Attend a Gathering
Worship is at the very heart of who we are: it is our response to God; our opportunity to gather in song and sermon; our privilege to find faith, hope, and love at the feet of God. First Baptist Knoxville offers three distinct worship opportunities that help us live out a heart of worship in a way that speaks to the deepest parts of our souls.
We begin our Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. in our First Community Worship Service, which meets in Trentham Hall. Smaller and more contemporary than the 11:00 a.m. service, it is intentionally intimate. Its music is led by our Praise Team composed of vocalists and musicians from across the life of our church.
First Baptist Knoxville was one of the first churches in Baptist life to offer worship opportunities for the deaf community. While its numbers were larger in previous years, it remains an important worshiping body within our church family. The Deaf Worship Service meets Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. in the Fred Brown Chapel on the second floor below the Sanctuary.
Our largest worship opportunity is our 11:00 a.m. Worship Service. It is a vibrant, traditional service that is televised and live-streamed each week. This worship expression includes a robed choir, a 56-rank Schantz pipe organ, and a Steinway piano. It is shaped by traditional music that speaks across time, but also enjoys freedom in form. You will find each week’s service to be a unique worship experience designed to speak with power and authenticity on our focal Scripture passage.
We invite you to choose the worship service that best speaks to your heart.
