Missions & Outreach PDF Print E-mail

Missions & Outreach are important to the life of John Knox. We recognize there are many local, regional and global needs, so we strive to be strategic in addressing as many needs as possible.

Outreach opportunities

 

Every year, we are proud to send out an Adult Mission team over Spring Break with a large variety of locations and tasks. In the past, we have done Disaster Relief in the Gulf, building projects in Mexico, and a mission to Costa Rica. Additionally, we have sent Youth Mission teams several needy locations across the US.

 

The vibrant, servant-hearted nature of our church is reflected in the amount of local outreach we do every year. Check out the current status of our local outreach opportunities below:

Green Team

Habitat For Humanity

Our Spring Habitat work days are TBD. These projects generally go from 9am-5pm on a Saturday.  For more information, contact the church office or speak to Ted Cowan

Heifer Project

After visiting Heifer Ranch a few years ago, we were so excited to once again roll out the Heifer "Fill the Ark" project in February 2013. Altogether, we raised over $2,500...including over $500 from our children in the CDC! This was an amazing project and we are so thankful to everyone who participated! Stay tuned...2015 isn't too far away...

Malawi Partnership

We are working alongside PC(USA) efforts to provide clean water in Malawi. By raising funds for these projects, we are able to offer much needed assistance to our African brothers and sisters. To find out more about the PC(USA) efforts in Malawi, click here
