Women’s Retreat: Registration is now open! Just follow this link.
Our final fundraiser for the upcoming Women's Retreat will be a garage sale on September 30th. Come and shop or donate your treasures to support the retreat scholarship fund. We will take item donations on Sunday, September 24th at the back door by the bathrooms at church or Saturday, Sept. 23 from 12-3 at 2460 Tarbet Dr., Memphis, 38119. Price your items if you can. No pick ups. All leftover items will be donated. Anyone willing to work the day of the sale contact Tracy at email@example.com. The retreat is Friday, Oct. 27-Sunday, Oct. 29 at Victory Ranch in Bolivar, Tennessee. The theme “Be Found” comes from Philippians 3. Our speaker is Kori Porter, a member of the Christian Union Faculty at Princeton University. She will lead our study on what it means to put off our idols and be found in Christ and His resurrection. The cost is $160 which includes meals and lodging. If you are interested in fundraising to offset your costs for the retreat, please contact Tracy Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What a great chance for our kids to lead us in worshiping God together as a congregation!
