Royal people. Momentous Purpose. We are here and now “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14).

Esther’s life was riveting. God’s love for her was amazing. God’s work through her was powerful. Esther was a royal woman who served a momentous purpose. We serve a momentous purpose too! Like Esther, our lives are riveting because of God’s amazing love and God’s powerful work. We are his royal people prepared, placed, and serving Here and Now for such a time as this.

A few COVID thoughts:

At this time there is no plan to request proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests. Also, we do not plan to require masks. HOWEVER, we will follow any requirements that the University of Tennessee puts into place. And we will mirror the love of Jesus with our attitudes and actions toward each other.
