Highpoint Students + CREW has partnered together with Memphis Athletic Ministries to invest in our city! Why? Because SERVING TOGETHER is an AMAZING way to GROW as a community....AND it's a ton of fun. PLUS, this is an EASY way for ANY STUDENT and ANY LEADER to get to serve. NO SPECIAL SKILLS are required!
The first serve opportunity is coming up on Friday, October 28th! See details below and sign up with your CREW!
WHAT IS MEMPHIS ATHLETIC MINISTRIES?
MAM is an organization that exists to help build godly youth in under-resourced neighborhoods by teaching them to love God, love others and love themselves. Their vision is to develop youth into Christ-centered, productive adults, positively impacting their families and neighborhoods. They accomplish this through team sports, discipleship groups, after school programs, bible studies, and more.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE DOING THIS FRIDAY?
We are partnering with the Memphis Police Department to help host a FALL FESTIVAL for the students at the MAM Magnolia Center. This is a GREAT opp for us to get to know the MAM Coaches, Staff and Kids with whom we will be serving throughout this year.

IF I'M A CREW GROUP LEADER, WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO ASK MY STUDENTS TO SERVE WITH ME?
Honestly? JUST ASK! Shoot them a text, send an email, give em a a call - let them know how cool it will be. Be understanding if kids cannot come (if plans are already made or games are already being attended) but definitely encourage them to come the next time. Utilize the STUDENT INFO LISTS which have been provided to you to reach out to your kids AND parents, inviting students to this awesome SERVE opportunity on FRIDAY NIGHT. (PS - If parents WANT to come and help serve - that's A-OK too!)
IF THE REST OF MY CREW GROUP CAN'T COME, CAN I STILL COME?
Yep! If you (or any of your students) want to come on their own and serve, that is A-OK! Just shoot me a text at 901.734.9489 OR an email at email@example.com.
IF I'M NOT A CREW GROUP LEADER, BUT I SERVE IN STUDENTS, CAN I COME?
ABSOLUTELY!!! The MORE THE MERRIER as far as we are concerned. We would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have as many Highpoint Students volunteers AS POSSIBLE!
WILL THERE BE FOOD?
There will not be food (free or otherwise) at the Festival, so if you typically get hungry during that time, please bring a snack OR grab dinner before or after with your CREW.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANY CASH?
Nope! There is no charge for admission.
DO I NEED TO WEAR ANYTHING SPECIFIC?
Nope! It IS outdoors, so dress accordingly to the weather. It looks like it's going to be mid-60s on Friday about that time. If you have a CREW, MAM, or Highpoint shirt, that'd be GREAT to wear!!
FEEL FREE to reply and reach out to me with any questions/concerns/thoughts. I am HAPPY to help! We are SO EXCITED to begin this official partnership, and cannot wait to see our students ON THE MOVE in THEIR city - ready to be DIFFERENCE MAKERS.
