As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, I want to make sure I keep you as informed as possible concerning the ongoing ministries of our church. It seems the information we receive from local, state and national leaders changes from hour to hour. I encourage you to continue to follow all suggestions given by the government so that we can protect the most vulnerable among us. Again, remember you may be completely healthy and if you were to contract this virus, it would have little to no effect on you. However, you may unintentionally expose somebody else and their reaction may be quite different than yours. We must do all that we can to protect especially our senior adult population. Thank you for your continued support and your prayers. I assure you that I and all the members of our church staff are doing everything we can to keep things as “normal” as possible.
Today (3/23/20), the Knox County Health Department issued a “SAFER AT HOME” directive effective at midnight on Monday. In light of this development, the church offices will be closed for the remainder of the week. We will all work remotely and continue to keep you updated as warranted.
I am so grateful for our deacons and the way they are ministering to our members. Should you have a need, please call your deacon or call the church office. Even though the office is closed, we are able to retrieve any message you may leave and someone will contact you as quickly as possible.
As of now, the church offices and the FLC will remain closed though April 6 at which time we will evaluate the situation and provide further guidance. We will continue to post videos on our Facebook page or you can access them through Youtube — www.youtube.com/valleygrovebaptistchurch
On Wednesday, March 25 at 1:00 PM, I (Pastor Keith) will broadcast LIVE a time of prayer for our church and our nation. Share your particular prayer requests by emailing them to
email@example.com. Pastor Eddie will provide devotional videos that will be available on Monday and Friday. Our Sunday morning preaching service will be broadcast LIVE at 10:30 AM.
Thank you for your faithfulness in giving during this time. You may mail your tithes and offerings directly to the church (9000 Sevierville Pike, Knoxville, TN 37920) OR by using the GIVE option on our website at www.valleygrove.org. Click here to GIVE Online
Continue to pray for me and for our staff. Pray for one another. Remember Valley Grove is NOT a church building but it is an army of believers whose mission is to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world — beginning right here in South Knoxville/Seymour.
God bless you
