World Communion Sunday

Creasia Phillips has a servant’s heart.

The junior psychology major at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro grew up in Gordon Memorial United Methodist Church, Nashville. Her godmother told her about Nashville Freedom School.

That was in 2014, Nashville Freedom School’s first year. Creasia was hooked. Nashville Freedom School Partnership, which received a United Methodist Ethnic In-Service Training grant, believes in every child’s God-given potential. At-risk children of color participate in a six-week reading and enrichment experience.

Garlinda Burton, who heads Nashville Freedom School, considers Creasia one of the ministry’s many success stories.

“Creasia was our first scholar to graduate, go to college and become a Servant Leader intern for Nashville Freedom Schools,” Burton says. “She is a lovely young woman—quiet but powerful.”

Asked what it means to be a Servant Leader, Creasia replies, “It means to lead kids in the right direction, interact with kids in different situations, develop good communication skills and be a good role model.”

By summer’s end, she says, “I realized how much the kids care about each other and care about me.”

When people support Ethnic In-Service Training on World Communion Sunday, they enrich the lives of children and those who nurture them.

“Gifts help educate the kids, feed them when often there isn’t enough food at home and give them opportunities to learn about themselves and others,” Creasia says.
