Help Pastor David Gillard and the Faith Center family feed 20 OR MORE families AND feed another 80 OR MORE homeless. They’re thankful for the people who have already been a blessing!

They want to use half for gift cards for dinner for a night for families and half for homeless grab bags. They literally ran out last time and it broke hearts to turn the others away. Life can change in the blink of an eye for ANYONE; be thankful.

So as you donate, they donate. Faith Temple serves some form of outreach EVERY WEEK, small or large and privately. SO today’s CashApp Friday is dedicated to the FEED and bless others. Summer months are hard on families with children at home.

PASTOR’S ORIGINAL POST

I need a 100 people to sow a $20 seed to help me feed a 100 people this week. Sow today into our outreach movement. The vsion is to supply dinner for 20 families (Dinner on The Kingdom) and feed 80 homeless brothers, sisters and kids. It’s easy to look over this post but it’s also easy to go from eating what you want to eating what you can.

Thanks in advance!

The Memphis Crisis Center is having a big push for new volunteers to meet the growing community need for our crisis line services.  If you are a good listener, we need you.  Our focus is on recruiting EARLY BIRDS and NIGHT OWLS, volunteers who can work morning shifts (7:30 am-1:00 pm) and overnight shifts (11:00 am-7:30 am).

Overnight shifts can be “buddy shifts.”  That means if you would like to work bring a regular buddy (spouse, friend, classmate), we do allow that although they will need to fill out a confidentiality form and other applicable paperwork.

Our next training will be an accelerated training class on Saturday October 14th from 9:00 am-5:00 pm.  The cost per participant is $25.00.  If you have ever wanted to help those who are lonely, sad, struggling, facing a life challenge, or in crisis, this is your chance to become part of the Memphis Crisis Center Family and make a real difference in someone’s life.

We ask volunteers to work one fixed shift every other week.  For more information contact us at volunteers@crisis7.org or at (901) 448-2803.
