Hands of Mercy
Parishioners bring items for our local food bank on the third Sunday of every month. We contact the pantry every month to see what their immediate needs are and then post it in the bulletin and on the screens during worship services. For more information, contact Joy Fisher.
Kairos is a Christian international prison ministry in which volunteers bring Christ's love and forgiveness to incarcerated individuals during a four-day weekend event.

Bradbury supports the Bledsoe County Correctional Comples outside of Pikeville, TN (normally twice a year) by providing home-baked cookies, meal vouchers, placemats, and prayers. Learn more at the Kairos website, and contact Dale Hensley to get involved.

Bradbury parishioners are active with Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit Christian housing ministry that believes every person should have a decent, safe, and affordable place to live.

We help the Roane County chapter by providing volunteers and financial support. Contact Todd Fisher to volunteer.
