Welcome to John Knox Presbyterian Church
Welcome home, children of God!
Our faith celebrates the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
John Knox is a place where anyone can experience and share the love of God, the peace of Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
We are a faith community that values your thoughts and questions. Come as you are today and grow with us in faith and discipleship. We welcome all to the Lord’s table for Holy Communion, which is usually celebrated monthly.
We invite you to stay for fellowship after worship, where refreshments are served and friendships are made and nurtured.
“Praise the mount of God’s unchanging love. . . ” This lyric represents Peter’s mountaintop faith moment. It speaks to spiritual euphoria and feeling the closeness of God. In this story, Peter proclaims who Jesus is. He speaks with conviction. Peter claims his faith. If you had to speak your faith in one sentence or phrase, what would you say? When we have the courage to say, “This, I believe…” then that conviction has a ripple effect on others. When life gets rocky, we lean on mountain top moments and our deepest convictions to see us through. | @sanctifiedart
