A prayer meeting is held from 6:00-7:00 PM before each weekly service.
Many miracles have taken place during this special time of prayer and fasting. Prayer requests are taken and prayed over everyday. Everyone is invited to join us in prayer and fasting and to attend these outstanding services.

Knoxville Christian Center – 4 & 5 year olds

Our Giant VBS has been one of Knoxville’s largest, most exciting for 24 years! Our enrollment for 2011 was over 2,099 with over 900 decisions for Christ! Churchwide participation helps make this our #1 evangelist outreach. Over the last 20 years tens of thousands of children 4-18 yrs. old have been presented the Gospel in our Bible schools. Teams sweep Knoxville with our VBS Ice Cream Truck giving away free ice cream while inviting children to ride one of 19 buses during the week of Vacation Bible School. This is a ministry everyone can participate in – adults and children! To be part of this life-changing outreach contact our the KCC office at (865) 690-0855.
Our huge 4th of July BBQ Celebraton is one of our most popular annual events! The men of the church cook BBQ ribs and chicken all night and then serve hamburgers with all the fixings immediately following the 10:30 AM service on Sunday! The members of the church prepare homemade desserts and home cooked side dishes to go along with the wonderful BBQ! Tickets are free. There is a big church family day!
Knoxville Christian Center recognizes the need for Christian fellowship. One of the many ways we fellowship together is through our annual picnics held at Lenoir City Park two Sundays in July. Exciting boat rides are available from 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM. We have a short service and picnic at 5:00 PM. After the picnic a churchwide volleyball tournament between our different ministries is played until dark! Everyone comes and brings plenty of picnic foods, desserts, lawn chairs and blankets.
One of our most fun family events every July is our Homemade Ice Cream Social! Members bring over 30 freezers filled with their own recipes of delicious homemade ice cream and compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place! Winners win bragging rights and money from Pastor Barry! This is a great time of fellowship. Plan to be with us at KCC’s sweetest event of the year.
121 Youth has an annual churchwide 2 day garage sale in July. Hundreds of quality items are donated by members of KCC to be sold to raise money for our 121 Youth to go to camp.

KCC holds our annual cookout following our evening services. We have something for every member of the family: hamburgers, hotdogs, a 40ft. high rock climbing wall, inflatable slides and a volleyball tournament!
Bring your children for an exciting time of fun, games, dancing and treats on October 31st! There is always a costume contest, glow party with black lights, glow sticks, kid dances, bouncy houses, food and lots of safe fun for the kids. Fun for the whole family!
Only 28 people were present at Knoxville Christian Center’s first service in 1980 at the Ramada Inn. Today Knoxville Christian Center, a multi million dollar facility with a 2,000 seat auditorium, sits on 16 acres. Multitudes have been reached with the Gospel through our outreach ministries since that first service. We celebrate all the wonderful things the Lord has done for and through this ministry on our Anniversary Sunday with high energy contemporary Praise & Worship testimonies and a moving visual presentation of the history of the church.
Immediately following our 10:30 AM service, hundreds of people get in line to fill their plates with a delicious Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings and heavenly homemade desserts!
