Our faith celebrates the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ
John Knox is a place where anyone can experience and share the love of God, the peace of Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
We are a faith community that values your thoughts and questions. Come as you are today and grow with us in faith and discipleship. We welcome all to the Lord’s table for Holy Communion, which is usually celebrated monthly.
We invite you to stay for fellowship after worship, where refreshments are served and friendships are made and nurtured.

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL DISASTERS
Super Typhoon Mangkhut (local name “Ompong”) has put regions in the Philippines, China and neighboring areas in a state of crisis. Top priority is to provide immediate assistance to minimize loss of life and to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable are covered first.
Indonesian Tsunami On September 28, 2018 Central Sulawesi in Indonesia was hit by a 7.4 magnitude earthquake, which resulted in a tsunami and later a volcanic eruption. The death toll is more than 1,700 and as many as 62,600 persons are displaced. The dire situation is further compounded with the rainy season approaching with the anticipation of diseases, which are easily spread in shelters.
PDA is working through our partners in ACT Alliance & UCCP to provide emergency assistance. Priorities are minimizing loss of life and to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable are covered first.
Hurricanes Florence & Michael PDA has deployed National Response teams to affected presbyteries to meet with Presbyterian and community leadership to assist in coordinating relief efforts and mucking out homes and churches. After initial needs are addressed, PDA will remain—providing spiritual emotional care and Long Term Recovery to address unmet needs of those impacted.
