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!

On Valentine's Day evening, Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville provided a free showing of "The Song" movie, a feature-length film inspired by the Song of Solomon. More than 50 people attended the movie event!

Pastor David Spakes has been preaching a sermon series from the Song of Solomon on Sunday mornings in January and February. The series will conclude with the final sermon on the first Sunday in March. The entire series will be available on DVD. For a limited time, there is no cost, but the DVDs must be pre-ordered and picked up after church on a Sunday morning. To request your copy, send an e-mail message to

February Singing Service

We designate the last Sunday morning of every month as a singing service. No sermon is planned for these Sundays. Any Christian who desires to sing or play an instrument for God's glory may join in. And of course, everyone can come listen and enjoy the praise and worship. Our next singing service is scheduled to take place on February 22. If you or someone you know is not faithfully attending another church someplace else, or if you would just like to visit, 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!
