Al Green's church is awesome. You can call ahead and find out if he's there (google "Al Green's Church" - I can't remember the real name of it.)
Usually the tourists sit in back. If I were you I'd come dressed for real church, though - it freaks me out to see shorts and tshirts in there. And bring money for the offering. It's also a long service - don't come hungry.
It's near Graceland, so you might could do that afterwards. Though, as a Memphian, I've never been.
Libertyland is indeed a pile of rubble, and you can't sneak in. I tried a week or so ago.
Go down to the Mud Island Greenway and walk on the river. Or, Tom Lee for that matter. It's free, and practically the best Memphis has to offer. While you're down there doing that go to the Metal Museum. GREAT view and great museum.
You know the bars if you've been on here any amount of time - Lamplighter, HiTone, Buccaneer, Murphy's.
Although it's touristy as hell, I'd at least walk down Beale and go to Schwab's. Schwab's is really, really fun.
The Civil Rights Museum is supposed to be awesome, but I've never gone.
The Zoo's nice if you like zoos.
