HEART 4 INSKIP NORWOOD
One of the purposes of our church is to Love Our Community and let them know that we have a heart for serving them and meeting their needs however we can. We have a variety of "Heart 4 Inskip Norwood" events throughout the year that help us share the love of Christ with those around us. Keep an eye on the "Upcoming Events" tab above for future community outreach opportunities!
BACKPACKS FOR THE HOMELESS
This is a local ministry that provides backpacks with much needed items such as hygiene items, food, clothing, etc., to the Knoxville area homeless on a monthly, continuing basis. Most of all, we let them know that while society might look through or past them, God loves them and has called us to provide. For information on how to help with supplies or packing the backpacks, call Peggy Reagan at 865-406-8781.

WALLACE MOBILE HEALTHCARE TEAM
Wallace Mobile Healthcare was created to bring quality basic health services to our uninsured and underprivileged neighbors in our community and nearby rural areas. Their medical services are completely free to those who qualify. The goal of this team is to share the love of Christ with our neighbors by bringing them much needed basic healthcare services, wellness education, and spiritual support.
SEND CITY PARTNERSHIP
It’s been said that if you reach the cities, you’ll reach the nations. With 83 percent of the population now living in metropolitan areas, the major population centers in North America are vital mission fields for kingdom growth and influence. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) has prioritized its work in the cities with the greatest spiritual need and potential influence throughout North America. Wallace is partnering with
Mark Johnson and Encourage Church in Cleveland, Ohio, to help them effectively serve the people of their city.
Throughout each year food, cleaning supplies, clothing, and monatary donations are dropped off at Wallace to benefit the Appalachian area. Twice a year, our church sends a team of people to deliver supplies, help meet the needs of those in the area, and share the gospel. Each year over 300 families will be impacted for Jesus! Contact Sandy Bolton for more information: 865.688.4343 x121.
Reaching the C* People
The C* people are an unreached people group (UPG) in the Americas. By definition, a UPG is less than 2% evangelical Christian. There are over 5,000 UPGs in the world. The International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention has challenged churches to embrace these UPGs and work alongside missionary personnel to develop strategies to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Stay tuned for more information on how Wallace will start reaching these people.
Hope Through Him Ministries
For the past several summers, our student, college, and young adult teams have served alongside Hope Through Him Ministries to build relationships and share the gospel with children and adults in villages in Honduras! We plan to send multiple teams again in the summer of 2018.
The Cooperative Program
Wallace & Cumberland give 10.3% of all undesignated receipts (your tithes & offerings) to the Cooperative Program that helps fund the missions and ministries of the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the SBC's International Missions Board, North American Missions Board, Six Seminaries and other important eftorts. Additionally, Wallace Memorial supports our local Knox County Association of Baptists for local training and benevolence.
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering changes lives forever by empowering North American missionaries to bring the gospel to the lost. With over 269 million lost people, North America and its major cities are some of the most spiritually dark places in the world. Join us on the mission to equip every missionary and reach every lost person in the United States and Canada.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Starting in 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering was established to empower the international missions efforts for Southern Baptists. After more than a century, the annual offering continues its steady growth. Your giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.
