Impact in our community.png

First Church has been making an impact in the Memphis community throughout it’s nearly-200-year history. Currently partnering with several local non-profit organizations, we are able to provide meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, community for the lonely, and hope for those in despair. 

Through adversity, fire, and rebuilding, our heart for our community is strong. We believe we are called to continue providing the most fundamental needs to local individuals and families - food, shelter, worship, and community. 

It Starts with You.png

This will be a multi-year campaign in which we will encourage individuals in Memphis and the surrounding communities to give offerings to support this project and our continued growth in serving the inner city. Most gifts will be given over a multi-year period with a suggested timeframe of three years. We anticipate some individuals will be able to give large gifts in the form of publicly traded stocks, unencumbered property, assigned life insurance cash value, gifts-in-kind and/or cash. 

Funds from Build Up Memphis will enable us to complete construction and open the doors for ongoing ministry in downtown Memphis.
