What can I say? We have been doing “church” for years. Jesus called it ‘where two or more are gathered in his name.’ So yeah. That’s what we have been doing. But then came the call to start something on Sunday. And it just feels— different.
Call it cultural perceptions. Call it fear of man. Whatever it is, God is asking us for radical trust that this is His dream. New Wine Church is His idea.
We want to foster a place where the presence of God is the most important thing. We believe in a community that functioned like Paul’s gatherings. A place where deep hearted believers can come to celebrate God, to be fed, to grow in their gifting, and, a place where the unsaved are drawn into the family.
How? The power and presence of God.
So what to expect. A community with opportunities to engage with each other. Worship times where we expect to encounter the Holy Spirit. And teaching that is fresh manna.
Here is mine and Chuck’s heart. We know God is laying out a table of truth, grace, transformation, power. We are inviting anyone who as hungry as we are to join us for more.
First meeting is January 26 at The Empty Cup located on Executive Park Drive.
9:15-10:00 Coffee and Community
10:00 -11:30 Worship, Teaching and Prayer
Soooo. Nothing like a little stumble to keep you humble. In my thrill of making announcements I missed one little glaring detail. I am not available on many Mondays.
So here is the UPDATED new announcement. And I am still super thrilled to get to be with God’s women.
I really feel like God is calling His women to an awakening. So many I talk to are really frayed, dried out or tied up in knots. He is wanting us to come sit in His presence for a deep breath, a new perspective, a safe place to heal. He wants us to come into the deeper waters for life.
“I Need More…” is a new class that begins September 16 through November. We will meet every other TUESDAY night at Greenbrier Club House, from 6:30-8:30. The address is 1505 Greenbrier Ridge Way, Knoxville, TN 37909. Very convenient at the Papermill exit off I-40.
What you can expect: soaking worship, the presence of the Lord, other hungry women who want more of God, and real life topics. It’s for women who have that yearn in their gut for something better, deeper; for women have gone numb; for women who need some freedom finally; for women who are ready to go to the next level.
Please pray with me that the women who are hungry will come, and thank God with me that He will feed those who do.
