As of right now we will be having regular service times tomorrow at The Free Gift Gospel Mission.  If this were to change for some reason, we will post the schedule change.  Hope to see you all at Sunday school in the morning at 10a.m.

No Church Tonight (Wednesday, February 25)

After consulting with the deacons, examining weather reports, and praying to make an informed decision that takes safety and well-being into consideration, we will NOT be having church tonight at 7p.m.  This is largely due to the fact of weather reports that indicate several more inches of snow to fall in Kingsport beginning as early as 4p.m.  Hopefully we can meet Sunday.  We love you church!

Schedule change for Sunday, February, 22 (Church at 3p.m.)

I’ve received several reports that some roads around Kingsport are still rough and things haven’t cleared much at all.  As of this morning the church parking lot was impassable.  We are cancelling morning and evening services on Feb. 22, but we will plan on having ONE SERVICE tomorrow afternoon at 3p.m.  I’ll check the church parking lot and gather road condition information tomorrow around noon, and we’ll re-assess at that time.  Please plan to be in attendance tomorrow at 3p.m. unless we announce otherwise.  Be safe and stay warm.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

Wednesday Night Service Cancelled (Feb. 18)

Due to continued icy conditions and the extreme wind chill factors that are expected tonight, services at The Free Gift Gospel Mission will be cancelled.  If someone were to have car trouble in this weather, even a short walk with the expected  -20 wind chill could be life threatening.  Stay safe and warm and we’ll hope and pray for Sunday.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

Regular Services on 2/15/15

The Free Gift Gospel Mission of 1025 Maple Street in Kingsport will continue with regular service times today.  If you can make it safely, come on in out of the cold and worship with us.  Sunday school starts at 10a.m.  We’ll continue in the Book of Hosea this morning at 11a.m., and Bro. Steve Gregory will be preaching tonight at 6p.m.  If you do not feel you can make it safely, stay home and be safe.  Personally I feel confident that my family can make it safely.  If you live in a bad place, don’t risk slipping on ice or having a car accident.  Use your wisdom.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern

11 Years of Uninterrupted Radio Broadcasting!

Earlier today I got the radio broadcast edited and submitted for airing at 4:30p.m. tomorrow. The Free Gift Broadcast airs each Saturday at this same time on WMCH 1260AM radio in Church Hill. I invite you all to give it a listen. Also, it just now occurred to me that this week marks the 11th anniversary of The Free Gift Broadcast. We aired for the first time on the 2nd week of February back in 2004. God has kept us on the air uninterrupted for these last 11 years. Please keep The Free Gift Broadcast in your prayers as we are new officially in our 12th year of radio broadcasting.

Love in Christ,

Pastor Vern
