Holiday Mail for Heroes
For the fourth year, Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville is collecting Christmas cards for the American Red Cross to distribute to police officers, firefighters, other local service men and women, and military troops who won't be at home for the holidays. If you would like to include some cards in what we are sending, you can bring yours to our Science Cafe event on Thursday, November 12 at Ijams Nature Center or to any of our church services at Ijams Nature Center through Sunday, November 22.
End Times Bible Study
On Sunday mornings, we are continuing our Bible study called "The End Times and Revelation According to Jesus Christ". If you enjoy studying Bible prophecy, you don't want to miss these church services!
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!
Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville is celebrating its fifth year in existence and our fourth year at Ijams Nature Center! We began to hold church services at our current location on April 8, 2012, and we have been meeting here weekly since May 27, 2012.

The discussion topic this month is "Outbreak: By the Numbers", mathematical models for predicting the spread of contagious diseases. Our guest scientist is Dr. Suzanne Lenhart, Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Tennessee, and Associate Director of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis.
Please RSVP by calling Ijams Nature Center at (865)577-4717 extension 110, or by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how many adults and children are in your group and the ages of the children.
Children are welcome to attend any of the Science Café meetings with their parents! For ages 5-12, we offer a Kid's Café program in a nearby area with a science lesson and activities that help make learning science fun! Kids can participate with the permission of their parents while the parents enjoy the adult-level discussion. For proper planning purposes, it is important that our children's director knows in advance how many kids will be attending and their ages.
The STFK Science Café is sponsored by a pro-science Evangelical Church called Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville. However, during Science Café meetings, discussion will be restricted to topics of science only. Religious viewpoints shall not be presented. Within the context of the Science Café, Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville does not advocate religion.
