  Join us on November 17th for our Advent Fellowship Supper.  Following the potluck meal (Bring a favorite dish to share) the worship committee will lead us in preparing for Advent and Christmas.  This is an excellent way to begin the Holy season.
 
  If you have a family you'd like to include for a Thanksgiving or Christmas food basket, please provide that information to by calling the church (865-693-0772) or via our Contact Page.
 
Canned Goods
  As fall approaches we want to remind you that we are collecting canned goods for the Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets.  You may bring your nonperishable items and leave them in the Narthex or the Fellowship Hall.  We are also accepting monetary donations for the food baskets.  Thank you.
 
 
 
Society of St. Andrew - Gleaning America's Fields, Feeding America's Hungry 
  The Society of St. Andrew is seeking volunteers to glean produce at the Hardin Valley Farmers Market on Wednesday evenings and distribute it to local food pantries.  This is not hard - all it takes is a heart for missions.
  Since 1979, SoSA has used two problems to solve each other: produce that is about to be wasted and hungry people.  SoSA volunteers glean produce (for example from farmers markets) and deliver it to food pantries that distribute it to hungry people.
  To volunteer or learn more, please contact Chuck Parmele at 865-424-4463 or parmelecc@aol.com.
 
   
Church Van
  Recently, the session authorized the purchase of a van for the church.  We are pleased to be able to share with you that we now have a 15 passenger 2018 Ford van.  We have begun using it to transport children for our F.R.O.G. program and are planning for its use in a variety of ways well into the future.
 
 
 
The Missions and Christian Service committee has been approved by the session to adopt Miracle Lake and The House That Mercy Built (Christian based substance abuse rehabilitation ministries for men and women) as outreach ministries.  These two ministries instill Christian values as they help men and women recovering from substance abuse.  Many of those who participate in these programs arrive with little more than the clothes they wear yet with a desire to restore order in their lives.

There are many ways that we (you) can help the church support these ministries.
  • Pray for these ministries.  Each 5th Sunday, we will have a special time of prayer for each of these ministries.
  • Participate in a special offering we will receive for these ministries each 5th Sunday.
  • Participate in the collection of clothing and hygiene items for men and women.
  • When we have representatives of these ministries at the church show your support by attending to hear about lives God is touching.
Though we may ask why support these or other ministries like this, our own church family has been touched by these ministries.  Each of us either knows someone who knows a family affected by substance abuse.  These ministries offer us a means to go beyond our own individual capabilities for helping.  Now God has given us this opportunity.  Please help us in supporting these ministries.  For more information please contact the church office.
 
 
     Please join us for our Sunday evening activities!  There is something for all ages with activities and studies for children, middle school, high school, and adult.  There is a short social time at 5:45 with a snack to share followed by classes and activities from 6:00 to 7:00!  Please contact us if you have any questions, or just show up at 5:45 on Sunday evenings!  We look forward to seeing you there!
 
If you have questions or would like more information, please contact us through our Contact Page, by phone (865-693-0080), or feel free to just show up!
 
Tuesday Evening Bible Study
     The Tuesday Evening Bible Study is for all ages. Those interested should meet in the fellowship hall at 7:00 pm.
 
Tuesday Morning Bible Study
     The Tuesday Morning Bible study meets at 10:00 am.
 
Karm Donations
     Your donations to Karm can now help others in added ways.  If you bring the things you want to donate to Karm to the church office (865-693-0080), the church will receive credit points.  These points result in gift cards to Karm stores that the church can then provide to those in need.  This is another way we can help others in need.

     The Buildings & Ground committee meets once a quarter: January, April, July, and October.  Any requests that are deemed non-emergencies will be addressed at the quarterly meeting.  Emergencies are defined as HVAC issues, water leaks, and security system problems.  Our church does not have a maintenance man on staff.  If there is an emergency, please contact the church office.  If there is an item that needs to be added to our next meetings' agenda, please contact any member of the Building & Grounds committee or the church office.
