What's New at Baptist?

The Rev. Jimmy Terry Preaching Series: It's All About Jesus

Baptist Memorial Health Care has launched "The Rev. Jimmy Terry Preaching Series: It's All About Jesus" in memory of former Baptist board of trustees member Rev. Jimmy Terry, who passed away in June 2017.

This series features sermons from local pastors in the Dr. H. Edward Garrett Sr. Auditorium on the Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis campus on the third Thursday of every month at noon. The minister will deliver a 30-minute sermon, which will be broadcast to all Baptist Memorial hospitals. These events will be open to anyone—team members, physicians, patients and visitors— in Baptist hospitals.

October 19 Speaker—Pastor Charles Fowler, Germantown Baptist Church
