MDC SUMMER EXPERIENCE:
Our first annual MDC Summer Experience, a 2-week summer camp for children ages 1st through 5th grade, was a huge success. The children “traveled” around the world to 8 different countries during the morning hours. The afternoons were spent attending cooking classes, art classes and field trips. The children learned so much about God’s plan and purpose for their lives as they explored the world around them! The MDC Summer experience will be an annual camp at the Memphis Dream Center.
The Memphis Dream Center sent multiple disaster relief teams to Texas and Florida during the recent hurricanes. Our teams served alongside local churches and families delivering food and resources and cleaning our homes affected by the storms. Large truckloads of supplies were also delivered to aid in resourcing hurricane victims.
YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
We recently opened an additional space at our Youth Leadership Program. We are so grateful to Life Women’s Foundation and 7 local Lowe’s stores and mangers for their partnership in this project. Through the donation of funding, materials, and labor, the Memphis Dream Center added a large meeting space, 8 reading rooms, and an art room and have allowed the program to expand to include a new 2nd grade class and more than double enrollment for the 2017/2018 school year.
