LENT Study February 21 – March 20, 2024
“Waiting for the Alleluias: the meaning of Lent in the hymns we sing.”
 
During this five-week study, we will sing hymns, both old and new, that invite us to think about the nature of repentance and faith in preparation for Easter.  We will consider how hymns reflect their historical context, cast a theological vision of the church at the time, and inspire an emotional response of the singers to God. Through examining the deeper meaning of these hymns, we will consider the way they speak (or no longer speak)to the
Christian experience in today’s world.
 
Dr. Mary Lin Hudson is the Emeritas Professor of Homiletics and Liturgics at Memphis Theological Seminary, having retired after 35 years of teaching.  She is originally from Dyer, TN, and received her BA from Bethel University, MDiv from Memphis Theological Seminary, and PhD in Church History from Vanderbilt University.  She served in various leadership roles in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and now she serves as an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. Her love of singing and piano performance informs the way she approaches teaching about Christian worship. 

Recurring Events:

We are blessed to be a part of this service to our community. We serve our neighborhood & our Memphis neighbors by distributing a 2 week supply of food to those who need it. This is a partnership with the Mid-South Food Bank. This time is near & dear to our hearts because we love getting to know YOU!

In need of food? Come on by! We are at 5330 Park Avenue, Memphis 38119. We have food on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of the month. We begin serving at 9 am and close at 12 pm. The car line forms on Park Avenue and goes east towards Ridgeway Road. Please note, the line begins forming before we open.

Want to serve your neighbors? We always need more hands to help distribute food. Please email Amy Emerson for more information on where to sign-up. This is a great way to bless & be blessed, and get to know your neighbors.

Can’t serve but want to contribute? Did you know that we purchase the food we distribute from the Mid-South Food Bank? We purchase tons (literally) of food for pennies on the dollar to feed from 200-400 people each time we are here. How do we continue to do it week after week? Only because of people like you, with caring hearts, giving to the mission. If you would like to donate, please contact the church office at 901-683-5286 or give online here.

Thank you for being our partners, our prayer warriors & the hands & feet of Jesus!
