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.

The series will feature a sermon from a local pastor 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 in Baptist hospitals—team members, physicians, patients and visitors.

September 21 Speaker—Rev. Keith Norman, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church—Broad and Vice President of Government Relations, Baptist Memorial Health Care
