As disciples of Jesus Christ and empowered by God’s Spirit, we have true freedom to love and serve God and other people. Our Ministry & Missions Team leads our efforts to engage in several local, regional and international mission efforts. In addition to the ones mentioned below, we also participate through our connectional giving in the mission efforts of our Three Rivers District, our Holston Conference, and our United Methodist denomination.
Family Promise. We support the Family Promise (IHN), a ministry which helps homeless families in the greater Johnson City area. IHN is an ecumenical ministry using area churches to house these families for one week at a time as they work to find new jobs and homes. As a support church, we are responsible for certain days, cooking dinner, providing people to serve the meal and offer hospitality to spend the night at the church with the families.
Rockhold Food Pantry. Throughout the year, we collect food and money to support the food pantry maintained at Rockhold UMC.
Czech Mission Team. In cooperation with our Three Rivers District churches, we have sent several church members on mission teams to the Czech Republic over the past several years.
Holston Home for Children. Every fifth Sunday, we collect a special love offering to support the ministries to orphans of the Holston Home for Children.
Robinson Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church. Once a month on Communion Sundays, we collect a special love offering to support this sister congregation in another denomination that shares our Wesleyan heritage.
Change for Children. During the season of Lent, we collect a special offering to support the ministries of Change for Children, administered by the Holston Conference of The UMC.
