Results of Annual Meeting

Thank you to all those who voted on our recent elder and deacon nominees and our proposed 2018 budget. Everything was overwhelmingly passed at last Sunday’s annual business meeting.

Christmas and New Year Schedule

Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, we will be having candlelight services during our 9:30am and 11am morning service times.

We will have our regular services on New Year’s Eve (also on Sunday) at 9:30am and 11am.

Please note: For our families with children in Kidsway, there will only be childcare available for kids 2 years and younger for the Christmas Eve services. There will, however, be regular programming available on New Year’s Eve.


So far, the boxes we packed at JCCC have been processed through Ecuador, Malawi, Ukraine, and “a hard-to-reach area.” Continue to pray for the recipients of these boxes, their families, and the ones transporting the boxes.

Pecans Are Here

We have XL pieces of this year’s crop of pecans available for purchase this week. They are $10 per pound bag.

Winter Weather Information

If Carson-Newman University cancels at any point on a Wednesday, our classes/ministries will not meet that Wednesday. Sundays: If we can make the call before the weekend, we will include the information on Friday’s daily email. However, there will be times we need to make a decision on a Saturday. If that is the case, then please check this page for information regarding Sunday services (usually after 4pm). If you ever have any questions regarding services, check the JC3 website or Facebook page. NOTE: Our cancellation policy only applies to weather. Illness related closings do not affect our service schedule.

“Fill the Bucket” Toy Drive

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, ask your children to go through their new or gently used toys, movies, games, etc. and donate them for children to enjoy at the Samaritan House. You may then bring those items to drop off in the bucket in the KidsWay department. The collection will take place November 19-December 17th. Blessing others with gifts leads the way to emphasize to our children the greatest gift the world has been given...Jesus!

All youth will be meeting in the Youth Loft on Christmas Eve during the first hour for a “Jingle & Mingle”. Refreshments will be provided and we will also be playing some Christmas games. See you at 9:30am!

Opportunities to Serve

KidsWay Looking for Volunteers

Our KidsWay department is looking for folks who would enjoy helping in ANY capacity (technology, security, teaching, etc.) If you have a heart to serve and would like more information on how you can volunteer, please contact Michelle Emmert (

Food Pantry Donations

We serve many non-perishable items to members of our community as well as church family each month from our pantry, especially during the colder months of the year. If you would like to make donations, you may bring items to room 203 (near the front office) or you may make a monetary donation by writing a check to JCCC and mark “food pantry” in the memo line.

Welcome Team for Wednesdays!

Due to the growth of our Wednesday nights, we are looking for a few friendly faces who might help us Welcome people and help them find their classes.

WHAT WILL I DO: Have your JC3 team lanyard on and be ready to greet from 6:10pm – 6:40pm. Know where the classes/ministries meet (we have a TV screen and a handout that will help you). Help people feel welcome! Sign up on your Connection Card or contact John at to become a volunteer.

Serve with Sunday Lunches

If you are willing to serve on a Sunday lunch clean-up team, your team will work only three times a year for about 20-30minutes each time. The job is washing dishes and taking out some trash. It’s only three times per year because we’ll have three teams of four people (we take some months off from lunches). If you think you can help, then we’d love to have you on one of our lunch teams! Please reply to this email or talk to Monique Hewling at church!

Help Wanted!

We are making plans to remodel our bathrooms located near the sanctuary and we need folks willing to strip wallpaper and repaint. If you can help with these jobs, please respond to this email and we will give you more details about the task.

  • Dean & Vickie Ballinger’s friend, Kim Fitch, has 8 treatments of radiation to go for her cancer treatment. The effects of this treatment are very painful. Please continue prayers and cards sent to her, her husband Scott, and their two daughters.
  • Suzi Phillips asks that we please remember her teacher, Allison Martin, as she is battling breast cancer. She also asks that we please pray for Rhonda and Doug Christi.
  • Carrie Paul requests that we please continue to pray for the Smith family as they have now lost her cousin Stephen as well. He passed away on November 28th.
  • Please continue to pray for Mary Gatlin and her family after the loss of her father, Gene Barnett.
  • As some of you may know, Robert Taylor was involved in an accident at work recently and was airlifted to UT Medical Center with a fracture and break in his neck and a very bad concussion. We wanted to update folks to let them know that he is now home and doing much better. His wife, KatiAnne, says the biggest thing he needs now is rest and she thanks everyone for the calls, texts, messages, visits and most importantly the prayers. She goes on to say it will be a long road to recovery but he is in great spirits and they both appreciate your continued prayers.
