Each week our church meets on Sunday morning, but throughout the week we scatter around East Tennessee to live out the gospel. So, how does a church our size develop community with each other?
Small groups—or, as well call them—community groups are the “heart and soul” of our church. They are where big church becomes small. We know that these small, intimate communities are where true, lasting relationships form. Every other week, these community groups meet all around Knoxville and into other parts of our area. These gatherings are time for prayer, encouragement, and relationship-building. Even though our church building is in Knoxville, we have members travel from miles away, so it is important to have these localized small groups of believers.
Ask any member of our church — these groups become family. They walk through times of loss, times of need and times of joy. They display the love of Christ by loving each other. In His kindness, the Lord has blessed our church with these groups, and it is our desire for every member to experience the Christ-exalting relationships they provide.

Note: Our Community Groups meet on various nights of the week and at different times. Below is a list of all the Community Groups. If you plan to visit, you can call the Community Group leader for location, directions and to confirm that they are meeting. If you have any trouble or have other questions, contact the church office, by email or by phone 865-694-4356.
