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. 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!
As we continue to get the sermons caught up on the website, we have now added "Don't Stop Dreaming" from June 5, and "Branding" from June 12, to the "Sermons 2016" page.
We are working hard to get sermons caught up and have now added the final two sermons from the month of May. You may now listen to "When the Water Gets Deep," from 5/22, and "Leave a Legacy, from 5/29, on our Sermons 2016 page.
We would like to invite the parents of our children to join us for a special time of Bible study, planning, and prayer on Sunday morning, June 26, in the activities building from 9:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. We will be taking the time to plan events, talk about issues that our children are facing, and have a special time of prayer for our home. See you there!
The Family Movie Night originally scheduled for this Thursday, 6/16, has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date. This will allow some "breathing room" in between all the other activities going on this week.
Father's Day is next Sunday, June 19. Bob and Brenda's son, Tim, and his family will be with us. Tim will be teaching a combined adult Sunday school class in the auditorium on the subject, "What Do Mormons Believe". He will also preach during the morning service. Tim Lewis is pastor of Summit Chapel FWB Church in Odgen, Utah.
We will have no evening services on Father's Day.
Our annual church picnic is this Saturday, June 18. We will once again be at the Eastman recreation area. We have shelters 40 and 41 reserved from 4:00 until 9:00 PM. This year we are trying something different and are getting food from Pratt's BBQ! We are asking each person to make a small donation to help with costs, but if you are unable to donate we undersand and still want you to come. We are also asking for a few people to volunteer to bring desserts. We need to know how many people are coming, so please sign up this week. Then come on out and have a great time!
We are thanking God for another wonderful VBS last week. The church was turned into a castle and the kids had lots of fun. Most importantly, five young people accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and became new knights of the King.
Many more pictures from this year's VBS are now on our Facebook page. You may view them here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1296367050392140.1073741830.116238591738331&type=1&l=05e0c441fb

Our Video of the Month page has now been updated for June. As we celebrate Father's Day this month, let's remember to praise our Heavenly Father. Please enjoy the song "Our Father" by Don Moen.
"Why Don't Christian Kids Turn Out Right (Part 2)" from May 15 - the conclusion of the sermon from Mother's Day - has now been added to the Sermons 2016 page.
Hark, ye knights of the Kingsport Realm! It is our great honor to announce the "Knights of the King" Vacation Bible School, from June 6-10, 2016, beginning at 6:00 p.m. each night.
You don't want to miss the castle, jousts, knights battling knights, entertainment, and food! Enjoy a slice of pizza while cheering on your knight, and then join in the competition yourself to see if you have what it takes to be a knight of the King!
