What to expect in worship

We have parking spots designated for visitors as well as handicap parking. You may enter up the steps or the ramp to the narthex, the foyer that opens into the sanctuary. You may also avoid all steps by entering through the glass door in the Memorial Garden. 

Ushers will greet you in the narthex. You may pick up a bulletin on the narthex table. (Masks are required when Jefferson County is in the RED zone, otherwise, masks are optional for those fully vaccinated. Masks are available if you need one.) The bulletin is like a script for the worship service so you know what happens and when the congregation has a speaking part.

We welcome our new Music Director, Judy Warren, who will join us on January 29, 2023. We were so blessed to have had 4 talented guest musicians in the interim.


Pastor Susan will preach on the scripture read by the liturgist (worship leader). Her sermons are designed to comfort and challenge us.

We share the Lord's Supper on the first Sunday of the month and on Maundy Thursday. We offer gluten free options.

We pass the offering plates toward the end of the service. Not everyone puts a weekly offering in the plate; some people donate electronically, by mail, monthly, annually, or not at all. We have offering envelopes in the pews for your use.

About Us

Our members invite others to join our congregation. We want to broaden our efforts to put our faith into action. Members and visitors stay after worship to visit with one another. We enjoy getting to know visitors as much as connecting with long-time members. You will be warmly welcomed when you attend John Knox! We follow Jesus when we show hospitality to others.
