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.

 

Connection Groups

Our Connection Groups are moving online. We will post gatherings on the events page for the groups.

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 Pastor Ally.

Quarterly Groups

Dialogues on: Race

A 7-week group co-led by Pastor Ally and Jess Wong. The group meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm starting September 23.  This group will build skills to engage in dialogue and discuss race, white privilege, and systemic racism. Contact Pastor Ally at ally@knoxpasadena.org for the Zoom link.

Compassion Camp 

For four weeks in September, an intergenerational group will meet on Sunday evenings from 6 to 7 pm to explore the Compassion Camp materials by Illustrated Ministry. We hope you will join us from your kitchen table for a prayer practice, activity, and Scripture reading. Contact Pastor Ally at ally@knoxpasadena.org for the Zoom link.
