Slip and Slide Cookout! FlipSide kids, youth and parents are invited to a Slip & Slide Kickball Cookout, Saturday, August 12 from 10:30AM-12:30PM.

Kingdom Economics: We invite you to attend a 3-week Bible study series around how to embody God’s economy in our community. What does God’s Kingdom look like in the marketplace? If you own a business, have influence in your workplace, have ever wanted to start a business, or are interested in issues of unemployment and economic disparity, you don’t want to miss this! You will hear from Michael Rhodes and Sarah Lockridge-Steckel as they study God’s Word and share ways to join other DC folk in pursuing God’s economy in Memphis. Classes are August 6th, 20th, & 27th from 8:50-9:50AM at Clayborn Temple.
Women’s Retreat: Join the women of DC for the Women’s Retreat, 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 Crystal Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tracy Anthony at email@example.com. Registration opens July 30, Save the date!
Dinner Groups: We are starting Dinner Groups back up this August- November! This is a great way to get to know your Downtown Church Family. Groups are committed to meet for dinner once a month. Fill out the brief questionnaire here to register. We will get you plugged into a group! Registration is open now until Monday, July 30.
Family Breakfast: Family Breakfast was a hit a few weeks ago! Join us for another one before worship, Sunday, July 16 from 8:45AM-9:45AM at Clayborn Temple. Downtown Church will provide coffee. Bring casseroles, potatoes, fruit or pastries to share! This is a family style breakfast, so bring the kids! Morning worship will follow breakfast.
Family Worship Sundays are about to rock! Starting in July, our FlipSide kiddos will be helping lead a worship song on the first Sunday of each month. The goal is for the kids to feel connected to the congregation and see that they are an important part of the worship service regardless of their ages. We sing this Sunday, 7/2, and are the FIRST song in the service. Adrianna will call the kids down front. What a great chance for our kids to lead us in worshiping God together as a congregation!
Men’s Time (youth): This summer, the young men of DC will be having a special Men’s Time twice a month. There will be BBQ, fellowship and Bible study on topics relevant to young men. Stay tuned for the next one! If you have a youth that is interested in coming, contact our Youth Pastor, Terence Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outreach Opportunity: Streets Ministries is looking for mentors to invest into the lives of middle school students at the Vance site. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or have questions, contact our youth pastor Terence Gray at email@example.com.
