Our Ministries

Just Lead After School Program

Emerald Youth Foundation is committed to ministering with Knoxville's urban young people right where they live, attend school and play.  That's why JustLead, our youth leadership program, is implemented through a network of urban neighborhood churches and faith-based organizations located throughout Knoxville.  JustLead's afterschool program for elementary and middle school students includes tutoring, homework help, health/fitness/nutrition instruction, field trips and service learning opportunities.  Additionally, we offer discipleship opportunities for all ages, including mid-week Bible study, small groups, corporate worship and inter-generational faith activities.

Sunday School

Sunday School is for all ages.  An opportunity and time for young and old alike to learn more about the story of Jesus and practical ways we live our life for Him.  We have multiple classes for children, youth, and adults.  Sunday School begins at 9:15 am.

Wednesday Night

In conjunction with JustLead, our Wednesday night program provides activities and spiritual growth for elementary and middle school ages.  A meal is provided at 5:45pm.  Periodically, an adult small group study is provided and led by our pastor.

United Women of Faith

United Women of Faith seek to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship, and education so that they can inspire, influence and impact local and global communities.  We seek to improve the lives of women, children, and youth in the United States and world.  We are advocates of peace and justice, economic inequality, and human rights for all.  We regularly meet once a month following Sunday worship.

Food Pantry

Jesus said, "the hungry you will always have with you."  Hunger and need exist in Knoxville and beyond and we are committed to do what we can to alleviate such need.  One of our mission endeavors is to provide non-perishable food for those requesting help.  Our food pantry is open on Mondays and Wednesdays (10:00 am - 11:30 am).
