Men, did you know?

  • Over the last 4 years we have assisted more than 100 people by providing (and praying over) beds and household necessities, as well as helping families move as they transition from homeless shelters to permanent housing.
  • Knox men regularly conduct work days to provide services including building storage, painting, maintenance, and facility updates.  Primary beneficiaries include Hesed House / TLC and Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans.
  • Knox has mentorship opportunities including education and skills training.
  • Daybreakers - 30+ men meet bright and early each Thursday morning at 6 am to study God’s word and to discuss and debate highly relevant topics from a man’s perspective.
  • There are dozens of ways for men of all ages to get connected and involved with men’s ministry at Knox.  New programs, service, and fellowship opportunities are coming throughout 2017, so now is the perfect time to plug in and be fulfilled!

Next event: Men's Breakfast

The next Mankind event is a breakfast on April 14, including a presentation by Knox’s own author, Lorne Pollard, speaking on “First People: Stories of Indigenous Nations of North America.” Lorne will enlighten us with stories of the descendants of three distinct migrations, from Siberia, (discovered via DNA analysis) starting about 16,000 BCE, (newer discoveries suggest possibly 28,000 BCE) who took advantageous of warming events to migrate to North America and then to South America. Think about those dates in the context of the story of Abraham in our Old Testament.
