Lunch in the Soup Kitchen for Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday: February 1, immediately following worship. For our February congregational luncheon, we will meet in the fellowship hall immediately following worship and enjoy the soup prepared by our hard-working Soup Kitchen staff. They will make extra just for us, and they enjoy serving us the delicious soup and sharing their stories of helping and ministering to the homeless each week. Please plan to stay, share the meal and meet our Soup Kitchen staff and volunteers. It is a good time to say thank-you for the work they do in the name of Christ each Sunday afternoon.
First Thursday Luncheon: Thursday, February 5 at noon at the Holiday Inn-University of Memphis. Please contact Mary Yarbrough or the church office by noon on Tuesday, February 3 to make your reservation.
Urgent Clothes Closet Needs: Our clothes closet is in urgent need of the following items: new women's cotton briefs in sizes 6, 7, and 8; women's sports bras; women's ankle socks; gently used men's jeans and khakis in waist sizes 30 to 36. Donations may be placed in the container in the chapel downstairs or dropped off in the church office.
Shoe Boxes and Plastic Clothes Hangers Needed for the Clothes Closet: If you have extra shoe boxes and plastic clothes hangers crowding your closet, please bring them to church and put them in the underwear bin in the chapel. No wire hangers, please.
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.
