We are pleased to share with you the latest information on the life, mission and ministry of Knox. Check out what's happening at your church. Knox Talks New Edition: Click Here
Since 1855 Knox, Milton has provided a continuous witness to Jesus Christ in our community. This rich heritage has never been more important or evident to us than when we consider the vast change that's ongoing in our community. As many of you may remember in 2010 Knox was faced with a difficult decision when our historic sanctuary was declared unsafe for occupancy. At that time we wrestled with our future, our role in the shaping of the town's character, and our commitment to our beliefs. After considerable prayer, discussion, and planning the stalwart Presbyterian witness remains on Main Street with a renewed commitment to evangelism. That is the sharing of our faith in mission, ministry and service.
Some of the reasons behind staying in the core of town centered around the kind of ministry we began to feel called to provide. Knox believes her witness is providing a "bridge" between the historic context of our town and the emerging city-scape that we are experiencing. We sincerely believe we are equipped to assist in this transition, our building is a parable or metaphor for such a dramatic change. The front facade of our beautiful architecture was designed by an English architect and boldly faces Main Street declaring the sound witness that has been in place since 1890. However, we are blessed to have a secondary entrance to our facility which faces Mary Street (presently the rear of the church). This facade boldly faces the new Town Hall and offers the opportunity to welcome Miltonians with a message that is timeless, yet shaped to meet the communication needs of the present generation. In the middle of these two entrances is our "meeting place," here we find the opportunity for multi-generational faith events, multi-cultural encounters, and multi-faceted outreach. Being in the core of Milton makes our accessibility a key factor.
In describing this ministry we find the declaration in Hebrews 13:8 to be our clarion call, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever."
We gather for worship at 10:30 each Sunday and provide a full family oriented service including a nursery for infants. We are a community church that embraces multi-generational worship engaging people in a multi-media experience of learning based on biblical teaching, witness, and involvement. We describe our "worship style" as blended meaning we provide elements for all ages, learning styles, and abilities. Worship is followed by a time of fellowship, refreshment and sharing. Faith development and spiritual foundations are formed through the Small Group Ministry established at Knox. In these groups relationships are further developed and the biblical model of discipleship is practiced.
Thanks to all those who assisted and participated this year!
Once again we contributed to keeping our environment cleaner by recycling those unwanted items ensuring they were properly handled while raising funds for our Restoration Team to assist in paying down the mortgage. A definite win, win.
Knox is providing a great program for the children and youth of our community from July 4-8th. Now we are gathering the materials for crafts, designing the decor for our welcome room, and preparing the leaders for the VBS launch... Waxing our surfboards and getting ready to "hang-10" with all the great kids that have signed up this year! It's only a few short weeks away now.
The Chancel Choir has done a great service supporting worship and leading the congregation in praise throughout the year. Wednesday, June 22nd they held their season wrap up Pot Luck Dinner at the church with a grand time of fellowship. Those in attendance enjoyed wonderful salads, main course, deserts and good fellowship!
If you've been thinking you'd like to sing and join the joy of praising the Lord with this group, watch for an invitation this fall when we start into our next season of worship planning together.
