Hello Church Family!
We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. We wanted to continue to keep you updated with measures that we as a church are taking during this unprecedented time.
- Vicky Monday and Marvin Stewart are continuing to work hard to keep our church clean and sanitary even while we are away. They are taking extra precautions and instituting additional measures to make sure our church is virus-free, and we wanted to share them here with you:
-- All surfaces that are regularly touched have been bleached, including tables, light switches, and metal chairs.
--The sanctuary has been thoroughly sanitized, including the wood on the pews.
-- All bathrooms continue to be sanitized weekly, and extra measures are being taken to ensure that they are completely disinfected.
-- All door knobs and telephones have been sanitized.
-- The rooms that are not being used currently are locked to ensure that they continue to stay clean.
-- Rooms are disinfected and sanitized after each use.
Vicky and Marvin have been working hard to help put us all at ease, and we appreciate the extra measures they are taking to make sure our church is virus-free!
-We know that there are many who are going without a paycheck as businesses shut down. As such, we wanted to provide resources for you or your friends and neighbors should anyone need extra assistance:
-- The Dandridge Ministerial Association runs a food pantry that is open on Mon, Wed, and Fri from 10-12. They are in a long red warehouse on Industrial Park Rd next to the old jail. All those who come for food must have a zip code of 37725.
-- Appalachian Outreach also runs a food pantry that covers all of Jefferson County. They are open Mon 10-4, Tue 10-4, and Thur 10-4, and are closed between 12 and 1 for a lunch break. They are currently putting together food bags and taking them out to your car when you pull up. They are located at 511 Municipal Dr in Jefferson City. Their number is 865-475-5611.

-We will be hosting an online Maundy Thursday service on April 9, 2020 at 7:00pm on our King Street Modern Worship Facebook page. Pastor Jason will be taking communion and invites you to do so with him in your homes during the service.
- We will continue to have services online through Facebook Live but are also working to put our videos on YouTube for easier access. More information on this will be forthcoming.
-As always, please reach out to us and let us know if you have any needs or prayer requests, and don't give up on reaching out to one another. Let us show the world that the church is more than a building!
