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. 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:

1. “A Gentle Answer” Equipping Elective, Wednesday nights, beginning January 6, 6:30–8:00 p.m., In-person or via Zoom.  Proverbs 15:1 says “A gentle answer turns away wrath,” but, for many of us, that is much easier said than done!  In this 8-week book study by Scott Sauls, we will spend three sessions on how Jesus is gentle with us, then spend five sessions on how Jesus’ gentleness transforms our engagement with others. Register soon here.

2. Advance Memphis “Mock Interviews,” Thursday, December 10, 9:00–11:00 a.m., 769 Vance Avenue, Memphis. Advance Memphis conducts “mock interviews” at the conclusion of their Work Life job training program. These interviews are an opportunity for their graduates to practice interview skills before meeting with potential employers. If you have ever interviewed for a job or interviewed for a job you’re more than qualified! Questions are provided in advance, social distancing will be practiced, and masks are required. Please contact Andrew Beach if interested.

3. 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.
