The House is a community of 6-12 grade students trying to figure out the best way to live life. We believe that Jesus meant what he said when he told us he came to give us an "abundant life!”


We really hope to see you really soon. If you’re curious what to expect on your first visit, just keep reading!


What To Expect

We’re glad you’ve decided to give us a try. On your first visit, you can expect to be greeted by our great team of youth leaders. These adult volunteers are excited for you and your life, and they’ll be quick to ask about your favorite things and show you around a bit.


No matter when you join us or what you think about God, we’re excited for you to be a part of what we’re doing at the House! Bring your questions, excitement, fears, dreams and every part of you, we can’t wait to get to know you and remind you that God loves you and so do we!

Dossett Chapel

Every Wednesday we come together to reach children who are outside the walls of Tullahoma First United Methodist Church. Not only do we strive to show them the love of Jesus Christ but we also provide then with a place where they can go to experience a sense of community in a safe place. 

Dossett Chapel also has a Sunday school program on Sunday mornings. The children learn about Jesus, fellowship with each other and share breakfast together. We are always welcoming others who want to spread love, joy, hope and laughter to the Dossett Community. There is no weekly commitment and please feel free to bring your own children with you! 


If you are interested in learning more about our Dossett Ministry please contact Larry Dickerson at larryd33@gmail.com and he will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
