Go.Do. Collection for July 2020

School Supplies for Montvale Elementary

Drop off at the Porte Cochere (covered drop off area) 

TUESDAYS from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm


Calling all mask sewers...we have heard a local elementary school is looking for kid-sized masks for their 450 kids, many who cannot afford their own. This school starts the week of July 27th. Can you help? 

Bring them to our Blessing of the Backpack event on Sunday, July 26th from 5:00 to 6:00 pm or contact Rev. Sarah Slack via communications@1stchurch.org or call her at 865-982-1273 so she can get them to the school.


Outreach ministries at 1st UMC are based on

this scripture from Acts which gives us a call to "Go.Do."

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; 

and you will be my witness in Jerusalem, 

and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.

                                                                                                              Acts 1:8

Do you feel the call to "Go Do?"

If so, let us know the areas where you are wanting to help by clicking here



Throughout the year, the people of 1st UMC support dozens of missions and ministries,

many of them through their volunteer work.  

Generally 30% of the church tithes and offerings are allocated toward  

the Mission & Compassion Outreach of the church.   

Below you will find organizations that the church is helping with financial support.
