"Finding Your Place in the Church" Sermon Series

Finding Your Place in the Church

Is church the place for you? Do you have the heart to serve others while others are serving you? The church is a body of many parts, all of them important and valuable members. The one thought to be the greatest is the servant of all. Jesus himself set servants in the church to uplift his people, and by example he demonstrates love that we all should show to others. During the Fall of 2014, Pastor David Spakes will deliver a series of messages about finding your place in the church. Come and led God lead you to the place where He has in mind for you to be.

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!
