If you are looking for a friendly, Bible-believing church in the Kingsport area, we would be excited to see you visiting in our services. Please take a moment and sign our guestbook to let us know you visited us here on the web. If you have questions or suggestions for the webmaster, you may send a private note through the guestbook . Thank you so much for visiting our site. Come back frequently!
On Valentine's Day, February 14, we will have a special time of fellowship after the evening service. The men will be preparing and serving desserts for the ladies! Don't miss this special time of food and fun.
Rumor has it that there is going to be a little football game of some kind on Sunday, February 7. We also hear that one of the quarterbacks is from Tennessee!
At any rate, to allow our folks to enjoy the game we are moving our service time that evening and will begin at 5:30 p.m. There will be no choir practice. If the preacher doesn't preach too long, we can make it home in time for kick-off!
The Video of the Month page has been updated for February. In honor of Valentine's Day, we hope you will enjoy hearing about God's love as Carroll Roberson sings his version of "A Thing Called Love."
Two new sermons have been added to the Sermons 2016 page. On 1/10, Pastor Bob spoke to us about "15 Nails in the Church's Coffin" and about some things we need to do in our own life to help our church thrive in doing God's work.
On 1/17, guest speaker Dr. Matt Pinson, President of Welch College, gave us a fresh, new look at the story of "The Rich Young Ruler" and how it relates to us today. This would also be a good sermon to share with your unsaved friends.
We will be having our regular fifth Sunday night singing to benefit Free Will Baptist Family Ministries on Sunday, January 31, at 6:00 p.m. The group originally scheduled will be unable to be with us, so our own singers from Fellowship will be preparing special songs for us. Please come out and support Family Ministries.
With the cold and snowy weather, it's a great time to start thinking about the annual Spring Retreat at MainStay Suites in Pigeon Forge, TN. This year's retreat will be held from March 14-16. The speakers will be Donnie and Trudy Miles, who recently celebrated 25 years of serving at Peace Free Will Baptist Church in Florence, SC. Not only are they seasoned veterans in the ministry but they have so many talents, such as singing and acting, there are just too many talents to list. This couple will make you laugh until your sides split.
Special musical guest this year will be Jim McComas, who preached and sang for us at Fellowship in our revival services last March. He has been serving with FWB North American Ministries as Director of Church Revitalization since March, 2014. Jim was the baritone singer and songwriter of the Representatives Quartet for 25 years. His southern gospel style will be a blessing to all.
Those who attended previous retreats should have received a brochure in the mail. A few brochures are available in the church lobby, or see Pastor Bob. If you have never attended one of these retreats, you are missing a great time!
"Early birds" who pay in full by March 1 will save $10.00 per person. Double Occupancy price is $130.00 per person (or $120 per person for the early bird rate). Single, triple, or quad occupancy is also available; those rates are in the brochure. The price includes the conference registration fee, two nights lodging, a deluxe breakfast at the hotel, and all prizes, refreshments, and taxes. All money will be refunded for cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances if a 24-hour notice is given.
(Registration and room reservation must be made through the Tennessee FWB State office. Please do not call the hotel to reserve rooms.)

We will soon need to begin deleting some of the sermons from 2013 and 2014 to free up some file space. If you have any which are favorites which you would like us to keep, please send the web administrator a private message through our guest book. Thank you.

Our church recently voted to add a new part-time position and hire Jonathan Lewis as our Director of Family and Music Ministry. We are planning more outreach to young adults and families in the near future. Our church is excited to see how God will use Jonathan with a stronger music ministry and our expanded emphasis on families and youth.
On Sunday evening, August 31, the majority of the church members voted to make the morning service time changes permanent. Please join us for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. (classes for all ages) and for morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday evening services will continue to begin at 6:00 p.m., and Wednesday evenings we will continue to meet at 6:30 p.m.
