Room in the Inn @ Emmanual United Methodist Church Gym
Together with over 55 other faith communities across Memphis participating in Room In The Inn (RITI), Emmanuel United Methodist Church transforms its gym to provide emergency shelter and meals for up to 15 guests every Saturday night during the "winter" months (November 1 - March 31) of the regular RITI season, and the 4th and 5th Saturdays May - September. We call this Holy Hospitality. Fellowship and sharing are critical elements of this intimate experience. You may sign up for more than one "shift" (task) during the event, if desired. Our address is 2404 Kirby Road, Memphis, TN 38119 - park and enter by the gym door behind the church.
In addition to volunteering, if you would like to help us by purchasing supplies, we have an Amazon wishlist where you can purchase items, and they will be delivered directly to our address.
Children under 15 are welcome, but must be accompanied by parent.
