When the song of the angels is stilled, 
When the star in the sky is gone, 
When the kings and the princes are home, 
When the shepherds are back with their flock, 
The work of Christmas begins: 
(from the poem The Work of Christmas by Howard Thurman)

A time for giving

Every year we take up a special Christmas offering during the 7:00 pm presentation of the Chancel Choir Cantata (on December 15th this year) and during the Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship Services (on December 24th). 

This year, the offering will benefit Good Neighbors of Blount County, an organization with a mission to help people out of a temporary crisis. Good Neighbors does this by helping with rent and utility assistance, offering help to find long term solutions to problems and helping people become more self sufficient.


If you wish to give to the Christmas Offering online you can do so here

You can also write “Christmas Offering” in the memo line of your check and place it in the offering plate or bring it by the church office.
