Outreach & Service at St. George's

St. George's Outreach Committee helps explore opportunities for our parish family to serve and support our most vulnerable brothers and sisters through ministries in our community. While parishioners may find many ways to connect their hearts to the work of their hands, some primary ways that we support our community are through:

Team Read: Coaches spend one hour each week helping second graders at nearby Oak Forest Elementary School strengthen their reading skills. No experience is necessary, and everything that coaches need will be provided. Contact Margaret Morley ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Missy George ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for more information, or check out our article on Team Read for more details.

Room in the Inn: St. George’s supports this community-wide ministry by helping to provide transportation, meals and supplies for up to 13 of our neighbors who are without shelter during the winter months (November through March). A dedicated space is provided by Germantown United Methodist Church, with whom we partner for this ministry. Contact Mother Dorothy ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you would like to know how you can help.

Labor of Love: Labor of Love is a community service day, held annually on Labor Day, that brings together St. George’s Episcopal, Germantown United Methodist, Germantown Presbyterian, Kingsway Christian and New Bethel Baptist Churches; we partner with MIFA to offer members several ministry opportunities to serve neighbors in need: (1) filling bags for MIFA’s Emergency Services, (2) cleaning yards and doing minor home repairs, and (3) delivering meals in selected areas. Everyone can be part of Labor of Love; there’s something for everyone – from 3 to 103! Contact Mother Dorothy ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for more information about what you can do to be a part of this amazing day of serving others in our community!

More Than a Meal: On the fourth Sunday of each month, St. George’s parishioners gather at Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, in Midtown Memphis, at 3:00 p.m., to serve a meal to our sisters and brothers in need. It’s a great opportunity for fellowship and service. Contact Mother Dorothy ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for more information.

Meals on Wheels: Join those who deliver MIFA meals to home-bound seniors! Bob White ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) can tell you how you can share in this meaningful experience!

Operation Backpack: Each year, St. George’s partners with St. Philip, St. Andrew’s, and Holy Apostles Episcopal Churches to provide backpacks and school supplies for the children and youth of Emmanuel Center. We ask for monetary gifts for the purchase of the supplies (which are purchased in bulk), and we ask parishioners to join us during Operation Backpack weekend at Emmanuel Center – for set-up and for the “shopping” experience with the children and youth. It’s a great way to help a ministry which has been making a tremendous difference in the inner-city for over 25 years. For more information, please contact Charlotte Hayes ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

Operation Joy: Through Operation Joy, St. George’s parishioners are able to “adopt” a child or youth of Emmanuel Center to share Christmas joy by providing some needed clothing and supplies, and perhaps a special longed-for toy. For more information, please contact Mother Dorothy ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

Operation Warmth: Operation Warmth is St. George’s way of providing needed coats for children of Emmanuel Center and Oak Forest Elementary School to keep them warm during the cold winter months. Please contact Charlotte Hayes ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for more information.

Food Drives for Collierville Food Pantry: At least once each year, St. George’s asks parishioners to help “stock the pantry” at Collierville Food Pantry and to provide much-needed items which are shared with those who do not have sufficient food to eat.
