Knoxville's chapter of the Quilts of Valor ministry meets weekly on Tuesdays in the dining room area of the church, throughout the day, to work on ongoing quilts supplied to wounded armed services members
Volunteers of all levels of experience are welcome. No sewing or quilting experience is required, just a desire to participate in this service project.

Economy Corner Resale Shop
Thursdays, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
We've been "green" since the late 1960's when our Economy Corner resale and thrift shop was started in the dining room of the church. As the customer base grew, the shop expanded to a larger room with its own entrance on the east side of the building.Volunteers work as the sales staff and profits go annually to support the ministry of the church.
The shop accepts donations and seasonal items on consignment.
