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!

Text Box: For the glory of God, Knoxville First Cumberland Presbyterian Church exists to worship Christ, evangelize the lost, love one another and our neighbor, and learn more about our God.



I hope you are as excited about Homecoming 2015 as I am.  I can hardly wait for us to gather for the glory of God and worship the risen Christ together.  If you have not yet made plans to attend, please make your plans now, and if you have other plans on this day, please change them if at all possible because you will most probably regret not being here for Homecoming 2015.  It is not too late to invite someone to attend with you.  This someone does not have to be a former church member, though you want to be sure to invite every former or inactive member you know; invite your family members, your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers or classmates as the case may be—invite someone and come and experience one of the best Sundays in the history of this congregation.  No, that is not ministerial hyperbole; it is what can happen if we all show up and bring someone with us.

Homecoming 2015

Homecoming 2015 is this coming Sunday, October 4th.  On this day, a large water color painting of the church will be displayed for the first time.  Margaret Migas was commissioned to create this painting.  In the near future, prints of this one-of-a-kind can be purchased.  Since October 4th is also World-Wide Communion Sunday, we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper as part of our Homecoming 2015 Worship Service.  We will also have “dinner on the ground” (a.k.a., “pot luck dinner in the Gym”), special music, historical displays, and a whole lot more.  The day will begin at 9:30 a.m., with a time of fellowship and remembrance over coffee, juice, and homemade pastries.  This time can also be used to look at the historical displays.  There will be no Sunday School on this day.  Our Worship Service will begin at 10:30 a.m. (note the time change).  Since we are expecting many guests for Homecoming 2015, each of us needs to bring extra food for the “pot luck dinner”.  In addition to special music during the Worship Service, there will be special music in the Gym following the meal.  Homecoming 2015 promises to be a special day in the life of First Cumberland that you will not want to miss.
