Teachers Needed
  [Less]

It is that unusual time of year when everyone is on vacation but we begin the most important work we do in our children's Sunday school: recruit leaders for fall. Church Street has preschool classes that need teachers who will love, guide, and build lasting relationships with our young children. Our combined three & four-year-old class needs a team of four adults who will commit to leadership for one year. Four teachers on a team allows each team member time off to occasionally return to their own class throughout the year.

Spirit Adventure, our rotation Sunday school for first-fifth graders needs shepherds for each grade level. This commitment is also for one year and team shepherding is encouraged. Shepherds take attendance, welcome children, help with snacks, and accompany the students to their classes each week where other adults handle the teaching responsibilities.

Sunday school is the cornerstone of our Children's Ministry. Please consider making a difference in the lives of our children this year by being a teacher or shepherd. Contact Sue Isbell at sisbell@churchstreetumc.org to volunteer.

Women and The New Testament
  [More]

The Small Group Ministry invites you to join us on Friday, June 27, at 6 p.m. for a free lecture about Paul and his writings in their cultural and political contexts, as well as within the context of the developing Christian movement. Author and former associate professor of religion, Dr. Jennifer Bird will discuss how the directives in Paul's letters about women, sex and marriage become both more complex and more clear when read with the Roman Empire's influence in mind. Come expecting to add some pieces to this complex puzzle, and to have some discussion about how to handle it all, today.

We will gather at the Remedy Back Room (located at 125 W Jackson Ave. in downtown Knoxville) beginning at 6 p.m. for mingling and appetizers. The lectures will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a question and answer session. The evening is free and sponsored by small group ministries of CSUMC. All are welcome!
