Serve a Church Plant 

One of Living Hope’s Church Plant residents, Broderick Connesero, has launched a new church in Orange Mound called the Common. The new church is meeting at Cherokee Elementary and is seeking to bless the school in numerous ways. Join us on Saturday, March 10 (8:30am-1pm) as we join forces with members of the Common to paint a hallway at Cherokee (3061 Kimball Ave, Memphis). Our last project at the school was received with much gratefulness, giving the church plant more credibility with the teachers and faculty – so let’s do it again! Email Greg Jackson (gjackson@lhchurch.com) if you can join us. Lunch will be served.
