Knoxville Congregation

We are a congregation in mission, but also a congregation in transition from a building-based ministry. We have sold our church building as it no longer fits our needs, which interestingly happened just as all religious ministries halted in-person services in buildings and moved ministries online due to the COVID-19 heath crisis.

We encourage everyone to stay healthy and save lives by wearing masks, social distancing, staying informed, and following all guidelines put out by health officials in your area.

We look forward to worshiping in person again, but in the meantime are glad we can fellowship and worship together using ZOOM.

If you would like to join us for one of our interactive Sunday services on Zoom,    use our Contact Page to send us a message, or email one of our co-pastors below and ask to be added to our invite list, so you can receive a link to join us.
