    Celebrate Recovery Thousands of people within our city struggle with addiction and with compulsive and co-dependent behavior. Regardless of the form, whether its alcohol and drug abuse, eating disorders, negative self-talk or many others, all too often the road of addiction ends i n destructive and life-destroying behaviors that leave families in its wake.

    As followers of Jesus Christ, we trust in a God who longs to help people sing, “My chains are gone, I’ve been set free.” We are called to be instruments of healing and liberation right here in our community. Therefore, we are excited to announce that we are partnering with churches throughout our area to participate in North Knoxville Celebrate Recovery.

    Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered approach to helping people overcome hurts, hangups and habits that are ruining their lives and the lives of their families. Examples of the patterns that Celebrate Recovery can help people through include but are not limited to alcohol and drug dependency, pornography, low self-esteem, depression, anger, fear or rejection, and perfectionism.

    Celebrate Recovery will meet at the Old Smithwood School at 3203 Tazewell Pike Tuesday nights at 6:00 p.m., beginning August 5. We hope that you will make a commitment to being a part of God’s movement to help people get their lives back by breaking free of the things that bind them. For more information or to participate in Celebrate Recovery, visit northknoxcr.org or call Randy Frye at 689-5175.

    The Stories That Shape Us Inevitably, our lives are shaped by stories. Few shows are more talked about every week online and around the water cooler than Downton Abbey, House of Cards and the Walking Dead. One of the most popular movie franchises that keeps our attention is the journey of Katniss Everdeen through the Hunger Games. And there are few books that have reached more youth and young adults than John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. The big story that determines the course of our lives is, of course, the story that God is writing in us and in the world as revealed in the Bible. During the month of August in The Journey, we’ll be wrestling with how the Gospel interacts with these popular stories that continue to attract our attention and that we can’t help but keep talking about.

    Your Witness: Faith Sharing How did you come to experience faith in a real way? FCUMC members have been sharing their faith stories through videos in The Journey. Watch the stories on FCUMC’s Facebook page.

    Pastor Cornered

    For three months this spring and summer we took time to reflect upon the three imperatives found in the Easter story: “Fear Not!” “Come and See!” “Go and Tell!” Those words give us a portrait of Jesus’ expectations as well as our mandate as a church. Now that August has arrived and we will soon be entering into our fall programs and studies, I hope you will keep those imperatives in mind.

    Don’t be afraid of commitment. Yes, making commitments of our time, our energies and our resources do impact our schedules and force us to consider what is really important in my life. Nevertheless, I hope we will not be afraid of making ourselves available to God’s purposes, of exploring what new things God wants to accomplish in our lives as the church or as individuals, or taking a step of faith that we have never taken before.

    Come and see what we have to offer in ways of spiritual formation. Make worship and Sunday school a priority. Consider being part of one of our Wednesday Bible Studies and going deeper in your relationship with Christ. Take time to look at all the different opportunities we have for you to serve as a leader of our congregation or to be involved in some area of ministry. Dare to look at how God can grow your faith and the fruitfulness of your life.

    Finally, go and tell the things that are happening. Share with your friends and family the hope that you have found and the many ways God has blessed your life. The best advertising for God’s kingdom doesn’t come on billboards or air on our televisions…it comes from a faithful witness and a heartfelt invitation to someone else.

    My hope is that we will follow those Easter imperatives and experience a resurrection of hope, joy, meaning and fruitfulness. Jesus has called us. How we respond?

    Welcome New FCUMC Members

    KARM Dragon Boat Race: FCUMC Award Winning FCUMC’s Feeding Frenzy thanks the church for all the donations and support of its participation in the 2014 KARM Dragon Boat Festival. The team raised $9,180 for KARM, which placed us fourth overall in fundraising. The event raised a total of $202,217. Member Les Gatto was awarded a trophy for being the overall top individual fundraiser and the team won the trophy for the best decorated team tent (using mostly VBS decorations)!

    2014 marks our best year yet on the water with a time of 1:20 in the first round and 1:16 in the second (250 meter race). If not for a thunderstorm moving into the area during the second round that cancelled the rest of the event, it is likely we would have advanced into the top 16 medal round.

    Daniel and Amanda Dixon joined on June 22 during the 11:00 a.m. traditional service.

    Randy Frye, Senior Pastor Why I Play: Youth Choir Tour 2014 By: Emily Hardin Emily Hardin is 18 and will be a freshman at MTSU in the fall.

    I have always enjoyed making music, but I never knew why. I had always assumed I liked music because my parents did. But these past few choir tours have helped me realize that the reason I enjoy making music is to bring a smile to other people’s faces. It makes me so happy to see the people in the nursing homes bearing huge grins and clapping along to “We are Marching” and “Praise his Holy Name.” This tour was also incredibly fun because I got to visit the Symphony Center and it was cool to get to sing in there. The Country Music Hall of Fame was cool too, and I learned a lot, and I’m glad I gave it a chance because I am not a big country music fan
