Connected – My Life in the Church

Beginning in October, several small groups will begin studying Connected: My Life in the Church.

This bible study by Thom Rainer takes a look at the book of Ephesians and explores what it means to be connected to each other in the church. We are the family of God, and my prayer is that this study helps us cultivate an even greater sense of family and community. Read this excerpt from the introduction to learn more about the study.

Unfortunately, most Christians have developed a faulty view of what it means to be a  church member. Many of us talk about our church in terms of what we get out of it. This consumer mentality focuses on the perks we gain from the church, which makes church membership sound more like club membership.

In reality, being part of the body of Christ means so much more.

The Book of Ephesians helps us see the true benefits that come from our connections to Christ and His Church. Within this study we’ll discover six ways that church members are connected: connected in Christ, connected in unity, connected in growth, connected through words, connected in service, and connected through prayer.

During this study you’ll discover that, through Christ, we are all truly connected in a way that lasts not just for a lifetime, but for all eternity.

Multiple groups will meet at different times  (both at the church and in home groups) during the week to watch a short video (6-7 minutes), read scripture, and discuss questions together. Each session will last about 1-1½ hours.

Group locations, dates, times and sign up sheets will be made available during the month of September.

Wonderful Wednesday’s at First Church

First Church of New Knoxville invites your family to join us for Wonderful Wednesdays!   

Each Wednesday evening from March 13 to April 10

What are Wonderful Wednesdays ?

Life is busy – homework, sports practices, dinner, etc….  it all vies for our time.  Wonderful Wednesday is a way for the whole family to spend time together one day a week during Lent and not have to worry about any of those things.

Our volunteers walk with the children directly from NK School to First Church of New Knoxville where they get a snack and a chance to burn off some energy with games and fun.  Then it’s over to the church to get homework done with the guidance of our homework helpers, crafts and some music.

At 5:45 pm parents and the entire community are invited to join us for dinner and a short devotional.  This is a community outreach program – everyone is invited whether you have a child attending or you would just like to join us for dinner.

By 7:00 pm you have the rest of the evening to spend together as a family.  Homework and dinner are done!

Your child does NOT have to attend NK school to participate!  You may drop them off after school for the program also.  Click the link below to download the registration form for your student and return it to First Church of New Knoxville, PO Box 339, New Knoxville or scan and email it to firstchurchnk@nktleco.net

Wonderful Wednesday Registration 2019

Registration forms are for the after school portion only.  If you’re joining us for dinner you just need to show up hungry!
