At Adams UMC, we believe Christ calls us to be His hands and feet in our world. We take Christ's commandments to love God and our neighbors seriously and seek to embody that love wherever we are. In all that we do, we aim to grow deeper in our relationship with God and with our community. We hope you will join us as we seek to follow our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Our prayer team meets once a week to pray over our prayer list and any other concerns that we have learned about in our community. Not only do we pray for those on our list, but also go out and visit our sick and shut-in members so they always know that they are loved and prayed for at Adams UMC. If you would like to become a member of this team, please let our pastor know.
We have Sunday School for all ages. From nursery all the way to the wise and aged, we know you will find a Sunday School class that meets your needs. Sunday School begins at 9:00 AM.
We are proud to have many young families who call Adams UMC home. We have a nursery for Sunday School and for worship and believe that children are vital in the life of the church—seeking to engage them in our worship service as often as we can.
During this time of COVID our youth group, which usually meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM, is suspended until further notice. At youth, your child will engage in community service, deepen their faith, create lasting friendships, and learn what it means to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
We take the safety of our children and youth seriously at Adams UMC and encourage you to ask any questions about child safety to our pastor or anyone on our Leadership Team. You can also view our Safe Sanctuaries Policy on our policies page of this website.
Adams UMC is a partner church that supports the amazing ministry of Project Transformation. Each summer we provide the interns of Project Transformation a meal and we volunteer for one week to read with the children at one of their summer programming sites. If you would like to learn more about Project Transformation, go to their website: projecttransformation.org/Tennessee.
We are proud of our strong relationship with Jo Byrns elementary and high schools. We believe that a church is called to be a missional outpost for its community and take that calling seriously. So, we seek to be in relationship with our schools, knowing that communal transformation truly happens when churches and schools work closely together for the betterment of our children.
