Edward Cox House—Our Archives Committee are needing pictures of the Cox House, structure inside and outside, as well as the grounds.  Particularly  interested in pictures, drawings, portraits, etc. that go back in time as far as possible. i.e., Christmas at the Cox House.  If you have anything or know someone who might have something that might be copied, please see Betsy Carrier.

TODAY IS THE FIFTH SUNDAY!  The mission of Holston United Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville is to provide hope and healing to children and families struggling with life’s challenges.  You can help give children and youth a better life, a good education, and a chance to develop into Christian men and women.  Your interest determines their future.  Please be generous in your giving.

Several years ago, donations were made to a designated fund for the children’s bell choir program (current balance of $194.62) and to a designated fund for the  children’s rotation Sunday School ministry (current balance of $102.53). We have not done these particular ministries since at least 2008 and perhaps before; and do not anticipate doing them again. We would like to move these funds to the  Designated Children’s  Ministries fund to be available to more generally support our  ministries with children. If you donated any amount to either the children’s bell choir program or the rotation Sunday School, please contact Pastor Dan to  discuss this matter .
