Missions

The people of Knox are actively engaged in our local, regional and global communities through our own Knox Justice Teams and by partnering with other organizations that share our Mission Committee’s vision:

Mobilizing disciples to serve, advocate, and care for people within our local community and the world.

Turning reflection into action
Knox offers many opportunities for study and reflection that lead to internal transformation. We also believe strongly that internal transformation should lead to external action. Our justice teams are engaged in service, advocacy and support for issues that affect people in our local community. We’re also intentional about exploring the ways that each of these areas intersects with the others: how housing is an issue of sustainability, immigration and race, as just one example.

 

Racial Justice Team

This ministry seeks to make the ongoing internal and external transformative work of racial justice an essential part of the Knox DNA. The RJT is interested in exploring ways to apply community organizing techniques to mobilize our own congregation toward increased self-reflection and action in the world.

Immigration Justice Team

This ministry team seeks to build community with our undocumented sisters and brothers in the greater Pasadena area. Through these relationships, we aim to listen, learn, grow, and collaborate in actions that show God’s love to those who are on the margins and considered strangers. We partner with the Matthew 25 network and Iglesia del Pacto Church in Eagle Rock. We meet the second Tuesday of the month.
