“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.




Former pastor, R. David Lancaster, has established a special memorial fund at Bethel University in the name of his late wife, Barbara (Barb).  The purpose of this fund is to enhance the ability of our Cumberland Presbyterian university to provide better training for ministry students who wish to specialize in children’s Christian education.  From the time she was in college and until the last few years, including her time here at First Cumberland, Barb devoted her incredible skills and devotion to teaching children how to become a Christian and to develop their faith through the study of the Bible and worship.  David plans to use this memorial fund to hold an annual series of lectures by known authorities in evangelical children’s Christian education and to add various media resources to Bethel University’s library collection.  At our meeting last Sunday night, our Session decided to contribute $500.00 to this fund on behalf of our entire congregation and because of the impact Barb had on you or your children/grandchildren, we thought that several of you might want to contribute as well.  If so, simply make your check out to Bethel University, and clearly mark it for the “Barbara H. Lancaster Ministry to Children Fund” on the memo line.  Then mail your check to Bethel University, 325 Cherry Avenue, McKenzie, Tennessee 38201.  All contributors will receive invitations to all the events sponsored by this fund, as well as be made aware of all acquisitions of materials that are collected.  On behalf of David, I want to thank you for any contribution you make to this memorial fund, and I want to encourage you to pray that to the glory of God this fund will make a difference in the lives of children throughout the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
