Plastic Grocery Bags Needed by the Soup Kitchen! We are running extremely low on plastic grocery bags in the Soup Kitchen, which we use to distribute food and hygiene items. If these bags are piling up at your house, we would love to take them off your hands! There is a tub in the chapel to collect them for the next several weeks. Thanks for helping out!
Remember Your Pledges and Offerings! Our busy schedules sometimes keep us from being in worship every Sunday, but the work (and expenses!) of the church continue throughout the year. Please remember to keep your pledges and offerings current.
Because you give…
We worship, we grow in faith and we serve God
and neighbor in the heart of downtown Memphis.
In 2016, we want to continue to enhance our ministries and much, much more here at First Pres!
Together we are working to lay new foundations, and to spark spiritual renewal, enthusiasm and faith in the future of our church. We hope you will prayerfully consider a generous pledge for 2016 to help us achieve our mission of bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.
Pledge cards are available on the round table in the chapel or from the church office.
Please turn in your pledge as soon as possible so we can plan a budget for 2016!
