Our primary ministry is public worship. It is the center of our life as a church and as individual followers of Christ. When we worship together we are serving the Lord, but we benefit too: He is powerfully present with us; our souls are strengthened by the means of grace, especially the preaching of Scripture; and we are encouraged by the fellowship of the saints.
In prayer we speak with God, cast our cares on him, ask for his mercies, and help to bear each other’s burdens.
Our prayer meetings are pretty informal. We read a little Scripture, explain our prayer requests to each other, then take turns praying aloud for our fellow believers, churches, missionaries, families, neighbors, nation, and more.
We usually have two midweek prayer meetings per month. Please check the calendar for details.
The jail has suspended jail ministry due to Covid-19 until further notice.
Several of our members lead Bible studies at the Blount County Jail on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Sometimes we provide additional training and encouragement to individual inmates whom we've met through the jail ministry, and who have come to know Christ.
Instead of regular meetings or programs, from time to time volunteers will schedule group outings for our school-age kids. In the past these have included camping trips, talent shows, Christmas caroling, and visits to nursing homes.
At 9:00 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, Michael Morecraft leads a study on the book of Romans at the church building.
