ReachOur vision: We are a joyful community striving to ... REACH out to those with no relationship to Christ ...
We engage in efforts to reach out to persons so they experience Jesus through the efforts and ministries of the church. Reaching out to persons takes place in a variety of ways.
We help people struggling with active addictions -- for example, to legal and illegal drugs, alcohol, gambling, eating disorders, sex, pornography, co-dependency, resentment, retail addiction -- through Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered program with foundations firmly established in Biblical truth. Persons who need help are invited to come on Thursday evenings for dinner at 6 p.m., a worship service at 7 p.m. and sharing group meetings at 8:15 p.m.
We host an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) group that meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the church at noon.
We seek to be a place for young people through our Kingdom Quest program for children and our Youth group. Both meet on Wednesdays.
We invite children in the community to join us for our annual Easter Resurrection Celebration on the church grounds. This event typically includes a devotion, games, face painting, crafts, blowups, snacks and an Easter egg hunt.
We host an annual Trunk 'n Treat event on Halloween where the community is invited to come and take part in hospitality and fun and go home with plenty of candy. Last year, we welcomed "a gazillion" kids and parents.
We hold an annual Vacation Bible School where we reach out to children in our community. This summer, we partnered with Kona-Ice out of Sevierville and went to the Boys & Girls Club and the City Park to share the love of Jesus with a free Kona-Ice, some school supplies, and a blessing for a wonderful school year.
We participate in Operation Christmas Child, an interdenominational effort to offer the Christmas message to children here in the United States and around the world.
We encourage all persons to invite others to come and join us in worship and fellowship at FUMC. Invitation is so important.
