CHRIST OUR SAVIOR volunteers are willing to help those needing temporary assistance.Helpers honor a wide variety of requests like travel or small home repairs. If you are someone, due to special circumstances, needs temporary assistance, that's where Heavenly Helpers come in.If you have any questions about Heavenly Helpers contact CHRIST OUR SAVIOR LUTHERAN CHURCH 865-458-9407.
Can you provide a meal to someone in our COS family who needs our help due to illness or other short-term situations? If so, contact the church office to add your name to the list of those willing to help. You’ll generally be asked to do this only once or twice a year. And if you need a meal prepared for you, you can also contact the church office.
