Imagine a place where people come together from different racial, economic, and cultural backgrounds to grow in the gospel and work together to overcome racism, addiction, and poverty. Can you imagine this multicultural group of people on the fringe and those who have compassion for our city? We are called Jacob’s Well.
People who are hurting throughout our city have been turned off by religion and religious people. Jacob’s Well is opening up the doors of a church, but offering a different experience. Those living in poverty have received handouts for years, yet the conditions in our city have only grown worse. At the same time, many enfranchised families desire to alleviate poverty in Memphis yet don’t know anyone personally who is poor. Memphis is thirsty; the living water of Jacob’s Well is plentiful. What better place than here? What better time than now?
We gather at The Smith Center at 602 Looney Ave. (off Danny Thomas North of St. Jude) on Saturday nights at 4:30 to prepare meals, clothes closet, kids community, and provide transportation for our programs from 5:00-7:30.
