We’re excited to share with you EQUIP, our Wednesday evening program.
As we seek to live out our vision to be “the faithful presence of Jesus’ love in ordinary life,” we recognize that we need others to help us to understand what it looks like to live faithfully in our homes, in our community, in our workplaces, and in our world. And even more than that, we need a community who we can walk with as we think practically about what it looks like to follow Jesus in an increasingly disorienting and busy world.
To that end we’ve assembled an outstanding collection of teachers from our congregation and community so that together we can take another step into the life that Jesus is calling us toward in each of the four spheres of ordinary life (home, community, workplace, world). Our hope is that during each of the four-week ‘quarters’ of 2018-2019 you’ll find a class that will be engaging and will equip you to take a next step as the presence of Jesus’ love for our world. So come and join us and see how God is calling you!
What to Expect
Each quarter is preceded by an all-church gathering where we’ll meet for a time of fun and fellowship or hear from a speaker on a topic that’s important to our vision of being “the faithful presence of Jesus’ love in an ordinary life.” During our quarters, regular children’s, children’s choir, and student activities will take place.
No need to sign up for the seminars – just join us! If you would like help picking a class that’s right for you or have any questions about our offerings, please contact Joey Sherrard, Associate Pastor of Discipleship.

Quarter 4 Kickoff: Signal Pres goes to the Oscars
Each year the Academy Awards tell us a lot about the current state of our culture. Each film nominated for “Best Picture” tells a story that reflects the climate of the world around us: What does the world around us care about? What do our neighbors think “the good life” looks like? And where do we see people posing questions that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can answer?
Join us as we kickoff the final quarter of 2018-2019 EQUIP with an event that will help us to understand the neighbors and world we’re called to love. We’ll take a look at the movies nominated for “Best Picture” this year, thinking both charitably and critically about the stories we see on the big screen and ask how we can think about them in light of the Big Story of the Bible.
Our doors open at 5:30 PM and we serve until 6:30 PM, so if you are running late we will take care of you. In an effort to accommodate a variety of food preferences and dietary needs, each week adults may choose from either a blue plate meal or a soup and salad meal. Children are served a special children’s meal and volunteers are available to assist parents with serving the children’s meals and carrying their food to the table.
It is always helpful to make a reservation, but it’s not required and if plans change we understand. It is our hope that each family will take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and connect with fellow church members each week!
Meal reservations may be made by:
- Signing up on the Ritual of Friendship on Sunday mornings,
- Calling the church at (423) 886-2190, extension 3220 and leaving a voicemail,
- Find the EQUIP schedule, menu, and make reservations on our site!
Children & Youth Activities
Agape Club and 5th are the Children’s Ministry programs of Signal Pres. Each provides opportunities for fun, learning, and worship as the children gather together. Agape Club is for four year olds thru 4th Graders and 5th is for our 5th Graders. We meet each Wednesday from 6:15 – 7:30 PM on the Children’s Floor. Joy and Praise Choir meet as part of Agape Club.

Joy and Praise Choirs meet each Wednesday from 6:15 – 7:00 PM. In Joy Choir, children sing, move, create, and play games and instruments to learn musical and singing fundamentals. They learn spiritual truths by singing songs of praise and catechisms. Joy Choir will have the opportunity to use these skills to lead in worship on Sunday morning. Praise Choir children begin to learn the fundamentals of healthy, beautiful singing, and gain music literacy skills through movement and playing instruments. We explore God’s Word and His love through Scriptural songs and catechisms. Praise Choir will have several opportunities to lead in worship on Sunday Morning. Joy Choir is for 4 Years – Kindergarten and meet in Room 201, Cornerstone Building. Praise Choir is for Grades 1 & 2 and meet in the Music Suite.
