Teen Work Camp Coming To Memphis

The Ministerial Alliance of Memphis is gearing up for a teen work camp June 9th through the 13th. Area churches are making a positive move to bring good news to the community by way of work projects. Approximately twenty-five teens from the Memorial Drive Church of Christ in Tulsa will arrive Wednesday evening, June 9th, for the kick-off of the work camp with Troy Barrett at the Baptist church. These teens have conducted several fund raisers in Tulsa to make their way to Memphis. They will stay in local homes and work alongside Memphis teens to make improvements around the city.

June Reed of the Presbyterian Church, Trinity Davis of the Church of Christ, and Jack Sumption of the Christian Church have paved the way in organizing the weekís events.

The teensí work will encompass several possibilities including assisting Roy Monroe and the city crew in painting and filling street potholes. The group will be working with Joe Miller to remodel the new youth center; and also will assist at the school, and make improvements at the Tiger Walking Trail north of the school.

Some of the teens will provide free child-care from 10:00 a.m. Ė 11:00 a.m. at the Presbyterian Church while Terry Rush conducts a study Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings for anyone in the community who would be encouraged to learn how to study the Bible.

ďI didnít get it for the longest timeĒ, said Rush. ďI just couldnít get the Bible to make sense for where I lived. Maybe there are others who feel the same. I simply want to cheer them on as they discover for themselves the fascinating life found in God.Ē

While Sunday will find many back home at their respected churches, the community is invited to a special Sunday School at the Presbyterian Church to hear the teens share their joys of the Memphis week and to view a brief video about the work camp.

Rush will be preaching that morning at the Presbyterian church and that evening at the Downing Christian Church.
