“The chief end of humanity is to glorify God and enjoy God forever.”
Westminster Catechism, mid-seventeenth century, language adapted.
Knox gathers for worship every week on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am and then for a more informal evening service on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 5:00 pm. For the Sunday morning service, children stay through the children’s sermon (roughly 20 minutes into the service) and then head to Sunday School. Our nursery is open for the entire worship service for children three years old and younger. There is a nursing and infant room just off the Narthex in the Sanctuary as well. Youth remain in the service on the first Sunday of the month. Most other Sundays, youth are dismissed to Gathering after the children’s sermon.
Dress: People tend to dress on the casual side at Knox, though you will see some people dressed “business casual,” others in shorts or jeans, still others in a dress or suit and tie. It’s hard to go wrong at Knox in terms of what you wear.
Parking: For both the morning service and evening service you can enter our main parking lot from either Del Mar (just East of Hill avenue) or Cordova. There is also street parking available along Cordova and its side streets. Parking is limited on the First Sunday of the month due to the flea market across the street at PCC. Street parking is usually available off of Hill across from CalTech.
The Lord’s Table: We celebrate communion at Knox the first Sunday of each month.
Music: Knox endeavors to include and “blend” traditional and contemporary musical forms. Most Sundays you’ll hear a traditional pipe organ on some hymns, and other songs accompanied by a full band with guitars, mandolin, piano and percussion. Some Sundays you’ll hear a violin solo, other Sundays a duet or an a cappella anthem, and other Sundays a Bluegrass set.
Evening Worship: On the second and fourth Sundays of the month, Knox hosts a 5:00 pm Evening Worship Service. This informal, interactive, and family-friendly worship time will take place in the Knox sanctuary. Music will be led by our Worship Director, Elise Carver, and by volunteer musicians. The message offered by Pastor Matt will be youth and child-friendly, and based on the same scripture passage(s) as the morning’s service. All ages are welcome to this new early-evening adventure in Spirit-led worship at Knox. Nursery care will be available in the Atrium for kids four years old and younger.
