In 2015, we've had lots of great special events. In February we had a Super Bowl Party, We also went to the Winter Jam Concert in February. In April we had a Church Talent Show. In May we had Youth Sunday. In June we had an End of School Lock-In in the Gym. In August we had a Back to School party at Dee & Debbie Pinckard's lake home. They have a huge Water Slide and they pulled kids behind their Ski Boat. We also had kids attend Summer Church Camps at Camp Chilhowee. On September 18-19, we will be taking our Youth on a Fall Camp Out. Our Youth are also involved in quarterly Service Projects in our Knoxville community (i.e. Volunteer Ministry Center, Lost Sheep Ministries, Hope Resource Center, Wears Valley Ranch, Teen Challenge).
