A Redneck Prom!

It’s Prom Season in high schools all over the US! This means girls are caught up in the search for the perfect dress, while guys are hitting up the bank (mom/dad) for a loan to pay for the increasingly expensive event.

Well, at Faith Promise we do things a bit differently.  🙂

Next Wednesday, during the Knox County spring break week, fpStudents will be hosting a Redneck Prom at the Pellissippi campus! That’s right, break out the camo, coveralls and Carhartt; we’re putting a new twist on an old tradition!

Our Redneck Prom will be complete with a light “country” dinner of corn dogs, Slim Jims and s’mores, as well as redneck games like a seed spitting contest, sack races, donut eating contests and, of course, line dancing! Plus, this event is completely FREE for students! It’s going to be an awesome night, and a great opportunity to invite students who don’t regularly attend church.

Now, if you are reading this and you are not in high school, I know what you’re thinking…”Michael! How can I be a part of this amazing event??” Well, I have great news for you! As with any prom, we have two special ways you can join in the fun:

  1. Decorations. We’ll be turning the Pellissippi campus into a haven for hillbillies, so if you have anything from Christmas lights to hay bales to pink flamingos, we’d love for you to lend us what you’ve got to make the experience memorable!


  1. Chaperones. Every prom needs additional adult supervision, and perhaps you’ve been waiting for a time just like this to get your feet wet serving at FP. Well, here’s your chance! I promise you’ve never seen ministry done like this, and I’d love for you to consider serving with fpStudents and seeing just what God is up to with our students!

If you are able to help in either of these ways, please email us at [email protected] so we can get you plugged in! The Redneck Prom will take place Wednesday, March 27 from 6:30pm-9:30pm at the Faith Promise Church Pellissippi campus.
