The Family Promise Spooktacular Family Night is a Trunk or Treat event at Parkway Drive-In on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 beginning at 6:00 p.m. The cost is $20 per car. This would be a wonderful way for your family or Sunday School class or other small group to celebrate Halloween and help a fabulous organization at the same time! If you are interested, please email Mary Lynn Roy at or call her at 724-6234, or email April Smith of Family Promise at or call April at 209-2096. There are still slots available! If you would love to hand out candy but are not sure how to decorate your car let us know and we will make sure that someone can help you with decorating. Volunteers are also needed to help with parking.  
We have two hikes scheduled for October. On Saturday, October 13, there will be a hike along the Appalachian Trail to Max Patch as part of the Sterchi Lodge Retreat in North Carolina. There are openings for the retreat or you could also drive there to participate in the hike. Contact Pastor Laura or Bob Hayes to make those arrangements. On Saturday, October 20, Jim and Barbara Leach will host us at their home in Laurel Valley in Townsend. We’ll access the Ace Gap Trail from there and then get treated to a wonderful lunch with spectacular views from their deck. We will leave from the church at 9:30 a.m. Please make a reservation through the pew pad or church office so that we can know how much food to prepare and to let you know of any schedule adjustments.

Dealing with Dementia
Transitioning into the fall season can be an especially difficult time for patients suffering from Alzheimer's Disease or related can be tougher for their caregivers. If you or someone you know is providing care to a person affected by dementia, please join us on Sunday, October 21st from 2pm-6pm at Broadway United Methodist Church for Dealing with Dementia. Dealing with Dementia is an all inclusive guide for dementia caregivers. The class addresses many aspects of care, how to hand problem behaviors, self-care for caregivers, and national and local resources to support family caregivers. The cost of attendance is free and each attendee will receive a free 360 page guidebook for Dealing with Dementia.
The class is instructed by Becky Martin, Speech Pathology Services of East Tennessee, and Aundrea Scholem, Foothills Adult Care Enrichment Services and Knox Aging Advocate.
Pre-registration is required. To sign up, contact the church office.
Grounded Sunday School Class
The Grounded Sunday School Class is in need of a new leader. Bob Hayes has been with us for a long time, but has decided he needs to try other opportunities. We are a very friendly group. We wish to stay together. We are definitely not intimidating! If you are able to help us out, please contact either Elaine Russell or Sara Tuck. In the meantime, we ask the congregation to pray for our class.
Every year we have thousands of people walking past our church for the downtown Spooktacular Extravaganza. As part of our outreach to the community, we participate by providing clean bathrooms, free water and candy for the trick-or-treaters that parade down our street in droves. We are already collecting candy for this event. If you would like to help provide candy for this event you can leave it in the box located in the church office. This year’s Friday night Spooktacular Extravaganza will be Oct 26. If you would like to help or learn more about the event, please contact Jennifer McIntyre or Lisa Hendrickson.
