée. Sign up for specific items by clicking here.

  • Life Choices of Memphis

    • Bottles for Life Campaign – During the month of January we distributed baby bottles to fill with change to benefit Life Choices. We want to thank you for filling 70 bottles that have been delivered for their campaign. Life Choices is still collecting and counting funds, but we will keep you posted.

    • 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 at abeach@firstevan.org to get connected.

    • 40 Days of Prayer – There is an opportunity to pray for the unborn through March 28. You can register to pray at https://www.40daysforlife.com/memphis.Please contact Cindy Granger 901-336-0736 at cgranger06@hotmail.com for more details.

  • 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.
