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

These groups meet once as frequently as once a week to once every other month. Connection groups are always open. They gather people with either similar interests on in similar life stages.

Brothers K

The men’s book circle meets every other month at each others’ homes to discuss a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. The book for the January 16 meeting is Brief Answers to the Big Questions by Stephen Hawking. The group will meet at a member’s home at 7:15 pm. Contact the church office for the address.

Lit Chicks

The women’s book circle meets every other month in the Northside House at Knox to discuss a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. The book for the January 23 meeting is Educated by Tara Westover. The group will meet at Knox’s Northside House at 7:15 pm.

The Table

A group for college and grad students, and young professionals both married and single without kids. Our next is event is a Friendsgiving on Monday, November 19. Contact the church office for more details.

Young Families

People of a Certain Age

A group at Knox for those of the Greatest and Boomer generations who are looking to deepen relationships with others of those generations in our community. Fall events coming soon.

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 who will help coordinate which group might be the best fit for you.
