WELCOME TO FOUNTAIN CITY UMC
Fountain City UMC is located at 212 Hotel Road, Knoxville, TN 37918 in the heart of Fountain City. Whether we are involved in a local mission project to meet the needs of our neighbors, or using creative means to tell about God’s love to people around the world, we are committed to loving people and helping to impact our world for Christ. If you have any questions, please contact our church office at (865) 689-5175. We look forward to meeting you soon!
We worship one God but offer two distinct types of worship through our traditional and contemporary services.
Traditional Worship Service
Traditional Worship Services meet on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in our Sanctuary. In addition to Biblically-based sermons, these services are enhanced by the music of our Chancel Choir, Youth and Children’s Choirs as well as other vocalists and musicians. Worshippers at these services are invited to pray at the altar and participate in special times of healing, reaffirmation and commitment.
The Journey Worship Service
The Journey Worship Service meets on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. in our Gym and features contemporary Christian music, a relevant message and a casual place where you are invited to come as you are to be transformed into the person God created you to be. This service is interpreted with American Sign Language so that the hearing impaired may enjoy the worship service as well.
Our Sunday School meets from 9:45 a.m. -10:45 a.m. in classrooms throughout the church. We have something for everyone in the family: Infant and Toddlers, Elementary Age Children, Youth (Grades 6-12), Young Adults, and Adults of All Ages. Each class offers an opportunity to strengthen your faith through fellowship and dialogue with other Christians. Learn more about our Sunday School classes by clicking here.
