Room in the Inn-Memphis is an ecumenical ministry that serves people experiencing homelessness. The organization provides emergency shelter and meals during the coldest months of the year—November through March, and also has programs during the summer. We are very excited to be partnering with Kingsway Christian Church on several upcoming projects, including the Room in the Inn program. Volunteers will help make beds on Sundays after service, help in the kitchen with dinner service and clean-up on Mondays, and pick up bedding on Tuesdays. Visit the website for more information.
Collierville Food Pantry serves the food insecure population in Collierville and the surrounding areas, and has a continuing need to stock the pantry with food staples and other household items. The Epiphany congregation regularly collects canned vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, soup, canned meats, dry beans, and canned fruits to support the pantry (in addition to the fresh produce provided by our Epiphany Community Garden!). If you would like to help out by taking fresh produce from Epiphany Community Garden to the food pantry on Thursdays at 8:30 am, please contact Carol Rife.
"Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace." ~ELCA
