Here at Calvary Knoxville we believe strongly in the Biblically grounded benefits of our intimate small group settings that we call 242 Kinships. In Acts 2:42 we see that the early church continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine (the Bible) and fellowship, the breaking of bread and in prayers. Much of the life of the early church revolved around intimate, God centered, Biblically grounded fellowship with one another. In spite of incredible reistance and unprecedented persecution, their oneness in Christ would prove to be an unstoppable force. Early in the book of Acts we are told that the church was in one accord and had all things in common. People actually began selling possessions in order that the church leaders would be able to help those in need as the Lord led. This church placed value in people, not possessions.
The mission at Calvary Knoxville is that everyone here is the best fed and most loved. As the Lord’s sheep we are to be fed the entire counsel of scripture and love our neighbor as ourselves. In fact, Jesus even said that the world will know that we are His disciples by the love we show one another. Our 242 Kinships are designed for exactly that purpose. With groups of 12 or less, we can build lasting, intimate friendships, grounded in God’s word, bathed in prayer, and loving one another with the love that Christ has so graciously given to us.
For your convenience we have 242 Kinships all over Knoxville and the surrounding areas, please contact the leaders for specific meeting times. We hope that you will visit one soon and be blessed in true fellowship with others.
