Light and Life- Christmas musical and dinner.

Mark your calendars now for “Light and Life”, a musical featuring the Gray UMC choir and Praise Band.
Because of the advent of Jesus, we can know LIGHT & LIFE in a way we never could have otherwise. When Jesus came, He brought LIGHT for us to see the reality of who He is, and LIFE so we could know the reality of our creator as a Father.
Come out and fellowship with your church family as the music department
explores the advent of Jesus’ coming. 

“Light and Life
is a musical featuring the Gray UMC choir and Praise Band.  This special musical will be Sunday, December 15 with dinner served at 6:00 and the concert at 7:00.  

The meal is at 6:00 in our Family Life Center (chicken, potatoes, green beans, rolls, drinks and dessert) for $5.00 per person.  

Reservations are required for dinner! Call or email the church office at 423-477-3792 or

Blue Christmas Worship Experience

Blue Christmas

Saturday, December 22, at 7pm


These past two months and, presently, December have presented us with three holidays, Halloween/All Saints Day, Thanksgiving and Advent/Christmas.  Each holiday has brought its own emotional expectation.  Halloween/All Saints leaves us with the wonderment of the afterlife, Thanksgiving helps us ponder gratitude and Advent/Christmas help us prepare for a God who comes in the most unexpected ways.  The thought of mixing all three together takes away from each.

This is especially true with Christmas.  Christmas has such a family, cozy, secure feeling attached to it.  Just as you could not imagine mixing this vision with Halloween or Thanksgiving, how could you mix it with a funeral?  Yet that is where many of our family and friends find themselves every year.  Many have suffered a death of a loved one, a divorce, a job loss or a new challenge of living with cancer.  (These are just a few, life presents us with many more.)  Merriment around these situations can be like salt on an open wound, reminding them of what was and what will never be. 


That is why Gray United Methodist Church will be offering a Blue Christmas worship experience.  On the longest night of the year, Saturday December 22, Gray UMC will open its doors at 7pmTears will be welcome as we longingly read God’s promises, recite the words of our ancient brothers and sisters and sing songs of hope.  Each participant will be invited to come forward and light a candle to represent their loss.  Our worship will be a reflective place for all who grieve and honor the human emotions that surround loss.  Our time together will represent our long struggle before the light of Christ shines fully.  We invite you to join us, Saturday December 22 at 7pm in our chapel for a worship experience entitled “Blue Christmas”….Pastor Amy
