Because You Give . . . we worship, we grow in faith, and we serve God and neighbor in the heart of downtown Memphis. In 2015, we expect to enhance our ministries and much, much more here at First Pres! Stewardship letters have been mailed, and you will receive a pledge card and additional contact from a church member soon as well. This is a time for laying new foundations, renewal, enthusiasm and faith in the future of our church, and we hope you will prayerfully consider a generous pledge for 2015 to help us achieve our mission of bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God. STEWARDSHIP COMMITTMENT SUNDAY IS OCTOBER 26.
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.
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!
All-Church Camp is November 14 - 16 at Pinecrest Conference and Retreat Center. Mark your calendars now - the details will be coming soon!
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.
First Pres is now on Facebook, and we'll be sharing information and pictures about what's happening with our members and friends! If you have info or pictures you'd like to suggest for posting on our page, contact the church office.
