MERCY

We care about the needs of the marginalized and oppressed. We take action by coming alongside passionate members of our body who champion these causes. 

 
 
 

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.

Matthew 25:40

 

ADVANCE MEMPHIS


A WAY OUT


HOPEWELL BELIZE


 

Advance Memphis exists to serve adults in the Cleaborn/Foote community by empowering residents to acquire knowledge, resources, and skill to be economically self-sufficient through the gospel of Jesus Christ. For the Fall of 2016, we need your help in 2 ways:

1- Advance Memphis needs meals for its classes. Bring a lunch and stick around to help serve. Contact Jackson McNeil to sign up or to learn more.

2- Become a Work Life Champion Mentor for the November/December class. Champions will meet from 11-12 starting November 9 for 6 weeks. More information here. Contact Jackson McNeil with questions or to sign up to serve.

 

A Way Out is a local program that assists women who desire to permanently leave the sex for sale industry. They provide their clients and their children with counseling, health and dental care, change of residence, enrollment in drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs, education and mentoring. We are grateful to Jana West, one of our members who has championed this cause.

How can you help? Christ City just completed our Toiletries & Intake Kit Drive but there are multiple ways to continue to serve:

1- Sign up to help provide meals to their Tuesday Bible studies via a Christ City Hub. 

2- Join the pool of drivers who give rides to the women. 

3- Become a mentor. 

 

Christ City members Fran and Nathalie Mooney and their four children recently moved to Belize to serve as house parents at an orphanage through an organization called Hopewell Belize. They are responsible for 20 kids and need our support!

UPDATE: We just completed our school supply drive and will be updating their story with upcoming needs. We were able to provide dozens of school supplies and copies of the Jesus Storybook Bible. We also helped our own Samilia Colar fly to Belize to share her craft of sewing with the kids and deliver the school supplies.

Inspired by the Mooney family? Let us know. They are currently looking for interns to serve 10-week to 6-month terms. Short-term mission trip opportunities are available as well. Watch this video for a glimpse at a day in the life of the Mooneys in Belize.
