We are conveniently located in the Bloomingdale area just one block from John B. Dennis Highway. 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 October 30, we are going to have a special day emphasizing FWB International Missions. Jerry and Barbara Gibbs, former missionaries to France, will be with us for the entire day. Jerry Gibbs is currently serving on the Tennessee State International Missions Board. He will be teaching a joint Sunday school class and will be preaching for us in both the morning and evening services. Brother Jerry will challenge our hearts. Our church has supported this good couple for many years and it will be great to reconnect with them.
On Sunday morning, October 16, we are going to be greatly blessed to have Rev. Jim Marcum, the president of Southeastern Free Will Baptist College, preaching for us. He is bring the men's quartet from the college to provide special music for us. This will be a service you won't want to miss!
Three new sermons have been added to the Sermons 2016 page. We apologize for giving you so many at one time. Two of these were ready to be added Friday night, but the server went down and was not restored by our hosting site until today.
The sermon from 9/4 is entitled, "Mary Hath Chosen." The sermon from our special service on 9/11 is entitled, "The Lessons of 9-11." Finally, we also have added the sermon from our homecoming service on 9/18; Rev. Josh McKinney preached on "Look Back or Look Forward."
Acts 20:20-21 says, "And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house, testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ."
Are we holding the Gospel back from our friends, neighbours, co-workers or family? During the month of September we are going to be challenging our people to share their faith. On September 25th we are going to have 20/20 Sunday and are challenging our Sunday school classes to have 20 people in each class. This is a big challenge for some of our smaller classes. Each class can set their own goal, but try not to limit what God can do.
Our other goal is to have 20 Children in the youth service that day. Brother Jonathan says, "I would say let's go for 20 in the nursery but the workers would shoot me.
Let's get out into our community and hold nothing back!
The sermon from August 21, entitled "Eating Out with Jesus," has been added to our Sermons 2016 page.
We have also added the sermon from our Communion Service on August 28, "In Remembrance of Me." This is an especially good sermon to share with your unsaved friends.
Our Video of the Month page has been updated for September. This year is the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Please take a minute and remember by watching this short video of our National Anthem with scenes from that terrible day. Never forget.
September 18 is the date for this year's homecoming service. A special day is planned, with the service beginning at 10:00 a.m. (There will be no Sunday school that morning.) The Foundations, who provided such great special music for us last year, are returning to sing for us again! You can read more about them and hear a sample of their music on their website: http://foundationsministries.com/
We also have a guest speaker this year. Preaching for us will be none other than Rev. Josh McKinney! Josh grew up in our church and is now the pastor of Midfield Free Will Baptist Church here in Kingsport. We are very proud of Josh and are excited to have him back with us for homecoming!
After the service, we will be having a covered dish lunch in our activities building. Please bring a covered dish and join us for the services and for lunch! (We will have no afternoon or evening services.)
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.
Update 4/30/16: We have deleted several of the 2013 sermons and plan to work on 2014 soon.
Update 7/6/16: This project has been placed on hold until we are ready to go live with the new website. Our hosting company is changing to a new platform, and we hope our new site will be more accessible to everyone, especially mobile users. After the new site is up, we will start looking at the 2014 sermons.

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.
