Recently Interstate Mechanical installed Global Plasma Solutions EC-48 Bi-Polar Needle Point Ionization units in the Knoxville First SDA Church air handlers. Studies have shown that GPS NPBI technology safely cleans indoor air. When ions generated come in contact with  pathogens, they disrupt the pathogens surface proteins rendering them inactive. These units are similar to system installed at KAS earlier this year.

Sunday afternoon, December 20, 2020 our walking group ventured downtown Knoxville. This time our group included 17 community members in addition to Robert & Sue Fuller, Carol Jacobs and Stan Wolcott.

Robert Fuller organized this event and coordinated with the officials at Market Square to allow group caroling after our walk. As usual, refreshments were provided after the walk, this time Robert made enchiladas, Raj (one of our community members) made ginger cookies and to finish it off we had hot cider and small treats from Cinnaholic.

During the caroling, members of our group handed out a candy cane along with the printed story of the legend of the candy cane. It was truly a delightful evening.

Currently our walking group has roughly 2200 members although our average attendance is roughly 20 people per event. We invite you to join us any Sunday during the winter at 3:00 PM. To view the schedule of events, please visit our meetup page -
