The Just Older Youth Group is the newest ministry of the Bethel Church. The J.O.Y. Group meets every other Wednesday for fellowship and lunch. Plans are in the works for day trips so watch for upcoming events. Everyone who has time during the day is invited to attend.
The Presbyterian Women meet on the second Monday at 6 p.m. of each month. All women are invited to study and are invited to fellowship.
The Soup Kitchen was started more than 20 years ago to provide a hot meal on Sunday afternoons to the homeless and hungry of Memphis. Prior to our Soup Kitchen, there was no organization that offered such a service on Sunday. First Presbyterian Church provides the facilities and the leadership while volunteers from churches throughout the Mid-South assist in the weekly food service. You don’t have to be Presbyterian to help in the Soup Kitchen; Temple Israel and St. John’s Greek Orthodox church send volunteers.
We currently serve an average of 150 men, women and children on Sunday afternoon. Twenty to 24 volunteers assist each Sunday. In addition to the hot meal we hand out hygiene kits containing the basic essentials and a few extras when our supplies permit.
The Soup Kitchen also sponsors special occasions like a Christmas Dinner where gifts of warm winter clothing and accessories are distributed. We also serve a festive meal on “Souper Bowl Sunday” raising money that will support our services in the coming year.
