3rd of July Celebration!

Dear Faith Promise Family,

Thank you so much for honoring me and Michele this past weekend for our 15 year anniversary at FPC.  It really is a joy to be your Pastor and to minster alongside each of you as we follow God’s vision for our church together. I love you all!

It is time for our annual Independence Day celebration from 5 – 10 pm on Sunday, July 3, at the Hardin Valley Campus of Pellissippi State Community College, and I could not be more excited!  Last year we had over 10,000 in attendance, with many saved and baptized that evening.  This year I ask you to join me in praying for 11,000 in attendance, 200 professions of faith and 100 people following the Lord in believer’s baptism on the spot.  It is going to be an amazing evening, and I can’t wait to see all that God will do!  If you have not yet signed up to volunteer, it is not too late. Help is still needed in several time slots; please click here to register to serve.  By doing so you can be a part of helping to change someone’s life forever!

For those of you who attend our Pellissippi Campus, we will not be having our regularly scheduled services on July 2-3.  Since we will not be collecting a physical offering this coming weekend at that campus, I would like to encourage you to click here to go online to give your tithes and offerings.  God is really moving and blessing us and we need your continued prayers and monetary support for all of our ongoing ministries. Thank you in advance for being faithful in giving to His Kingdom through FPC during the summer months.

Beginning July 9-10, we will have an exciting new 4-week sermon series called, Updraft.  Isaiah 40:31 tells us that, “Those who wait upon the Lord will soar like eagles.”  Join us each weekend during the month of July as we discover how God has called us all to soar beyond fear and ascend to new and greater heights of faith.  If you are traveling, remember you can still worship with us online on Sundays at 9:00, 10:20, and 11:45 am, and 9:00 pm.

Also, please remember that our church offices will be closed on July 4-5.  Regular office hours will resume on Wednesday, July 6, at 8:00 am.

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!


Pastor Chris
