What is Serve Out Summer?

WHAT IS SERVE OUT SUMMER?

Plans have changed, vacations have been canceled, and many summer activities are on hold for the time being. Our calendars have become more open, so we must now decide how to spend the next two months. As a church, we want to encourage you to spend your summer Serving Out with Bellevue. There are a number of opportunities offered on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. So we ask you, “How will you spend your summer?”

Ways you can Serve Out:

BIBLES FOR CHINA

Bibles For China Thrift Center is one of many stores in the U.S. operating under The Bibles for Missions Ministry. The Memphis store opened in 2001 and in 2014 Bellevue began a partnership with the store. Operating as a non-profit organization, Bibles for China is able to focus their profits on furthering the kingdom of God. You can serve out with Bibles for China through shopping, donating items, or volunteering at the store.

BLM WORKDAYS

In 2007, Pastor Steve Gaines led our church to begin the Bellevue Loves Memphis Ministry to show Jesus’ love to our city by meeting the practical needs of residents. Since that time, Bellevue members have intentionally stepped outside the walls of the church and embraced Bellevue Loves Memphis as a way of life. One of these outlets is BLM Workdays. This is a day where members of Bellevue go out into our city to share the love of Christ through partnering with schools, ministries, first responders, and communities.

CHRISTIAN MOBILE DENTAL CLINIC

The idea for the Christian Mobile Dental Clinic began as part of our Bellevue Loves Memphis program. The Christian Mobile Dental Clinic works in cooperation with local churches and organizations. If you are in need of dental care, please contact your local church or non-profit organization. Due to high demand, we ask that you do not contact Bellevue’s Christian Mobile Dental Clinic directly.

MISSIONS PROJECTS

Bellevue offers a variety of national and international mission projects each year that contribute to a variety of ministries. These projects strive to serve others, share the Gospel, and be the hands and feet of Christ all around the world. This is also an opportunity to be a part of a team with experienced leaders that will help you grow personally and spiritually. Take a look at the current mission projects and pray about going and taking His Gospel to Memphis and beyond.

PATHWAYS

In 2019, Bellevue introduced Pathways as a way for its members to come alongside and volunteer with established ministries in Memphis.  These Pathways are a part of the 2018 Love Offering, Loving Memphis Like It Matters. The Pathways are distinctly helping Memphis through four different categories — Churches, Para-churches, Education, and Economic Growth. Learn about these ministries and how you can volunteer within our city to share the Gospel.

 

PIONEER EVANGELISM

Pioneer Evangelism (PE) is a church-planting effort based solely upon the ministry of Jesus. This is a ministry that was developed by Dr. Wade Akins as a result of years of ministry as a missionary in Brazil. PE is now being taught around the world and is having tremendous impact in strengthening existing churches and starting new churches. The basis of PE is found in Matthew 28:19-20 and focuses on what Jesus did while on earth – He formed a team, He trained a team, and He sent them out. If you are interested in teaching PE, contact the Missions office for more details at (901) 347-5540. See PE training videos below.
