Choosing a church to attend can be like picking out a restaurant. Questions like “Which one has the best service?” “Which one is best for my kids?” and “Which one will feed me the best?” seem to be what gets asked the most. Oh yeah, and “Which one will be the cheapest?” probably factors in there, too
But those questions only get asked by people who like going to restaurants already. Or in this case, people who like going to church already. The question that gets asked by people who don’t already go to church is much different:
“Why in the world should I?!”
And I believe that’s how the already-convinced should choose a church. By answering that question with another question of their own: “If I go to this church, how will I play a role in changing the lives of those around me and seeing them become part of the Church, so they can then play a role in even more lives being changed!?”
It is for that very reason that OneLife has adopted this vision of having multiple locations in communities across Knox County and ultimately East Tennessee. We want to see OneLifers connect to people in their own communities where they live, work, and play. We believe you can make the greatest difference at home. So why drive 30 minutes to church when your biggest influence is right across the street?
We are taking our first step in making this happen with the opening of OneLife Halls on August 19. And that is why we are encouraging any current OneLifers who live in Fountain City, Halls, Corryton, Maynardville, or other communities northeast of Knoxville to plug in at the new location. Because we believe strongly that it will help you become even more effective at reaching the people in your very own community.
If that’s you and you’re ready to be connected to OneLife closer to your own community, we want to hear from you! Go here and fill out the form to let us know that you will be attending OneLife Halls on August 19 and beyond, and making a huge difference in the lives of those around you! www.onelifeknox.com/halls And if you’re staying at the Powell location, get ready to join us in reaching Powell – and the rest of Knoxville – like never before.
The best is yet to come!
