Knox Sunday Evening Service Update

Our 5 pm worship service has continued to meet weekly, following the same sermon series as the morning service but with a more informal and interactive format. We have been blessed to hear from and worship with a variety of different voices. In recent weeks we interviewed and prayed for Amy Marmol, Pastor Matt, and Pam King. These interviews have been a great way to get to know our church community better and to celebrate the work of God in peoples’ lives. We heard messages from Pastors Matt and Ally as well as guest preacher, Tommy Givens. We have often also included a time of small group discussion or a kid-friendly creative activity following the message. And we have been led in musical worship by Elise Carver, Josh and Amy Marmol, Amaya Givens, Ryan Thomas,¬†Jarrod and Kenzie Phipps,¬†Josh Yee, Anya Millard, and Sophia Jones. We’re so thankful for these gifts — and the willingness to share them — in our church body which have enabled and brought life to this 5 pm service.

Our number of attendees has remained between 20-40 people, which has prompted the Evening Task Force to talk more seriously about outreach and space. Last week, we held a special, unplugged worship service in the Northside House, and we enjoyed both the energy and the intimacy that space fostered. We will hold our worship service this week in the same location. Plan to stick around after the service for a pizza dinner.

We look forward to our upcoming evening services, which will feature guest preachers Marianne Meye Thompson and Pastor Pablo of Iglesia Del Pacto, as well as interviewees Brad King and Iglesia Del Pacto member Sondra. Please note that there is no evening service on Easter Sunday — we will see you at 10 am.

Thank you for joining us in prayer for this evening service as we continue to seek God’s direction and wisdom. Perhaps consider joining us or volunteering one week, even if you are a regular 10 am attender — we would love to have you.

Lindsay Anderson-Beck, Pastoral Intern
