On a warm spring Sunday afternoon 13 dear souls from Collierville Presbyterian Church gave their time to serve the inner city of Memphis.  First Presbyterian Church in downtown regularly hosts a Sunday Soup Kitchen for the homeless and disadvantaged of our city manned by area church volunteers.

Our merry team joined in setting up tables, serving soup and sandwiches, taking prayer requests, and assisting in guest’s clothes selections.  Time flew by as physical needs were momentarily met and lasting impressions of “the unseen” in our city were made.  One of the Soup Kitchen administrators reminded us that we were “feeding and clothing Jesus this day “ and we all felt humbled to be there.
