OneLife’s Angel Trees
This year OneLife is continuing our partnership with the McNabb Center’s Dear Santa program as well as providing angel tree gifts for children on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana. The Angel Trees are up in the lobby so check them out after the service today! Gifts can be returned to your campus November 20-27.

OneLife Students #Friendsgiveback - Nov 16
On Wednesday, November 16th, OneLife Students will be out serving in the community for our annual #Friendsgiveback night. This night is designed to help our students see a need in the community, feel compassion, and take action - plus, they get to do it together with their small group! For more information or to make sure your student gets to be a part, simply write #Friendsgiveback on your Connection Card.

Jingle Jam, Nov 27 & Dec 4
Jingle Jam is a Christmas Party big enough for the whole family! It’s an interactive Christmas presentation for kids and parents that’s full of exciting music, fun characters, and a unique perspective of Christmas like you’ve never experienced before! Join us at 6pm on November 27 at the North Campus or December 4 at our East campus for this exciting night. And be sure to invite another family to join you. We can’t wait to see you there!

Christmas Parades are Coming!
This year, OneLife will participate in the Downtown Knoxville Parade on December 2 and the Powell Parade on December 3. This is an awesome way to represent our church in the community, plus, it’s a lot of fun! There are opportunities to help with float construction and decorating, as well as walking in the parade alongside our float and other OneLifers! Sign-ups are available now at, or you can write “Christmas Parades” on your Connection Card and we’ll send you the link to sign up.

Join a Volunteer Team
Did you know it takes over a hundred volunteers every week to make a service at OneLife happen at our campuses? So if you haven’t started volunteering, then it’s time to get on the team! From First Impressions & Security, to Kid City, to Production & Worship, to OneLife Students, weekday teams, and more - there’s plenty of opportunities for everyone to serve. Mark the Volunteering box on your Connection Card to get started!

If you’ve given your life to Jesus but haven’t gone public with your story through baptism then it’s time to take that step! Mark the baptism box on your Connection Card and we’ll help you get started.
