Adult Ministries

“Discipleship is about how we live; not just the decisions we make, not just the things we believe, but a state of being.” 

-Rowan Williams, Being Disciples


As adults, we are still growing in our faith. Our ministries for adults aim to provide opportunities for encouraging growth by bringing people in similar life stages together and by building bridges so that we can learn from others who are in a different season of life. We have two different kinds of small groups: Connection Groups and Covenant Groups. We also plan classes and retreats for more in-depth reflection on a particular topic. Check out this page for updates about future classes, retreats, and group meetings.

Covenant Groups

Covenant groups are groups of 8 to 10 adults who meet in each others’ homes or at Knox for fellowship, study, prayer, and service. Covenant groups commit to meeting bi-weekly or monthly for at least nine months. Many of the groups are inter-generational. If you are interested in joining a covenant group contact Jarrod Phipps to help coordinate which group might be the best fit for you.



Women’s Spiritual Disciplines Group

Do your daily rhythm, routines and habits include the activities that support and reflect a God-centered life? Come learn about the spiritual disciplines and begin to live these practices together in community as we grow deeper in our daily walk with God. The women of Knox are invited to a nine-week women’s small group beginning on Monday, September 30. The group will meet at the home of Angela Mead from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Monday evenings, 3145 Brandon St., Pasadena, CA 91107. For more information contact Angela at
