Knoxville First Cumberland Presbyterian Church

“Loving God, Loving People”

We are an exciting church family with people of all ages and interests united by our common love for Jesus Christ and our desire to grow as God's children. Throughout the week we provide worship, educational, fellowship and ministry opportunities for children, youth and adults.

On these pages you'll find all kinds of information about our church and how you can get plugged in. Take your time to get to know us, and then let us know how we can partner with you in your journey of faith.

Together we'll get to know God better and discover the great things he has done for us in Jesus Christ. We'd love to have you join us!

While perusing Facebook last Sunday night, I ran across a post from a friend of mine from Millbrook, Alabama.  Part of her post said: “Don’t just come to church . . . BECOME the church!”  It gave me great joy, as your pastor, to watch this congregation BE the Church for one of our own families last Sunday morning.  This is not the first time this congregation has done something like this, nor will it be the last, and I am thankful this is true.  While again looking at Facebook last Monday morning, I saw a post by Rev. Kevin Wood, my predecessor here at First Cumberland, who is now serving in McKenzie, Tennessee.  Kevin wrote: “Some people find it easy to criticize the church for preaching platitudes on Sunday and ignoring real needs the rest of the week.”  Kevin went on to describe how the congregation he now serves reached out to meet the pressing needs of a family in their church following an auto accident.  Again, it gives me great joy to serve a congregation that does not ignore the real needs amongst us.  Thanks to your generosity, $528.00 was donated to a family in great need; groceries from the FISH Food Pantry were given to them as well.  Thanks for BEING the church!

Spring Fling/Picnic

Our Outreach and Missions Committee is sponsoring a church-wide Spring Fling/Picnic Sunday, May 3rd, following our Worship Service.  Thanks to a gift certificate from Archer’s BBQ, the church will provide the meat (pulled pork, chopped chicken, and hot dogs) and the drinks; you are asked to bring your favorite side-dishes and/or a dessert.  We will have food, fun, games, blowups, music, hay rides, face-painting, horseshoes, and a prize walk (think “cake walk” with various prizes instead of cakes).  Bring a lawn chair and be prepared to spend the afternoon in fellowship.  Since the Spring Fling/Picnic will take place right after our Worship Service, you are encouraged to wear casual clothes to church that day.  Classical Conversations (one of the home school groups that meet at our church) will be joining us for this event.



Cumberland Presbyterian Women’s Ministry

Upcoming Bible Study: We are going to begin a Bible Study on “Soul Feast”, by Marjorie Thompson, which is a book on spiritual disciplines.  We will be meeting on Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., May 16th, May 30th, June 13th, and June 27th at the church.  The book is available at Cedar Springs Christian bookstore or I am sure it can be ordered (ISBN 978-0-664-22947-4).  You will need a book for the first session, reading the first chapter before the first meeting.  We welcome all who want to come and participate.

Work Day: The women are planning a work day on Wednesday, May 13th, at 9:00 a.m.  The week before, Maxine Curtis and Betty Hammill will inventory the needs and supplies to determine our course of action.  Come if you can to help in this ministry.  We will probably have additional work days in the future, to be determined at a later date.
