Each Wednesday night we go out on the streets of Memphis for CPR (Compassion Party on the Road).  On March 1, people from all over the world will be gathering to receive ashes on their forehead a way to remember our humanity and our mortality as well repent of our sins.  We will be taking ashes along with meals to our neighbors on the streets.  

Join us at 5:45 in the back of the Walgreen's parking lot, 4625 Summer Ave. Memphis, TN 38122 for a brief service for the volunteers before breaking up into three different teams to go out on the streets of Memphis.
PerksWhat distinguishes Jacob’s Well is the relationships that are developing between those who are affluent and those disenfranchised. We seek to begin by coming to serve a meal and end by sharing a meal and sharing life. We have discovered that our service is reciprocal as we find help for our souls in the process.
