KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A local church is giving their entire Easter offering to help homeless people in East Tennessee.

"Our vision is basically to connect the disconnected," said Peeples.

"He makes jokes and helps everyone like all ages understand what he is talking about," said church member Hailey Raschke.

The Point's services are held in a local movie theater.

"You got cup holders. You bring your food in. That's why we wanted to do it here. We really want to connect with people who didn't go to church," said Peeples.

For kids, church couldn't be any more fun.

"This is like taking Psalms and turning it into music I would like to listen to," said 12-year-old Elijah Farmer.

And what made Easter service even more meaningful was the offering.

"This morning as you give, you will be giving to KARM helping to feed people in need," said Peeples.

The Point will donate its entire Easter offering to help feed 4,000 homeless people in our area.

"There are so many people in the our area that need help so I think it's wonderful," said Logsdon.

In less than two years, The Point has more than doubled its congregation by teaching the Bible in a laid back and tech savvy way.

"You can text [your questions] in. It's anonymous you know he will answer it in front of everybody," said Jessica Leffel.

"Some people are afraid to talk to you, ask you and why not your supposed to have questions that's what faith is about," said Peeples.

The Point meets at Regal Cinema at the West Town Mall every Sunday at 9 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.
