Located at 130 Chota Lane, Tellico Village, TN our services are at 8:00 a.m. and 10:15 am on Sunday. We call ourselves a “community” church because we believe Jesus made himself available to the whole world-not just a little group of select people. We’re not overly troubled by folks who come to us with different beliefs, ideas, or experiences. We find reason to “commune” with each other not because we all think or believe alike, but because we are all seeking the same thing – a Way to a better world, a Truth that sets people free, and a Life that is abundantly full and meaningful.
