Presbyterian Women

Are you new to Knox or have you been a long-time member of this church? Are you looking for something to do to help within the church, or to get to know Knox people better? If so, we would like to invite and welcome you to come to a Presbyterian Women's event.

Bible Studies

Knox Presbyterian Church is committed to God's Word. We encourage you to take time during the week to study the Bible; it helps us understand God's character, but more importantly, it’s the most powerful tool for shaping God-like character within us. 

Bible study brings depth to our journey with Christ. Our classes allow you to journey in faith with others who are seeking out Biblical truth and how it applies to everyday life. 

Some classes involve homework, while others do not. Classes are open for all who are interested, no matter what your previous experience is in studying the Bible. You can join a study at any time.


Circles at Knox are various groups of women who meet once per month, as they are able, to nourish their faith, each other, work on mission projects, perhaps do a Bible study and pray. We also donate a lot of our time and talent to the silent auction every fall. Circles are a good way to meet new people and become connected. Knox has several circles.

Women on Wednesdays - WOW

Whether you are a mom with young children or school-aged children, whether you are single, retired or somewhere in-between, Women On Wednesdays wants you...and your friends and neighbors!  This program is a Bible study for women, with childcare and activities for infants through Kindergarten.  WOW meets from 9:15 - 11:15 am with fellowship and refreshments, followed by large and small group discussions, DVD presentations and prayer.

Hearts of Hope: for Single Moms

We are excited to invite you to consider being part of a new small group at Knox Church! It is an 7-week nurturing experience for single mothers entitled Hearts of Hope. Hearts of Hope will meet on Wednesdays nights from 6:30 - 8:30 pm  Jan 10 through Feb 21, 2018. It includes dinner, fellowship and a Bible study entitled "Finding You Again."
We are single or formerly single moms who are seeking to encourage single women with children by sharing a meal, studying scripture, and learning together. We will prepare and provide dinner for you in one of our homes.

We hope this will be a special night out for you. Remembering the demands of being young single mothers ourselves, we want to serve you and encourage you through God's word and Christian fellowship. On the last week we will have a Celebration Night just for fun.

If you are interested in becoming part of this program, feel free to call Rev. Deb at 630-615-4306  or Karen Van Iten at 630-355-0284 or email her at  with any questions you have.
