On a beautiful Saturday morning, October 25, First United Methodist Church invited the downtown Memphis community to a free barbecue lunch in their “outdoor sanctuary” at Poplar Avenue and Second Street.Leading the congregation into this friendly endeavor was First Church member, Jimmy Lamb, after meeting with Senior Pastor Rev. Andy Rambo. Lamb said, “Well, I had the cooker and we saw the opportunity and the need of those who are hungry downtown. I’ve fed big crowds before as fund raisers and at work. It’s no big deal.”
