God calls each of us to reach our city with the Gospel. Bellevue’s Serve Out Pathways provide specific paths for each member to use his or her gifts to better serve Memphis.


“Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.” Jeremiah 29:7

The Bible teaches us that God has called us to love our community. Cordova Pathways provide opportunities to serve our neighbors and share the Gospel right where God has placed us.

Serve Dexter K–8

Whom you will serve:

Dexter K–8 is a school located only one mile away from Bellevue. Over the past few years, our church has built a great relationship with Dexter students and faculty. Help us invest in our neighbors by being a reading coach or assisting with an after-school Bible club.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Reading Coach (September—April)

  • Students who read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade have an 89 percent graduation rate, but 66 percent of students are behind in reading proficiency by 4th grade. By tutoring 2nd grade students one on one with ARISE2Read, you can help students improve their reading abilities and set them up for future success. Volunteers go to the school and mentor students for one hour a week.
  • Register here for Reading Coach

Bible Club

  • Two after-school Bible clubs meet at Dexter once a week on Thursdays from 3:45 to 5:00 p.m. You can minister to students and facilitate a fun activity for them. Register to help lead a Bible club alongside other volunteers for one of the two groups: 2nd–5th grade or 6th–8th grade.

Serve Rock Creek Apartments

Whom you will serve:

The Rock Creek Apartments are only a mile away from Bellevue’s campus and are home to a diverse community of people.

“The lord of Armies says this: Make fair decisions. Show faithful love and compassion to one another. Do not oppress ther widow or the fatherless, the resident alien or the poor, and do not plot evil in your hearts against one another.” Zechariah 7:9–10 (CSB)

In Scripture, we see a clear call to help those who are vulnerable. The homeless, the under-resourced, and refugees are examples of groups who are at risk in our community. Compassion Pathways offer strategic ways to serve those who are in need by meeting tangible needs and creating Gospel-centered relationships.
