Sponsored by the Mission Committee, Smyrna First United Methodist Church


For 5 straight weekends beginning in October, volunteers will be working on major home repair projects - anything from roofing repairs to bathroom replacements and everything in between. Mountain T.O.P partners with families and the USDA Rural Development office to fund projects that will address severe and substandard housing issues for the most vulnerable families in Grundy County, TN. If you are 18 and older and looking for a mission opportunity, this is your chance!

SFUMC is collecting items to donate to the Fall Festival: athletic shoes, hats, coats, scarves, gloves, socks and books, that will be given away at the Fall Festival. This event gives the community much needed winter clothing.
