Hi, Friends of Muley! We're proud to announce that, beginning tomorrow (Feb. 6, 2011) Muley will begin hosting the Kids' Sermons on the First Sunday of each month at First Congregational Church--which we locals call "First Congo"--located in the historic Cooper/Young district at 1000 South Cooper, Memphis TN 38104 (901)-278-6786. Find out more about the church by clicking on the image below.

Muley has a history of church involvement, from all the way back in 1988-1991 with First Assembly of God Church in Munford, TN, he was active with his buddy, Buford the Dog, in the Childrens' Church program. Actually, Buford more than Muley. But, Muley does enjoy visiting with his peers--nothing like watching a 6-year-old mule talk to his age-group about something he enjoys.

This Sunday's sermon is going to focus a little on the Super Bowl, and how that concept fits into our own lives (as kids OR grown-ups).

A little behind-the-scenes: Originally, there was a bit of a joke that Muley was going to tell; but, we cut it. It didn't seem to be the kind of thing to actually 'fit' with what we want to do at church. So it doesn't go to waste, here it is now:

Another note about First Congo: They love the arts and creativity, have programs dedicated to a greener earth and lifestyle, and also are very community oriented. On my Facebook page I posted a few notes from some Sundays' worth of information and should begin sharing that again. First Congo partners with the Memphis Food Bank (I'm pretty sure that's correct) and over a year ago began with about 60 families, today reaching over 200 families who might otherwise not have food. (If I find that my information is not correct I'll fix it; or if you read this and realize it's not right, please let me know.) Giving back to the community in such a way is VERY important. Speaking of importance, the main thing the church teaches about Christianity is LOVE--something I feel is very important to teach, and they welcome everyone. It's nearly a non-denominational church and I like that. Opens one's mind and heart to a plethora of topical options for serving the Lord.

Finally, if you want to visit Memphis but don't know where to stay, First Congo hosts a Hostel, which you can find out more information by clicking here.
