We are resuming in-person worship services on June 14th. (We’ll still have our online service available every week as well.) But we’re going to need your help as we follow the recommendations of medical professionals, government officials, and the CDC.
Please REGISTER yourself and anyone else coming with you for our 9am or 11am service. Due to space we have to limit the number of people in the sanctuary in order to maintain social distancing. If we reach our max you’ll receive an email that you’ll be on a waitlist. Your registration is super important! Even if the particular service you register for is full, we’ll be able to use this information to add new service times. Read the full update here.

Scripture & Sermon Notes
Practicing the Way
Rule of Life Workbook
Psalm 61:1-8 (NIV)
1 Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
5 For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.
Colossians 2:6-7 (NLT)
6 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Isaiah 117 House
We are proud to partner with the Isaiah 117 House by becoming their “socks and shoes church,” which means we’ll work to keep them fully stocked with shoes to help provide for those in their care. They will need shoes of all sizes – infant through adult.
You can drop off donations Sundays during our 9am or 11am services, or on Mondays between 10am—2pm.
The Isaiah 117 House is hosting the 6th annual Glow Trot 5K to benefit their organization and work in Blount County. We would love for you to join us in supporting their efforts. There are three ways to help support in this event:
- You can participate in the in-person 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk.
- You can participate in the in-person 5K.
- You can run a virtual 5K.

Please maintain social distance with others in the building at all times. We highly encourage some of our favorite “no touch” greetings: friendly waves, air fives, air hugs, or the American Sign Language sign for “I love you.”
- Masks are not required, but are STRONGLY encouraged. If you do not have a mask, we will have masks available on your way into the building.
- There will be no nursery, children’s programming, or preteen services. There will also not be any coffee served.
We are SO EXCITED to see you all again, but safety is our first priority so we’ll be cleaning & sanitizing the building before and after each service.
*Don’t worry, if you are not ready to meet in person, aren’t feeling well, or are in an at-risk people group we’ll still be broadcasting our online services every Sunday Morning at 10am.*
