In two short months of living here, we were given this ginormous old historic church building in downtown-south Knoxville. God has been blowing our minds daily since living here. We didn't move with a single person. However, within the first month God formed a team of ten adults and eight children. One family moved all the way from Alaska to join us. I could go on and on about His goodness, and faithfulness since being here, but it would take hours of writing.
The church which currently meets here, decided to deed it over and merge with us. So our congregation has now doubled. That goes to say, we are not speeding up the timeframe of launch, just because we have a building. We are going to continue with our weekly small group, monthly vision nights, and Sunday small gatherings. But, over the course of the next few months we are going to start raising capital to completely renovate this bad boy from the inside out. As you can tell, it is in need of a beautiful facelift.
We are super thankful, so excited, and just can't help and marvel at all God is doing. Just yesterday we randomly found a $1200 HD projector screen unknown to us until we checked out, to be marked down 90%! God, is moving in this city, and His blessings are so huge we find our mouths dropping to the the floor most days.
Thanks for all who have been giving to the mission of loving the city of Knoxville, your generosity does not go unseen. We are looking for more partners to help make this vision a reality. Every bit of the money you give will go towards the remodeling of this facility. THANK YOU FOR PARTNERING WITH US in prayer and for all the sweet words of encouragement!
