Worship

“The chief end of humanity is to glorify God and enjoy God forever.”

-Westminster Catechism (language adapted)

 

Our worship services take place Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and  5:00 p.m.

Knox’s morning worship is best described as blended. We blend musical forms, with praise songs led by the Knox band alongside traditional hymns and classical sacred music led by the organ. You will find more formal prayers alongside more spontaneous expressions of faith. We are blessed with a number of visual, dramatic, and lyrical artists in our community, and we blend their work into our liturgy and sanctuary space. You’ll find art featured on the decorations in the Sanctuary, displayed on the bulletin or screen, incorporated into drama, and an integral part of the prayers we pray. Following the children’s sermon, which takes place about 20 minutes into the service, children and youth head from the sanctuary to Sunday School classes in our Atrium and Northside House.  Nursery care is available for the entire service.

Knox’s evening worship is best described as an informal, interactive, and contemporary. Music is led by the Knox band, and the service often includes testimonies, interviews with individuals about their discipleship journey, and the chance to reflect on the scripture reading and message through art and discussion. The service is designed to be family-friendly, and children and youth are invited to remain in worship for the whole service, with nursery care available for the youngest (4 years old and younger).

Our hope for both worship services is to create a space were people are free to glorify God creatively connecting their heads, hearts, and hands, and led by the Holy Spirit. Knox is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). We embrace the heritage of our Reformed tradition, striving for worship that is not only thoroughly grounded in scripture, but thoughtful, creative, heart-felt, and intergenerational.
