What is worship like at John Knox Presbyterian Church?
At a time when many churches divide their congregations by distinguishing between contemporary and traditional styles of worship, we at John Knox Presbyterian Church make no such distinction. We pride ourselves on maintaining our unity as we combine a variety of styles that enhance worship and glorify God. We believe all worship should be contemporary all worship should speak to 21st century Christians in ways that are meaningful. And, we believe, all worship should be traditional well grounded in the traditions of the historic Christian church. After all, we're not the first people to be Christian! We rely on a received faith that has been passed down through the ages. We have a healthy respect for the past, but we are not locked into old ways of doing things, including worship! Our worship at John Knox Presbyterian Church is a faithfully healthy mix of new and old. Our worship is an experiential event where both hearts and minds are spoken to and challenged. We sing both contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns every Sunday. We use a variety of instrumentation. We use technology (screen and projector) in faithful, non-gimmicky ways. We regularly utilize the gifts and talents of children and youth, as well as adults. We laugh and cry, hope and dream, as our worship leads us to share our common bond in Jesus Christ.


What do you have to offer children and youth?
John Knox Presbyterian Church loves Christian Education! We offer Sunday School Classes from womb to tomb! We have a PreSchool class, a Children's Ministry program (K-5th grade), and a great Youth Group for Jr High and High School students. For adults, we offer a one-room Sunday School class led by a variety of teachers, and we have many Small Groups that meet during Sunday morning that are easy to plug in to. We also offer a full Wednesday evening all-ages program called LOGOS (click here for more info).


What do Presbyterians believe about non-members participating in the Lord's Supper?
John Knox Presbyterian Church celebrates an Open Table. The Communion table is called The Lord's Table because we believe it is Jesus who is our host at the Lord's Supper. It is The Lord's Table, not a Presbyterian table or a John Knox table. All persons who profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are welcome at the Lord's Table. The Lord's Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month and at other special times.


What do I do if I'm interested in becoming a member?
Membership at John Knox Presbyterian Church may be established in one of three ways:

  • Transfer of Membership - We will write to the church where you are currently a member and request a transfer.
  • Reaffirmation of Faith - A public profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
  • Profession of Faith and Baptism - A profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior accompanied by Baptism (if you have never been baptized).

New member classes are offered once or twice a year in conjunction with membership and serve as an important part of becoming an educated member of the church.


Do I have to be Baptized to join the church?
Yes. Baptism is the way we enter the Church. If you have never been baptized then you will be joyously baptized when you join the church. However, Presbyterians do not re-baptize. If you have already been baptized, you are already a member of the Church Universal. We value and respect all Christian baptisms, for there is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:4-6)


How many members does John Knox Presbyterian Church have?
John Knox Presbyterian Church is a congregation of over 400 active members.


Do I have to give money to be a member?
No, you don't have to. However, as you grow in your faith and come to a greater sense of gratitude to God for all that you have and all that you are, you will want to give. To profess Jesus Christ as Lord is to submit yourself to His Lordship in the whole of life. Yes, Jesus has something to say about how we spend our money. Our money is not ours alone. It is a symbol of our labor and it is one way we are called to give back a portion of what the Lord has blessed us with. We are each called to give as we are able and to give out of a sense of gratitude. A tithe, 10% of one's income, is the Biblical starting point and serves as a faithful goal for many Christians. Remember, in the end, there are only three kinds of giving:
1) Grudge Giving says, I have to.
2) Duty Giving says, I ought to.
3) Thanksgiving says, I want to.


How may I talk with one of the pastors?
It's easy! Call the church office (918-742-5528) on weekdays between 8:30am and 4:30pm to schedule a time to meet with Dr. Jeff London or Rev. Kate Houge.
