Compassion Party on the Road- Homeless Outreach
Compassion Party on the Road (CPR) began over a year ago as a risky and spontaneous adventure led by homeless staff members of Jacob’s Well and their friends who wanted to help our neighbors on the streets. Today, CPR has become full-fledged, organized chaos where people come from all over the city to join in with the compassion parties our faithful staff members organize each Wednesday night.
We gather weekly at the United Methodist Smith Center at 602 Looney Ave. (off Danny Thomas, North of St. Jude). One group meets at 4:00p.m. to prepare the meals to go out. Our early team goes out at 5:30 and later teams at 6:30. We would love for you to join in the excitement any Wednesday evening. We’ve found that it is a great hands-on serving activity for kids as well. Because of long-term relationships & credibility with our homeless neighbors, we have never had any incidents occur during CPR. Email Ann at CPR@jacobswellmemphis.org for more info.
Join us any Wednesday at 5:30 or 6:30 to serve the people of Memphis in fun and exciting ways, or earlier at 4:00 to help get the meals ready.
Compassion Party on the Block- Neighborhood Outreach
To provide additional opportunities for people to serve the community, we are beginning an initiative called Compassion Party on the Block (CPB). Each week, teams will go out into the neighborhood to get to know neighbors and seek ways we can serve and pray. Then once a month, we will throw a block party in the area we have been canvasing. This is an opportunity to serve your city through building relationships and sharing the good news and hope in Christ. We need weekly volunteers to walk the neighborhood and the following teams to host monthly parties: Cooking/Grilling, Kids/Activities, Setup/Cleanup, Logistics. Please contact us at CPB@jacobswellmemphis.org for more info and to serve.
Join us beginning in June on Wednesdays at 5:30 to prayerwalk and/or meet our neighbors, or help with the block party itself by serving, providing food, etc.
