LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The little brick church that looks like it belongs in a Norman Rockwell painting is doing big things in Fincastle and beyond.

Fincastle United Methodist Church’s Thanksgiving baskets that numbered 60 last year were nearly doubled this year at 100. All 100 were either picked up or delivered on Saturday.

FUMC even hosts a Blessing Box outside its family life center.

That’s not all. Fincastle Methodist will again support 20 children for Christmas through the Department of Children’s Services.

“This isn’t any one particular group in the church. It’s the church as a whole,” said church member Jerry Dagley. He goes on to say that FUMC delivers 70 meals monthly in one day.

Church Pastor Steve Evans tells his congregation, “Your church is alive and moving forward.” The pastor expressed his thanks to all who gave toward these ministries.

Jerry Dagley estimates Fincastle United Methodist Church may be at least 100 years old if not older.

Dagley praised Manager George Hooks and the staff at IGA. The IGA team prepared all 100 of the Thanksgiving boxes. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/25/2020-6AM)
