STFK Movie Night (January 28)

STFK Movie Night logo

Our church makes an event out of watching movies together, partly for outreach and partly just for fun. Everyone is invited to join in on the selected Friday night each month at 8:00 P.M. for this event. Snacks and drinks provided. The church building is located at 241 Neals Landing Road, Suite 201, Knoxville, TN 37924.

Our license allows us to show classic movies and also brand-new movies. There is one catch, though. We can't advertise the name of the movie that we have selected. However, we can offer a clue about our move selection. Here it is:

"This is going to be a MARVELOUS movie night!"

You can read our statement of faith here. We are worshipers of God, followers of Jesus Christ, and supporters of science and science education. We see no conlict between believing in the Creator and understanding the creation. As a church, we take no official position on Genesis chapters 1-11 in the Bible, so controversial matters such as the age of the Earth are avoided. Newcomers can basically believe what they want about Genesis 1-11 without being judged for it.

People usually think of a skeptic as someone who finds it difficult to believe in God. We are not a church comprised of skeptics. We are a church who ministers to skeptics in an atmosphere of mutual respect where skeptics can explore the concept of believing in God.

In the South, many Christians have this concept that the study science is somehow a threat to their faith. We also exist to help those Christians learn that faith in God and the study of science are not mutually exclusive.

Kid's Café

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.
