Impact Our City

Hope Initiative

Hope Initiative is a ministry offered to families facing struggles. Through it, families have an opportunity to draw closer to Jesus, to build up a support system, receive a delicious meal, and to receive tutoring for students. Hope Initiative is for anyone facing a struggle in life. It is particularly helpful for families seeking to find a path out of poverty. Click here for more information about Hope Initiative.

Manna House

Manna House food pantry ministry is open to anyone in our community who faces a food emergency. We offer clients the opportunity to “shop” from our healthy options every 30 days in the pantry located on the west side of the Cokesbury Center at 9915 Kingston Pike. We serve over 750 families a month at Manna House which is run by volunteers and funded 100% by donations. Click here for more information about Manna House Food Pantry.

Food for Kids
Every other week, our Cokesbury Kids ministry packs bags for Food for Kids – a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank and Knox County Schools that provides healthy foods for kids to take home on weekends, when they don’t have school meals available to them.  Volunteers are needed to help pack meals on Wednesday evenings during the school year. For more information, contact Debbie Gray
