The Bible-Teaching Sunday Schools

There is a class for every member of your family. The purpose of the Sunday School is not to merely teach a Bible lesson. It is to teach, train, and equip so that we might, in turn, teach others the eternal truths we have been taught.

For more information about the Sunday School, please contact Lisa Snow in the Sunday School office at 865.938.8182.

International Ministry

Director: Tim & Laura Carte

The greater Knoxville area, including the surrounding counties, is the temporary home of thousands of students, professionals, and workers. God has literally brought the world to our doorstep. The International Class reaches these visitors with the message of the gospel and a compassionate welcome. Those attending our international Sunday School will find a group of friends with similar interests and a common desire to walk with Christ. Many former international students have now returned to their home country, carrying the message of the gospel to family and friends. These classes meet on the campus of The Crown College at 2307 West Beaver Creek Dr. Powell, TN.
