The 2.7 earthquake that shook eastern Knox County Saturday night was the talk of the town at Holston Baptist Church come Sunday morning. 

The church is located near the epicenter of the quake, so a large part of the congregation felt the rumbles.

Susie Finchum is a member at the church and says she didn't know what to think at first.

"All of a sudden I thought it thundered and I thought well you know I wasn't expecting a thunderstorm," Finchum said. "So the next thought that occurred to me, 'well, was it an earthquake?'"

She quickly turned to Facebook where her friends confirmed what she felt was, in fact, a small quake. Finchum also said when she first felt the shake, her mind turned to scripture.

"The Bible says that there will be earthquakes in diverse places in the end times and I thought, 'Well, here we are, this is a very diverse place,'" she said.

Ten-year-old Chloe Rouse chimed in to describe what she felt while she was laying in bed on Saturday.

"I'm kind of like, what is this right here, like seriously what's going on," she said.

Elezan Stair also felt the rumbles while she was writing Christmas cards on her couch.

"I jumped up and opened the door and then about that time everything stopped so I realized that it was probably an earthquake," Stair said.

Stair also said it was over so quick she wasn't really scared.
