Our Missions

HISTORY

Missions has been a cornerstone of Community Church since our founding. We are incredibly blessed to live in a resource rich community while surrounded by great need. We are proud more than 10% of our yearly budget goes to missions work and much of it stays local! Below you'll find a listing of all our current ministry partners.

It seeks to end the pain of child abuse by working closely with the Ninth Judicial District of Tennessee offering therapy, forensic interviews and medical examinations, and community education.

Scholarship Program

Our church has a history of supporting our local communities in many ways. The Scholarship Program began in 1992 and 123 students have received these awards totaling a commitment of over a half a million dollars. Currently we give scholarships to graduating seniors from each our local high schools. Loudon, Lenoir City, Sequoyah and Greenback. Students are selected by members on our Ministry Partnership Team through an application and interview process held every spring. Each student receives $1,750/yr - $7,000 total. These funds are sent directly to their college. 

Along with the scholarship budget of the church, several church families have established memorials and/or trusts to support and aid some of these students. The church crafter’s group has also continued to support a student every year. If you would like more information about how to establish a memorial, please ask the church office.
