  • What is a Lutheran?

    Living here in East Tennessee, I hear this question a lot. Maybe you have as well..Another one is like it- -“What’s the difference between Lutherans and other Christians?” Or maybe you have wondered yourself, “What does it mean to be a Lutheran Christian?

    Lutheranism 101 is a class designed to answer these and other questions. Each Sunday morning, beginning October 7, a brief overview of one of the basic tenets of the Christian faith will be shared during the Sunday School hour. We will meet in Room 103 of the Christian Ministry Center. Through a mixture of video, Bible, Luther’s Small Catechism, and small group discussion, participants will gain a better understanding and appreciation for the gift of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as it relates to our life together. Check the weekly calendar and church bulletins for the topic of the day. Since each week stands alone, you can attend whenever you like.

    If you are new to the Lutheran Church, or just want a refresher in the faith, please join me and other like-minded pilgrims on this journey.

  • Walk Across Tennessee!

    The Health Initiative Team is partnering with UT Extension in Loudon Co. to Walk Across Tennessee. This begins March 1, 2019, and runs through April 30, 2019. The idea is to keep track of the miles and see whose team can get from E. TN to W. TN. This involves teams of 4 people. There are many activities that contribute to Walk Across Tennessee that would be able to be counted for miles. Activities such as aerobics, bicycling, bowling, dancing, gardening, golf (walking), swimming, treadmill, and of course, walking or running.
    We are putting up a sign-up sheet for interested persons. If you don’t have enough to make a 4 member team, we will try to put you on a team that needs more people. The mileage is charted once a week. Each team must have a name (creative) and a captain, whose job it will be to turn in the miles for that week. We will have someone who will keep track of all the teams and report to Loudon Co. We will also put up a map of TN so everyone can watch the progress of the teams.
    In conjunction with this, the Health Initiative Team feels it would be a great time for a congregational challenge to lose weight. You do not HAVE to be participating in Walk Across Tennessee for this challenge. It would be confidential, but the beginning weight would have to be recorded and then every week beginning March 1-April 30, 2019. We are planning on a gift to the person that comes closest to guessing the total weight lost and also a gift to anyone who meets the goal they set for themselves.
    We will have people fill out a small sheet with name, beginning weight and goal weight along with a guesstimate on total weight lost. We think this is a fun way to get in shape for spring and summer activities. We are STRESSING a healthy diet with more exercise or a new exercise to accomplish the goals. We are NOT condoning a strange or fad diet to lose weight as this is unhealthy.
