The Song

"The Song" Movie Night and Sermon Series

The Song of Solomon is a book of the Bible that talks about a young couple meeting and getting to know each other. It describes their engagement, their wedding, their wedding night, and sex. God created and cares about all of life, even this part of it!

"The Song" is a feature-length movie the presents the story of the Song of Solomon in a modern setting. Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville will be showing this movie on Valentine's Day for couples who want to awaken love in their relationship or for anyone who wants to become a more devoted partner. Send e-mail to for more information.

In conjunction with the movie, Pastor David Spakes will preach a sermon series from the Song of Solomon on Sunday mornings around Valentine's Day. And, depending on the public response and level of interest, we may organize a Bible study based on "The Song" for later in the year. Please come and be warmly welcomed!

About Our Church

Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville meets weekly for church service on Sunday mornings (see schedule below) at Ijams Nature Center in South Knoxville. Click here for directions. We are an independent, nondenominational, Evangelical Christian Church that is friendly to the sciences. We welcome sincere skeptics to consider starting a relationship with God in fellowship with a group of Christians who are not judgmental against beliefs such as a 13.7-billion-year-old universe and evolution. We consider the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and inerrant in the original text, and where science and the Bible do not appear to agree, the flaw lies in human inability to fit the puzzle pieces together (the church takes no official position on such matters). We study from both classic (KJV, etc.) and modern (NIV, NRSV, etc.) English translations of the Bible. Please come and be warmly welcomed!
