    We are currently offering two services. The first service is at 9:15am and our second service is at 10:30am. High risk populations should continue to utilize our online services. Remember, there is NO PRESSURE to attend, no one is more or less spiritual. Our online service is on a live feed that will be available here at 10:30am or later.


    This Sunday, Jason will be speaking on Hope Moves Us to Faithfulness ~ A Challenge To Grow from 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11.


    We will be accepting individually wrapped candy donations for our EPIC Trunk or Treat beginning Sunday, October 2. Look for the donation box at the KidMin Check In Center in the foyer.


    We invite you to participate in 24 Hours of Prayer. It is a day of prayer that will begin at 9:00am on Saturday, October 8 and run through 9:00am on Sunday, October 9. We are asking you to sign up for 10 minute slots to pray for the church. There will be 144 slots available to pray. It would be great if we had 144 different people to sign up and pray, but you can sign up for more than one slot. We also ask that you night owls and early birds sign up for those time slots that might not be as popular to everyone else. There will be a sign up sheet in the foyer and also online here. We will make sure that both sign ups are updated. Do you need some ideas for praying for the church? One part of prayer is our listening to God, so reading scripture during this time is appropriate. You can also get ideas from this article, 18 Things to Pray for your church.


    We want your trunk! We need decorated trunks for our EPIC Trunk or Treat on Sunday, October 30 from 5-7pm. Three prizes will be awarded to Epically Biblical themed trunks. Need some inspiration? Check out our Farragut Kids Ministry Facebook page for ideas. Any decorated trunk is welcome.


    Small groups have resumed. A list of small groups and the day and time they meet is available here. If you would like to connect with a group, please contact the office and we will help connect you to a group.


    Swing Fore A Cause benefiting Bethany Christian Services of Knoxville at TopGolf is Thursday, November 3 @ 6-9pm. Bethany Christian Services supports kids and families in our community. If interested, pick up a flyer at the Sign Up Center or talk to Dave Welty.

We encourage you join and to share with your family members. If you received an invitation (probably from Aaron Brunsman) we encourage to take advantage of this offer.
