Brainerd Church is excited to be working with Ministry Architects as we seek to discern God’s plan for our church in our community, our country and our world. As you can well imagine much of our work has been placed in a holding pattern because of COVID-19, but that does not mean we have stopped working. Check here for more updates as we have news to share.

Welcome To Brainerd Church

Thank you for visiting our webpage. We are in the process of redoing our whole website so please bear with us. If there is something you are looking for but cannot find, please call the church office with any questions at 423.698.6951.

Brainerd Church is a wonderful church family that loves being together at worship and fellowship. As with many churches in our community, we are feeling the pinch of COVID-19 and the demographic changes in our community. However we are passionate about being servants to our community, as well as disciple makers for the Kingdom of God. 

We are now worshiping live once again! We are excited to be back together to worship. It is not exactly like it was in February, but we are glad to be back in the Lord’s House together. We invite you to join us as we worship. However, know that masks are required inside the building, social distancing will be practiced, and seating is socially distanced.

We will continue our Facebook live and Youtube upload if that is your best option at this time.

Our prayer for you and for everyone is that the varied complications from COVID-19 will begin to heal, and we can move boldly into a new future. May each of us follow Jesus so that He can use us to change the world for the Kingdom of God.
