Knox’s Inviting Community


We need to hear the first word of Knox’ mission statement, “inviting,” as a verb. We want Knox to be “inviting” like a warm hearth on a chilly day; but more importantly, we want it to be “inviting” in that people are actively inviting others to participate in it. In recent Knox Outreach Committee meetings, we have considered ways in which the whole congregation can be engaged in inviting. To meet Knox’s audacious objective of having 100 new visitors by Christmas, with 30 of them in small groups by Easter, all the saints must be equipped to invite—using postcards about upcoming events as conversation-starters, chatting up new people on Sunday mornings, talking and about what they love about Knox, sharing how Knox ministries have fostered their spiritual formation.
