Knox Young Adult “Boxing Day” Party
- Tuesday, December 26, 7-9 pm
Each year for the past several years, we have had a Christmas gathering for Knox Young Adults (college age and young professionals) on various days during the holidays, but starting this year, the party will be held on December 26th, the day after Christmas, which is called “Boxing Day” in many parts of the world. We hope you can come and reunite with your Knox friends for food, drink, games and fellowship. You will learn in a fun way at the party why December 26th is called Boxing Day!
- Location: The Dorr’s, 1505 Wedgefield Circle, Naperville, a few blocks north of NNHS. Map

Young Adult Weekly Fellowship
The Knox Young Adult group (graduated high school to early 30s) meets Monday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 pm (but drop in when you can) at Quigley’s restaurant in downtown Naperville on Jefferson Ave, one block east of Washington St. Park on the upper deck of the parking garage off Jefferson, and when you walk back down the ramp, Quigley’s is across the street to the right. Mondays are usually $5 angus hamburger night (yum!), but other items are also on the menu. We look forward to having you join us for food and fellowship. Contact Bruce at to be added to the weekly text update for this group that also includes invites to our special events.
Young Adult Mission Trip
In early January 2017, we traveled to Puerto Morelos, Mexico for the Amor Ministries Global Gathering Conference and House Build. Below are links to two videos from this trip.

For this year’s Young Adult Mission Trip, we are excited to be going to Belize, working with Praying Pelican Missions, living in a local church, running a VBS, and completing a construction project in the community (likely a house, bunk beds, or chicken coops). Belize is located just south of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, where we served last year, therefore, we are expecting the same great weather. We look forward to meeting the people in this diverse culture where many speak English, and serving for the week in an intentional Christian community. The trip is planned for 6 days, Sat Dec 30, and Thursday Jan 4.
Prayers for a successful mission trip and the financial support from the Knox community, friends and family are appreciated. Donations are accepted by check, cash or on-line.

Go & Serve Young Adult Leaders
For every Go & Serve high school mission trip in June, Young Adults serve integral leadership roles. These Young Adults serve on work teams, lead small groups and build mentor relationships with our high schoolers. Contact our Youth and Young Adult Leader, David Newby if you are interested in serving in this capacity. Young Adults must have been out of high school for at least two years.
