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!   


News:

The sermon from November 2, "Lessons from the Life of Jezebel," has now been added to the "Selected Sermons 2014" section of the website.  This sermon is on the playlist and also is on it's own page using our old sermon format. 

Our hosting company has made some upgrades, and the sermons we have in the old format no longer require a browser plugin to play.  What this means is that if you could not hear them before, you should be able to do so now.  They should now even play on mobile devices!  We are still testing this, so please send the webmaster a message via the "Guestbook" if you have any issues (pro or con).  If our testing is successful, we plan to convert the sermons on the playlist to the old format, with each sermon on a separate page.  The playlist format is still not compatible with mobile devices.
The local bluegrass gospel group Downpour will be with us on Sunday evening, November 30, for our regular fifth Sunday singing to benefit Free Will Baptist Family Ministries.  You can learn more about the group by visiting their Facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/Downpourbluegrass

You can hear some of their music on their YouTube channel, found here:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZCJw1DcOum43oMxQ3TCWpA
Sunday, November 23, is the day set aside by Free Will Baptists for our annual offering to Missions North America (previously called Home Missions).  We encourage anyone who can to include something extra for missions in your giving that day.  Envelopes will be available in the church lobby.  We are not taking a separate offering but are just giving our folks an opportunity to support the mission work.
Our Band of Brothers will be going to Bass Pro Shop in Bristol on Thursday evening, November 20.  Our men are meeting at the church to ride the bus, which will be leaving at 5:00 p.m.  They will be eating supper somewhere in Bristol and then going to spend some time at Bass Pro.  The store is entertaining even if you are not into the outdoor sports, so we encourage all of our men to come and have a great time of fellowship.
The sermon from 10/26/14, "The Promise of Revival," has now been added to the playlist.  This is the final sermon of the series of sermons from 1 Chronicles 7:14.
On Sunday, November 9, our morning service will be a special Veteran's Day service focused on honoring the veterans of World War II.  We are inviting all veterans to attend and especially would love to have all of the WWII veterans in the area to join us at 10:30 a.m.  Please see our special web page dedicated to this service for more information:  Veteran's Day 2014
In conjunction with our special Veterans Day service on Sunday, Nov. 9, honoring veterans of World War II, our Video of the Month for November is a tribute to the service of those great veterans.
Just announced!  The Williamsons southern gospel quartet from Oklahoma will be singing for us on Sunday evening, 11/2.  Everyone is invited to this special song service!  To learn about the Williamsons and their music, go to http://williamsonsmusic.com/
We will have a soup-and-sandwich fellowship meal for Pastor's Appreciation after the evening church service on Sunday, October 26.  A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board; please sign up and list what you plan to bring.
Ed Phillips has been gracious enough to invite the Band of Brothers back to his farm again for their fellowship this month.  This Friday evening, October 24, the men will be enjoying a cookout around the fire and under Ed's new covered pavilion.  The preacher is providing hot dogs and buns and will bring all of the plates, cups, plastic ware, etc.  The guys need to bring chili, chips, drinks, condiments, etc.  They will eat around 6:00 p.m., but come early if you like.
Sarah Adams has graciously consented to give flu shots here at our church.  Her flu shot clinic will be set up in the Activities Building on Wednesday evening, October 22, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  There will be a nominal fee, but many insurance plans cover the charge.
Our Ladies Fellowship/WAC has learned that there is a need for veterans who live at Mountain Home in Johnson City.  The ladies have chosen to collect socks and handkerchiefs to send to them.  There is a box located beside the food barrels in the back of the church.  The last day to bring your donations is November 5.  Thank you!
Our Ladies' Fellowship/WAC is collecting food items for the Second Harvest Food Bank again this year.  Please place non-perishable items in the barrels by the bulletin board between October 12 and November 21.  The ladies appreciate your help!
The sermon from September 7, 2014, entitled "It Ain't Over," has now been added to our website.  We are trying out a new format for the sermons for the next few weeks.  To access this and the remaining sermons for this year, look under the "Selected Sermons 2014" menu and find the page "Sermons:  Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec."  The sermons will all be on one page in a playlist format.  To listen, just click on the title of the one you want to hear, and it should start playing automatically within a few seconds.  If you have problems listening with this new format, please send a message to the web administrator via our "Guestbook."  Thank you.
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.
Don't forget to save those labels for Free Will Baptist Family Ministries.  Several labels can be redeemed by FWBFM, so please bring them to the church and place in the basket.  Thank you Marsha Mullins for collecting these labels and sending them in for us.
The ladies are collecting labels for Free Will Baptist Family Ministries.  UPC labels from many Campbell Brands products are worth points to help provide free items for education.  A list of eligible products was inserted in recent church bulletins.  You may place the labels in a basket in the foyer.  If you have questions or need a copy of the product list, please see Marsha Mullins.
