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 foyer that opens into the sanctuary. You may also avoid all steps by entering through the glass door by the Memorial Garden. 

Ushers will greet you and provide a worship bulletin as you enter the church. The bulletin is like a script for the worship service, so you know what happens and when the congregation has a speaking part. We also have seating for those with mobility issues and strollers.

Dress code
WE DON'T HAVE ONE! Some of us wear t-shirts and jeans, some sport coats and dresses - and everything in between.

Our Music Director, Judy Warren, has over 20 years of experience with providing church music and choral direction. She brought back a part time choir in 2023.


Pastor Susan will preach on the scripture read by the liturgist (worship leader). Her sermons are designed to comfort and challenge us. Our worship service is recorded and is posted to our Facebook page (see link below) and is also available on our YouTube Channel:

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.
