Thank you for visiting our website. Now we would love to meet you in person!
John Knox Presbyterian Church has a long history, a promising future, and an exciting present. We invite you to browse through our website to learn a little more about who we are. Even more we invite you to come to a worship service, a class, or an event, and see for yourself what JKPC is all about. We are fully handicap accessible and have large print Bibles, Hymnals, and bulletins available upon request.
We are a warm and welcoming congregation, but no matter how friendly and welcoming a church may be, visiting any church for the first time can be a little intimidating. You may be wondering things like: What are the worship services like? Where do I sit? What is expected of me? Are my children welcome?
Here’s what you can expect:
As you enter our church you will be welcomed by greeters. Ushers will hand you a worship bulletin and will help you find a seat, if necessary. Sit wherever you like, there are no reserved seats! We won’t ask you to stand or wear a name tag or anything like that. We do pass a pad through each pew in order to record an attendance.
Our worship services are easy to follow by using the bulletin or projection screen, and each service lasts about an hour. Our services include scripture readings and prayers, the singing of songs (some traditional and others contemporary), and special music from a choir in our early service. We welcome all children in both services and also provide professional nursery care for infants and toddlers. Our pastor will share a sermon, and some Sundays communion will be served. In our church, communion is open and served to all who have faith in Jesus Christ.
An offering is received each Sunday. We don’t expect our guests to put anything in the offering plate, though you are certainly welcome to do so. Our members and regular attendees freely give to support our ministries. Here is how you can connect:

All children are welcome in the worship service however childcare is available. We would like to invite them to Nursery Island, a friendly, fun and upbeat environment designed just for them. Nursery Island is a secure environment and is available during all weekend gatherings. No need to fear, we will let you know if your child needs you at any point during the worship service! Our childcare employees are paid staff and are always excited to meet new children!
We look forward to meeting you!
So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.”
