Ministry Outreach
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.
Building Update
     The church office is now located temporarily in the church until the building is ready.  The pans have been completed and the committee is preparing to get bids from contractors soon. 
     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 even a meal at 5:30 so you don't have to cook followed by classes and activities from 6:00 to 7:00!  Please contact us if you have any questions, or just show up at 5:30 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.

Remember that if you want to post on the Marietta Church Facebook page, feel free to do so.  The post will have to be approved, but once that is done it will be posted.  If you are asking for prayers, try to avoid proper names.  If your post can't be approved the way it is, you will be contacted to make sure we have a way to post it.  If you want an anonymous post, send us a message with the information you want in it, and the church can make that post on your behalf.  Also, feel free to share any post on the church Facebook page.  
     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.
