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!
The sermons from the past two Sundays have now been added to the Sermons 2016 page. On Sunday, July 3, Pastor Bob spoke to us about "When the World Is Upside Down." Last Sunday, July 10, Rev. John Gibbs was visiting with us and spoke about the "Agitation" many of us feel about current events in our country and around the world.
As a result of the parents' meeting last week, we have decided to have three events for our children this month. The first two events are in conjunction with the Kingsport Fun Fest community celebration. On Monday, July 18, we are having a Picnic and Praise event at Bays Mountain Park from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This will be for all our children and their parents. Admission to the park is free during Fun Fest.
The following day, Tuesday, July 19, we will have Putt-Putt and Pray from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This will be in conjunction with the Fun Fest Putt Putt tournament. Children, our four chaperones, and any parents who wish to come are invited to this event. There is no cost, but we need to know how many are attending so please let Brother Jonathan know if you want to come.
Our big event is an overnight trip to Kentucky to visit the Creation Museum and the new Arc Encounter. We will leave on Thursday, July 21, at 9:00 a.m. and stop for lunch around noon. After lunch, we will head to Cincinnati, which is home to the Creation Museum. After the museum we will eat dinner and head to our hotel for a Bible lesson from Brother Jonathan. Friday morning we will head home and stop at the new Arc Encounter. Both of these attractions are amazing! Please sign up on the Facebook event page or let Brother Jonathan know if you are going.
We also need a few more chaperones for the trip. The number needed depends on the number of kids who sign up. Please let Brother Jonathan know if you would like to be a chaperone and go on this trip.
We are planning a trip to Beckley, WV, leaving at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 26, and returning that evening. We will visit the Amish Barn for shopping and lunch and then tour the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. We will be taking the church bus, so there is no cost for the transportation but everyone "pays their own way" for the places we visit. Please sign up on the sheet in the church lobby so we will know who is going.
You can learn more about the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine here: http://www.beckley.org/general-information-coal-mine/
To give us a spiritual "shot in the arm" going into summer, we have scheduled a special day of services on Sunday, July 10. Rev. John Gibbs will be with us both Sunday morning and Sunday evening to minister in song and to preach. Please be praying that the Lord will use him to speak to our hearts and to challenge us in our spiritual lives.
Our Video of the Month page has been updated for July. As we celebrate Independence Day this month, please enjoy this stirring patriotic song about our flag, entitled "She Stands."
We will be having an Independence Day celebration on Sunday evening, July 3, in the activities building. Join us at 6:00 p.m. to enjoy a movie, along with ice cream floats and popcorn! We will have a separate movie for the children to enjoy in the annex room. Invite a friend and come celebrate with us!
As our nation celebrates her 240th birthday there is great concern about the future. We have never in our history seen the political confusion and unrest that we will face in this year's election. We struggle with Islamic terrorism, stock market upheaval, spiritual apathy, and acceptance of unspeakable wickedness as normal and even admirable.
Sunday morning, July 3, the preacher will try to bring a Biblical perspective to all of the unrest and confusion. Pray that the Lord will give His people wisdom, clarity, and a clear vision of what we are to be doing until He comes and makes all things "right."
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.
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.
