Please take an angel and return the item to one of the labeled collection cans in the Narthex or at the door on the Neecham Street side of the building. You can also see other requested items via our Amazon Wishlist. Thank you in advance to all those that have or plan to support the ASCP Program.

Name Tags

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.

NAME TAG USES:

Learn Church Family Names

Represent Crossville FUMC when in the Community Volunteering

Ease of Interaction for New Visitors to our church

Easily Identify Persons to Obtain Information when Visiting the Church

It is not too late to order a name tag, if interested see the podium in the Narthex to sign-up for one or contact Rhonda in the church office at rhonda@crossvillefumc.com or (931) 484-3537. We accept $5 donations to cover the cost, but it is not required.
