Our church supports the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, the Holston Home for Children, Heifer International through donations to purchase animals for needy countries, and local MEDIC blood drives. We provide meeting space for TOPS Weight Management, Monroe County Homeless Coalition, Chota Community Health, and other local agencies.
Jesus tells us in John 21:17 to "Feed My Sheep."
The Blessing Box, located in our Tellico Street parking lot, was installed by our Son Seekers Sunday School class, and stocked by our members with non-perishable food items and toiletries which are made available to members of our community who find themselves in need.
Please add items for the Blessing Box on your weekly shopping list, and drop them off on the way home.
