‘Their labor was not in vain’
A rich legacy of over 60 years of involvement, civic activism
Meditating on sixty years of Christian service in the Memphis/Mid-South area these past few months leaves current attendees with much to be thankful for.
The congregational picture you see from about 1992 creates rich memories for members Gary Morgan, Susan Earle and Cleo Henderson who can remember Memphis as a Mother Church from the 1960s and 1970s. Back then dedicated people from Jackson, TN, Jonesboro and West Memphis, AK and Tupelo, MI streamed in diligently to be part of the Memphis Radio Church of God, later Worldwide Church of God and now Community of Faith, a congregation of Grace Communion International, world headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
“A church that’s alive is worth the drive,” goes the motto and hundreds must have thought worshipping in Memphis was well worth it. These generous folks have left the current generation with a great gift: financial resources enabling us to build on a tradition of giving that today includes
- Weekly Meals on Wheels distribution
- Distributing Bibles through Gideon’s International in Bartlett
- Supporting Downs children through the local Memphis STEP UP initiative
- Methodist Kairos program visiting prisoners in West Tennessee
These are a few of the Kingdom Work projects that help us live out the challenge laid down by our Living Head: “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:17).”
Come see us and help us out. We meet Sundays at 11AM at Highland Heights Presbyterian Church, 2855 Morning Sun Road, Cordova, TN. Elevator works, distancing recommended, mask up if you feel the need.
