Church Wide

BILL OGLESBY MEMORIAL SOCK DRIVE: Bill loved his community and found many ways to give back throughout his life. He also loved his wild socks. Therefore, in his memory and what would have been his 70th birthday in June, his family has organized a sock drive. While white and black socks are always helpful, some fun socks may bring joy and smiles to their recipients! We will collect men’s, women’s, and children’s socks for the Clothes Closet. Donations can be put in the barrels in the Narthex or by the back door. You can also drop them off in the church office. The collection will continue throughout the month of June.

WORSHIP FINE ARTS CAMP: June 25th through June 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day we are offering a Fine Arts Camp where kids can UNPLUG from technology, pressure, and stress. Children will DIVE INTO FINE ARTS including dance, painting, acting, singing, playing instruments, and creativity. They will GROW IN FAITH through actively exploring Scripture through drama, song, dance, and art. They will GAIN SELF CONFIDENCE by taking risks, trying new things, plus discovering talents and passions. Please consider joining us for this exciting week. Stop by the church office for a form to register. There will be a $25 fee for this camp. For more information, contact Kimberly at (931) 484-3537 or

LEE FAMILY WELCOME: There will be a ice cream social at the church campground on July 7th at 6:00 p.m. to welcome the Lee family to Crossville FUMC. We will also have an old fashioned “pounding” at this time to help stock their pantry. If you are interested in helping organize this event, please contact Chris Smith.

YOU SHOP. YOUR CHARITY GETS MONEY. FOR FREE!: You can help Crossville FUMC with free donations whenever you shop online with Right now, iGive is giving out bonus donations! New members who join by 6/15 can get an extra $10 donation for Crossville FUMC if they make their first purchase by 6/25. The stores make this possible because they want you to like them and shop at them over and over again. There’s 2100 socially-responsible stores helping to make donations happen (such as Amazon, Lowes, Old Navy, Target etc.) If you shop online like I do, this is a great way to support our church….automatically, when you shop and at no cost to you! I hope you’ll give it a try. To learn more or sign up now, use this link:

NAME TAGS: What’s in a name? God filled Scripture with names. He knows all our names. BUT, in a large congregation like we have here at Crossville FUMC, we may recognize your face and not know your name.
