While services are online due to COVID-19, we are working on alternative means for members and friends to contribute. Currently the best way to give is to mail your offerings to 31 West First Street, Cookeville TN, 38501.

The Joy of Giving

Living is giving. We live life best as we give our strengths, gifts, and competencies . . .We are called to serve, not survive. Our giving makes a difference in our families, our congregation, our community, and our faith.
