06/28 at 7-8:30pm

We'll meet at the home of Beverly and Rob Burdette to discuss a pair of novels: The Stranger by Albert Camus and The Mersault Investigation by Kamel Daoud, which is a retelling of Camus's novel from the perspective of the Arab who is killed by the protagonist. Both are short novels and can easily be read in a few weeks. For information, contact Ed Sullivan.

03/16 at 7pm

Are you interested in what's going on in the world?  Do you like to know the story-behind-the-story?  We'll pick a different current events topic each month for an informal group discussion.  Bring a snack to share & beverage of your choice (adult or otherwise).

PAST EVENTS


Knoxville PrideFest & Pride Parade

June 23

Thanks to everyone who made posters, walked in the parade, and volunteered to staff our booth at PRIDEFEST 2018. It was a joyful day and a great way to express the extravagant welcome of COS and God’s Love toward all

COS Kids Camp - Our Beautiful Little Planet

June 18-21

We had a total of 22 kids who participated in Kids Camp this year.  Several of our families were out of town for the week which made for a lighter attendance.  However, the fun and learning were not diminished!  Our Beautiful Little Planet program focused on ecology and Creation Care; we learned about protecting our water sources, recycling, reusing by shopping at thrift stores, and saving energy.  Thank you to all who helped make it happen!  

Memorial Day Picnic and Play Day

May 28

COS Memorial Day Gathering was a big success!  We had over 50 attendees, lots of fun activities, and plenty of picnic food.  Thanks to Joan Paul and her team for organizing!

Keeping Families Together Immigration Rally

June 28

Thanks to everyone who showed up at last night’s Keeping Families Together rally to support immigrant families in our community and protest policies like 287-G locally and the Trump Administration’s zero tolerance policy at the border. Your presence and your voice make a difference to our neighbors!
