Corona Virus

Stay up to date with Pickett's response to the Corona Virus

Pickett Family,

We want to provide you an update on the communication plans we have put in place to help address the changing nature of the Coronavirus, and its impact on our community. We want to assure you that we are receiving regular updates through our relationship with the local hospitals as well as staying on top of updates and information provided by the Center for Disease Control and the Tennessee Health Department

In regard to our facilities, we strive to provide as safe an environment as possible. In our worship spaces and classrooms as well as our childcare areas, we will continue to sanitize and sterilize all spaces and remain diligent in wiping down counters, doorknobs and toys as they are used.

Following the recommendation of our Bishop and District Superintendent, we will not hold worship services Sunday March 15th or Sunday March 22nd. We encourage you to watch the previously recorded worship service that will be posted online each Sunday at 10am. 

Also, in response to the evolving circumstances around the coronavirus, we have created a page on our website at where you can find current information about the status of programs, events and services as well as any information that needs to be relayed to the church family.

As a church with a heart for serving others, we want to help those who are struggling and who may need spiritual support and prayer. If you know of anyone in need – particularly senior adults, or those who are impaired – or if you have personal prayer concerns, you can let us know by going to We have pastors and staff who will be responding to the prayer requests, concerns or needs that are sent to this prayer form.

While we may be staying close to home a little more these days, we encourage you to connect with family or those around you who may be particularly isolated at this time. Phone calls, texts, emails and FaceTime, Skype or other technology can enable us to stay in community and continue to care for one another.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

—Psalm 91:9-10
