We often establish a special mission project with a goal of $5,000. It usually takes us a year to satisfy our goal. The following are the projects we have completed:

  • Heifer Project International (www.heifer.org)
  • Samaritan's Purse (www.samaritanspurse.org)
  • Living Waters of the World (www.water.cc)
  • Family Promise (www.familypromiseknox.org)
  • Mission of Hope (MissionOfHope.org)
  • Water Angels (thewaterangels.com)
  • Wears Valley Ranch (www.wvr.org)

Beginning in mid-2013 we tried a new mission approach, a "year of service". From June through May 2014 our rather small congregation logged over 3000 hours of community service. Examples include volunteering at the Good Samaritan pantry, Habitat for Humanity Store, the Good Neighbors Shop and Family Promise of Knoxville, building with Habitat for Humanity, visiting nursing homes, doing yard work, delivering meals to shut-ins, working at the animal shelter, helping Toys for Tots, and on and on.

Then in mid-2014 we returned to our $5000 projects, this time to help "The Water Angels", a Christian outreach to the homeless and at-risk in Knoxville. Direct your browser to "thewaterangels.com" for more information.

In mid-2015 we turned to the Wears Valley Ranch (wvr.org), a Christian home and school for children in crisis situations. We have completed that project and are now considering what to do next.

The Iglesia Misericordia (Mercy Church), a Cumberland Presbyterian congregation, is not quite large enough to support themselves in a dedicated building. Our building is large enough to share; the Mercy Church helps us by sharing the cost of utilities and by helping in maintenance. Due to language difficulties our interactions are not as frequent as we might like, but we do the following together:

  • Christmas party
  • Fellowship events
  • Mission trips
  • Spanish as a second language
