Manley Kids


about us

We aim to supplement the family in reaching our kids, pursuing the maximum potential of our kids and our families to develop disciples who love God, love people, make disciples and who will change the world.  We believe that your kids will change the world!!  In believing that, we are dedicated to a high level of ministry, and having a safe, kid-friendly atmosphere.  We will teach Biblical truth, build and cultivate relationships that will help transfer faith and get children “in” on God’s great plan to reach the world with the Gospel.  We want our children to know Jesus and grow up to be like Him and have a ton of fun in the process!!

You may contact our pastor, Dwayne Moore at 423-586-8665 or  send an e-mail via our Contact Us form to submit any questions. Join us on Facebook and Twitter so we can follow you too!

Elementary K-4th grade students have a program where we will focus on how Jesus gives us life and how that changes our lives and the way we live!  We will have fun games, surprises, large group times packed with teaching and illustrations and  small groups to widen the circle of influence and give our children a place to connect and belong.  All kids are welcome and if you miss it, you’re missing out!

the crossing


The Crossing is a new 5th and 6th grade ministry at Manley. It’s an environment designed to meet the needs of these students as they transition from “children” to “youth.” By addressing the specific emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of preteens, The Crossing will help prepare children for entry into middle school and their teenage years.

Join us  Sunday Mornings at 9:30am and Wednesday Evenings at 6:00pm.

disability ministry

We would love for you to visit Manley with your child who has special needs.  To care for them most effectively, it is helpful for us to have an idea what their needs are so we can be prepared for them. Please contact the Disability Ministry Coordinator, Melissa Crabtree, via our Contact Us form (select Disability Ministry) to submit any questions. Or call Andy Ellis at 423 586 8665, and he will put you in touch with Melissa.
