High School

Go and Serve
Every summer, the youth of Knox load into vans and head out for a week-long service project somewhere in the Midwest, along with an army of adults and young adults. The location changes, along with the work, from Sisseton South Dakota to Alma Michigan, but the heart of the week remains the same: to be the hands and feet of Christ in service to the community in a time of need. Registration for 2021 is open! Click here for more details, and to register!

Wednesday Night Fellowship
Every Wednesday night during the school year, all High School students are invited to gather in the basement from 6:30-7:30pm. This hour of fellowship includes large and small group discussions, games, activities, worship, prayer, and missions.
Check the calendar for dates and times.

Sunday Night Bible Study
Sunday night from 7 to 8:00 pm, all high school students are invited to the basement for an hour and a half of worship, conversation, and study of the Scriptures. At the beginning of the year, the high schoolers create a list of topics that become the basis of discussion throughout the year.
Check the calendar for dates and times.

Special Events
Throughout the year we have a number of special events. These range from bonfires to Late Nights, and High Ropes Courses to Broom Hockey. Most of these events require registration, which is available on the Knox Calendar.

Registration now open for Spring Retreat 2021! Click here to register. We will be surveillance testing for Covid prior to leaving. Please plan to be available on Friday, May 14, in the early afternoon, for that brief testing. 

Young Adult

Open to all 20 somethings.

Fellowship Group
Every Monday evening, from 7-8pm central, college-aged young adults gather for Bible Study via zoom. Any young adults are welcome to join us! Reach out to Darin for the zoom link, or, if you know other young adults, you can ask them for the link too.

Winter Mission Trip
Each winter, the Young Adults of Knox are invited on a week-long mission trip, during the week following Christmas. For the past two years, the Young Adults of Knox have traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to work with SBP (a long-term disaster recovery organization) helping rebuild home destroyed by Hurricane Maria. We were not able to travel this past winter, due to COVID, but planning is underway for our 2021/2022 trip! Registration for this trip is typically in August.

Go and Serve
Young adults (who graduated at least 2 years prior) are invited to attend the Knox Go and Serve at a reduced rate! During the Go and Serve week, Young Adults take on more responsibility for leadership and are a vital component to creating a meaningful experience for the high school students who attend. Click here for more info, and to register!

Summer Events
Summer is a time for reconnecting with friends, and Knox is here to help. During the summer Knox will host a series of Sunday evening events for young adults. In 2019, we joined together at Gardner Park for pick-up softball games, culminating in an exhibition game, Young Adults vs Adults which ended in a 7-7 tie. Summer 2021 will include pick-up volleyball games! Contact , or keep an eye on the Knox Calendar, for specific dates and times.

Message from the Team

Thank you for entrusting your children to us. It was Jesus who first welcomed children, setting them as an example for all believers, and we have made ministering to children central to the work of our church. We believe and practice what is said in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We look forward to working with your children throughout their years here at Knox.
