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. Scholarships are available for those facing financial hardships - please do not allow costs to prevent you from attending. Contact Darin for assistance with scholarships. Additionally, only a 50 dollar deposit is required at the time of registration. Check the calendar for date and location.

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.

Young Adult

Open to all post-high schoolers through their 20's.

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. This runs September through May.

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. Our 2021-22 trip is tentatively scheduled for December 27-31, so save the date! We will be headed over to Camp Restore, in Detroit, to further the work that began with this past Go and Serve!

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. Check the calendar for date and location.

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.
