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!

Recently, I read an anonymous quote that I want to share with you: “Church attendance does not save you.  But life is found in God’s house.  It’s where encouragement is found; friendships are formed; lives are changed.”  Many of you reading this article fully agree with this quote, and as a result, are very faithful in your attendance here at First Cumberland.  Others of you agree on the surface with this quote, but you do not agree with it enough for you to be fully faithful in your attendance; oh, you attend on the high holy days of Easter and the Sunday before Christmas, and maybe for a special event, but by-and-large, you are absent here at First Cumberland.  Still others of you reject this quote and see no real value in church attendance here at First Cumberland, or anywhere else for that matter.  If either of these last two categories describes you, I want to encourage you to take time to ponder this quote; I mean let it soak in for several days.  While you are pondering ask God to open you heart and mind to the benefits of being actively and regularly involved in the life of First Cumberland.  I close with this thought: “You cannot fully love Jesus and neglect His Bride—the Church.”

Spring Fling/Picnic

Our Missions and Outreach 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 (given to the church back on Scout Sunday), the church will provide the meat (pulled pork and chopped chicken) and the drinks; you are asked to bring your favorite side-dishes and/or a dessert.  Since the Spring Fling/Picnic will take place right after our Worship Service, you are encouraged to wear casual clothes to church that day.  This is a great opportunity for each us to invite family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and classmates to join us.  Look for more details in future editions of The Cumberlander.




FISH  Food Pantry Campaign

Our Youth did a fantastic job of filling 133 bags last Saturday morning.  This team consisted of Josh Rech; Jimmy, Dawn, Chrissy, Justin, and Chris Curtis; James, Sydney, Emma, and Eli (who has been working in the pantry for 10 of his 11 years) O’Neal; Jon Spencer; Scott and Amanda Roberts; Tom Walker, Gracie Hayes (who also worked last week); and Betty Hammill.  On Tuesday, Jimmy Curtis picked up a load of free bread from the Fish Hospitality Pantry to refill our freezers.  Thank you one and all for all your hard work.  Church of the Savior will be bagging this Saturday, April 18th. There is a good possibility that we will have to bag on April 25th – I will let you know next week for sure.  May our church be blessed as we help to feed the hungry in our community.                                                                                    Betty Hammill
