We gather throughout the week for a variety of spiritual practices. The best way to stay up-to-date with the goings on at Evergreen is to sign up for our newsletter. You can subscribe at the bottom of this page.
We gather for worship on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. Come early for coffee and donuts beginning at 10:30 a.m. We practice the ritual of communion the first Sunday of every month. Parking is available in the small lot behind the building and along Overton Park Ave. A nursery is provided for infants, babies and toddlers from 10:45 a.m. through 12 p.m. on Sundays. The room is just off the main gathering space, and parents are welcome to come and go from that space during worship as they need. Children of all ages are also welcome to remain with their parents in worship.
Some dress up and some dress down, come as you are.
Beer and Hymns
Over the last few years "Beer and Hymns" gatherings have taken place across the country. Evergreen Presbyterian Church is thrilled to bring Beer and Hymns to Memphis! Once a month we gather on a Friday evening, tap a keg, and sing hymns. These gatherings are a perfect opportunity to wind down and create community through song. Here is a great article from Sojourners about the impetus behind Beer and Hymns. Check out our Facebook page to find out when our next gathering is planned.
The parenting circle gathers parents around the idea that parenting is a spiritual practice too. We've read stories, learned about raising race-conscious children, watched movies that help us talk about death with our children, and moved together with yoga to think about raising children who love their bodies. Right now we gather on an occasional basis. Sign up here to find out about our next adventure together.
The Evergreen Choir is a mixed ensemble of 10-12 voices who perform regularly for Sunday morning worship and for special services as needed. The chorus offers a variety of musical selections, from Renaissance polyphony to modern anthems, from American folk tunes and African-American spirituals. The choir is open for any willing singer who loves to make music and enjoy the fellowship of fun, committed singers.
Join us on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 - 7:15 PM! We also have occasional pop-up choir performances for special services like Christmas Eve. Sign up below for the newsletter and we'll keep you informed.
The Evergreen Fellows Program places Rhodes College students in areas of mentored service and leadership in the Evergreen Presbyterian Church and its ministries with the community. Fellow positions are designed to provide effective linkages between the College and the Congregation during the transition period of Evergreen’s physical presence on the church property as well as prototype ministries that envision the congregation’s future in our new building at 1567 Overton Park Avenue!
The Fellowship Program involves Evergreen in the educational mission of the College and provides the benefit of academic engagement to the renewal of the congregation. The work of the Fellows is meant to revitalize existing ministry and create new ways for Evergreen members and the Rhodes community to work together.
See our fellowship description and applications below and email our Mission Developer, Mary Button at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in applying!
