Member Needs

It is the desire of the church to call on members who are in the hospital or ill at home. Members and friends of Signal Crest, knowing of such cases, are encouraged to notify the church by calling the church office at 423-886-2330 or you may contact Rev. Josh Kilbourne at 865-292-8137 or Rev. Bill Thornton at 423-580-0892. Please note, during this time, we may not be able to visit people in the hospital or other healthcare facilities based on pending practices from those providers but we will do our best to visit and call. 

Freezer Meal Pantry

Signal Crest United Methodist Church has a Frozen Meals Ministry. During this time, please contact Faye Hitchcock (423-280-0091), or Bertie Strickler (804-922-1610) regarding utilizing and serving in this ministry and they can assist you with your needs. 

Thank you for Continued Giving

Thank you for continuing to give. Your gifts are changing lives now more than ever. We’re still being the church even though the building is closed.  You have provided food to Signal Mountain Social Services, provided firewood to the families we serve, provided bread to the Orchard Knob Food Pantry, and are checking in on our home bound community and ensuring needs are met. So many of you have contacted us to see how you can help, thank you! We’re still sharing the hope of Jesus!
