Our Upcoming Events
New Giving Platform
We are moving our giving platform to Breeze (operated by Tithely) which connects with our database. This will save us monthly fees and integrate giving and the database. It will give both you and us more flexibility. We’ll be sharing more as we go forward.
For all online or text2give donors, you will need to set-up your account on your first use of the new system. It’s fast and easy! Use the drop-down menus to choose General Fund or another fund and a one-time gift or recurring gift. If you tend to give weekly, twice a month, or monthly, consider setting up a recurring gift. Set it up one time and it’s done. Do it now or do it when you take care of your monthly finances.
The new online giving link is https://mcck.breezechms.com/give/online
The new Text2Give number is 865-509-9980
Recurring donors, please let us know that you have set-up your new account and we can stop your current recurring donation in Easy Tithe.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!

A Community of Faith
We come together from a rich variety of religious experiences and denominational backgrounds, seeking to:
Celebrate God manifested in every single person
Model Christ and share God’s immutable love
Be God’s hands, feet, and voice sharing the story of Love
We offer our experience and our love -- we share our stories and our journeys -- to encourage and uplift the transgendered, bisexual, gay and lesbian communities of Knoxville and the entire East Tennessee area. We welcome all to join us, regardless of denomination or background.
Communal memory takes shape when we share our stories. In those stories is our longing and yearning for peace, for love, for acceptance, for freedom, equality and justice. In those yearnings is a search for the truth of Spirit.
If you are looking for a spiritual home, come visit us here at Metropolitan Community Church at Knoxville and listen to the voice of the Holy speak to you through the voices of diversity, community, social justice and prayer. We welcome people of many beliefs and backgrounds into the holy space of worship, and pray that you will find justice and peace wherever Spirit leads you.
