Whether you’re new to or skeptical about faith, new to town or a lifelong Knoxvillian, we welcome you. We hope you’ll learn more about us on this website, but we hope more that you’ll learn about Jesus here. Join us!
November 28, 2021 – January 2, 2022
During Advent, we’ll be looking at part of the Book of Zechariah. That may be a bit off the beaten path for some of us, but this book deals a lot with the people of Israel returning from exile and assigned a particular task: preparing to rebuild the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem. Another way of thinking about preparing the temple could be preparing Him room: how do we prepare room for the holy presence of God?
What do those ancient words from Zechariah and the temple have to do with Jesus, with Christmas, with preparing Him room? Quite a lot, I think.
So if you’ve ever wondered what life might look like if we approached it as preparing a place for the living Lord in our hearts, or if life has felt uncentered for you because you sense it’s been too filled up by other things that feel secondary, join us this Advent, and may the good news that Christ is coming will renew and recenter you—and fill you with joy!
