New to Methodism?
14th Sunday After Pentecost
Aug. 21, 2016
It’s awkward when an unexpected dinner guest arrives. You can either graciously set another place at the table and welcome the person, or turn them away. But what about when those who have been invited, and are expected to come, instead begin to make excuses as to why they can’t attend? What options does the host have, especially since the banquet has already been prepared?
Our mission is to be an open gathering place to nurture Christians in training who, equipped by the Holy Spirit, go into the world and share the light of Jesus Christ.
We are a United Methodist Community of Worship, serving in the Maryville District of the Holston Conference.
