Rally Day 2019
Sunday, September 8

This year’s Rally Day will see a different focus and intentionality. In sharing our gratitude, we are partnering with Rise Against Hunger to package over 10,000 meals in under 2 hours.

The day will begin with worship services at 8:00 and 10:00 am. A catered sandwich box lunch from Honey Baked Ham will follow. Three options are available: Ham, Turkey, or Vegetarian Garden Salad. The box prices are $5/box with a $20/family maximum. For individual lunch tickets, click on the button below, or, if you need a 5+ box order, visit the table in the foyer beginning August 11 or call the church office (865-588-0589).

Buy Your Lunch Tickets for Individuals and/or Families up to 4 Boxes

If you are buying individual tickets or a family set of tickets up to four boxes, use the online ticket line to purchase your tickets. If you are purchasing more than five boxes for your immediate family (parents and kids) please call the church office at 865-588-0589 and ask for Bro. Andrew. We can process your discount over the phone or in person (just not through the online ticket line). There is NO service fee for buying meal tickets.

Rise Against Hunger

Following the lunch, parishioners ages 5-105 are invited to participate in the Rise Against Hunger meal packing event. Younger volunteers can serve as runners. Adults and teens will serve at funnel stations, unloading food, boxing food, and weighing packages. There are even sit-down jobs at the sealing stations for those who cannot stand for long periods of time. Childcare is available for kids under age 5.

AscensionGear 2.0 will return for Rally Day.

As a fundraiser for the Rally Day mission project, the youth will be selling Rally Day t-shirts in a choice of colors: coal gray, peacock green, walnut, and neon coral. Adult and children’s sizes are available (children’s sizes are not available in the walnut color). We have set a goal of selling 300 t-shirts! Shirts will be $15 each. The profit from any shirts sold above the fundraising need of our Rise Against Hunger meal packing event will benefit the Youth Mission Fund. The deadline to order a shirt will be August 20. Shirts may be picked up on Rally Day following each service. If you wish to support our fundraiser without the purchase of a t-shirt, we welcome any donation as well.

Well, you’ve made it this far, what should you do next?
