Sunday School starts for all ages on August 18, and this year there is a terrific opportunity for adults to connect not only with other St Luke saints, but also with other Memphians. Pastor's class will be part of MIFA's Community wide read of The Hundred Story Home, A memoir about finding faith in ourselves and something bigger, by Katy Izard. Books are available for purchase in the St Luke narthex for $10. Katy Izard of Charlotte, NC, explores the reality of homelessness and how she became an advocate for the homeless and mental illness. The author will speak in Memphis on September 10 and 11. MIFA will sponsor a luncheon on 9/11, you can sign up to attend in the St. Luke narthex. See kathyizard.com to view an interview with the author. https://community.mifa.org/our-city-our-story for more information on the author's visit to Memphis.
Family Promise is a highly successful organization solving homelessness in Memphis on the front lines. Please consider being part of this solution at your very own church as we host our families from Sunday, July 7 through Sunday, July 14. There are many volunteer opportunities for everyone - day hosts, dinner hosts, overnight hosts, meal preparations. No job is insignificant in the difference it makes in the lives of our guests. Please prayerfully consider how you can be involved in this life-changing ministry!
