Bluegrass Church

Many of you may not be aware that Christ United Methodist Church in Halls (north of Knoxville) has a bluegrass service once a month. It is held the 2nd Sunday each month at 9am. The service is traditional with the exception of the music which is provided by a different band each month. The sermon is the same as in the 11am service. However, the choir is not present for the 9am service. Today's group was Greenbrier who did an excellent job providing special music and also accompanying the congregation. They performed one song from their new cd which is due for release on March 29. We have seen several groups there including Shadow Ridge (one of the bands who perform here. The Bluegrass service appears to be one of the most attended services the church has. We especially enjoy it. Usually there are about 5 other folks from our church there. To remember when the service is try this:
If it's 2 it's blue and if it's 9 it's time! Dr. Bruce Marston, Pastor can be reached at 865-922-1412 for information. Tell him his buddies in Kodak sent you!
If you're in Knoxville on the 2nd Sunday of each month, stop by and check it out. Dress is casual and the church is easy to find. Their web address:
