LOCAL OPPORTUNITIES

The Orchard wants to encourage you to serve people in your home, your neighborhood and our city. Opportunities for service are separated into two categories – Partners and Extended Network. Partners are the ministries/individuals that we directly support with giving or service. Ministries in our Extended Network are ministries that we want to make you aware of because they are ministries that align with our core values and purpose.

Partners

Ross Elementary

The Orchard Church adopted Ross Elementary, a Memphis City School, in April 2011. We support the school by supporting the teachers and administrators and providing needed supplies for daily learning. All our involvement with the school and the community around it is done in an effort to connect with our neighbors in the city, showing God’s love to them through our actions. Watch the videos below to catch a glimpse of our partnership!

 "Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.”   -Jeremiah 29:7


Extended Network

ESL Tutors

Partner with Ryan Bush, a church planter in our Missional Partner Network, to share the Gospel with people from every corner of the globe living here in Memphis by tutoring them in English.  There is no prior experience or skill level required – just a heart to serve.

ESL tutoring sessions are held at Bridgewater School (7015 Raleigh LaGrange Rd, Cordova, TN 38018).
