Mrs. Lynn Parish

The vision of the Community  Service Department is to engage the Mechanicsville, Lonsdale, East Knoxville community of Knoxville.

Proverbs 19:17


Dr. Berlande Gibson

Music Director

God created us to be instruments with the ability to sing and make music. Music is an important part of worship and praise to God.  Psalm 95:1 "Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation." 


Mrs. Areka Edwards-Hinton

Treasurer/Media Department Admin

God wants the whole person.  Stewardship goes beyond returning a faithful tithe and offering.  We need to be mindful of how we manage our time, talents and gifts endowed to us by our Loving Creator.  Stewardship should be a way of life!  "Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need." Malachi 3:10
