WHAT IS STREET HOPE?
Street Hope TN works to eliminate the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children in Tennessee and provide safe environments to foster hope and healing through Jesus.
One major project for Street Hope is Garland Oaks, which will be the first-of-its-kind safe home for survivors of sex trafficking in Tennessee. They have an Amazon Wishlist of items to help make Garland Oaks feel like home. We will also collect a special offering to benefit Street Hope during our worship services on Sunday, July 4.
JUSTICE FOR ALL
Cokesbury is exploring partnering with Administer Justice, a national non-profit, to establish a legal ministry. Administer Justice equips the local church to provide legal services to those in need. Lawyers and non-lawyers are needed to establish a Cokesbury Gospel Justice Center.
To learn more, join us for an interest meeting: virtually at 2 pm on Sunday, July 11.

Flourish is a new year-long Teaching Group designed to help us learn and flourish in our relationship with God. Each month Charles Maynard will share a short video that introduces the practice that we will consider for the month. We will also have a monthly Zoom discussion group, and reading assignments. We will be referring to our bibles and to the book Celebration of Discipline – The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard J. Foster.
This group will continue throughout 2021.
To be a part of this group, purchase the Foster book from your favorite bookseller and register here to receive the monthly videos and links for the Zoom group discussions. Discussion groups will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at noon and the last Wednesday of each month at 7:45 pm.
