What We Do

We offer Sunday School classes, a Contemplative Worship Service at 9:30am, and Traditional Worship Service at 11:00am on Sundays.

We are very involved in our local community and with ministries abroad. We partner with local charities and missions. We are trying to bring Christ’s mercy, light, and love to all the places we can reach. We can best do this by striving to support and live in harmony with each other and with those we encounter in our lives.


We are located at 322 Vance Dr. in Bristol, Tennessee
