About Us

   A Hub for Serving the Poor

 

    Memphis needs a “hub” that is a refuge for the lost and the poor. Raleigh Community Church of Christ is becoming a new base of operations for urban ministry in the city of Memphis. The existing facilities on the Raleigh Community campus is rapidly becoming the “Center of Peace” envisioned for serving the poor from all parts of the city. For example, at the beginning of each school year, partnering with the Highland Church of Christ, we give 650 children from all areas of Memphis free school supplies. Volunteers from both churches worked together to serve needy kids.

    Through Raleigh Community Church, we serve the poor through annual ministries like the School Store, Turkey Store, and Christmas Store. In addition we serve children and families through free weekly worship and Bible study. The community sees our church as a vital ministry to the “least of these” in the city. Jim Harbin is the senior minister of the church and is viewed as a shepherd of the community rather than just the “preacher” for Raleigh Community. According to Jim, “I am serving in a role like Paul with concerns for all the churches and people of the city (2 Cor. 11:28).”
