Our Building
Journey

Welcome! This is an active, ongoing timeline of our journey to our new church home. Here you will find updates, pictures, and videos of the progress. Thank you for joining us on this journey. If you would like to come alongside and support what the Lord is doing through our church body, please consider joining us in prayer first and foremost, and also in finances. Follow the link to make a tax-deductible donation to our building renovation fund. 

 

It brings us joy and strengthens our faith to be reminded of all the Lord has done, and we pray it will encourage you as well.

The latest progress

New framing is up in the sanctuary and you can start to get a feel for the space now! We also have a new set of stairs leading us down to the Fellowship Hall and more classrooms.

Yard Sale Fundraiser

The Yard Sale fundraiser was a big success! Not only did we raise funds for our building renovations, but the event itself was a huge community builder -- It was great to meet so many people from our local community! Thank you for your generous donations, support, and your time volunteering! In total, we raised $3,100 towards the building renovations.

Our Future Home

This was an exciting and emotional day -- Our new sign was installed at the church property sharing the news of our future home site! We are extremely thankful to Nancy Parrott and Parrott Printing for this gift!

So much progress!

The construction crew (and our guys!) have gotten after it. There's been a lot happening around the church property in the last few weeks. The chimney is demoed, and we are pumped to see some sub-floor laid, framing go up, and a new (much higher) roof!!

Building Fund Update

Pastor Jake gave an update on the building plans. Artistic renderings, finalized floor plans, and the total projected cost for the project were presented to the church body. We are praying and believing for the funds to come in!

An unexpected first service

The week following the Lord's Chapel's last service, Knoxville saw a record-breaking snowfall. Northshore Elementary would not allow us to meet because of the parking lot conditions. So we gathered for the first time at our new (not yet renovated) building. We had a special time of corporate prayer, worship, and communion. As a church body--those who could get out in the snow!--we dedicated the church building to the Lord. It was a wonderful start to a new year and a new journey.

Celebrating The Legacy

The Lord's Chapel held their last service. That evening there was a beautiful celebration service honoring all of the pastors and all of the years of ministry at that location.

Clean-out begins

Clean-out begins at the church and the church house. Several church members volunteered to clean up and haul off trash, begin sorting for a church yard sale, and clean up our soon-to-be church offices.

BBQ and Baptisms

After the church building and property were given, we were also presented with an opportunity to purchase the house and property next door. So we came together for a one-time sacrificial offering (and our first baptism and baby dedications on the property!) and raised enough to pay cash for the property next door! Praise the Lord!
