Summer Sermon Series
Reading through the Gospels, you might notice a peculiar pattern - Jesus asks a ton of questions! 307 to be exact. He’s asked 183 questions. He directly answers 3. Perhaps Jesus should be considered the Great Questioner rather than an ultimate Answer Man. Rev Will is leading a summer series following the book “Jesus is the Question” by Martin Copenhaver. Answers can be offered as a conclusion. Questions keep us on the journey of faith.
Lights for Liberty - Memphis Immigration Court
Tonight, July 12th, from 7-9pm at 80 Monroe Ave., The Tennessee Poor People's Campaign with local organizations will stand with Lights for Liberty to shine a light on the horrific conditions and human rights abuses inside America's Immigration industry. We are partnering with national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that fundamental rights are not negotiable and who are willing to protect those rights.
Hear from those who have personally experienced confinement in immigration detention centers! Let's come together in unity and solidarity to bring light for liberty of ALL people.
