Christian Education at John Knox is a mission to "KNOW, GROW, and SHOW God's love."
(Christian Education) is held during the school year at 9:15 am.
For the youth the curriculum involves hands-on activities
to help the children learn Bible stories.
We have two classes K-3rd grade and 4th-8th grade
In March the children are dividing their time between Sunday School lessons and learning to play the newly gifted Choir Chimes to present a special musical treat this Easter season. Regular full-length lessons will resume after Easter.
Conversations Before Church
Is recommended for age 15 and up, and is offered during the school year on a variety of topics. Class is open to everyone and is held in a warm inviting atmosphere. Class members are given the choice to participate verbally or to participate by simply listening and absorbing.
Class meets at 9:15 am Sundays
We will be using Lovers and Fools, the 2018 Lent Devotional from the Stillspeaking Writers’ Group. Their motto, “Hearing God where you live (and other surprising places),” sets the tone for this book of daily devotions.
We will discuss the previous week’s devotions during Conversations Before Church. If you aren’t able to participate in that fellowship group, you are welcome to purchase a book and follow the devotions yourself. Perhaps you would enjoy forming your own group with those who live with or near you, or with fellow bell ringers for conversations during the breaks in rehearsals.
Women's Fellowship meet the third Tuesday of each month, at 2:00 pm, in the Social Hall.
Our program is new this year: “Cloud of Witnesses, The Community of Christ in Hebrew.” This Bible study was developed by authors from Presbyterian Women and their magazine “Horizon”, a booklet guide will be available for each woman attending the meetings.
Coffee, tea, and goodies encourage our fellowship, at each meeting. Any questions, please contact Shirley Bond 503-390-8452.
Everyone is welcome to join us or simply listen as we prepare music to honor God during worship. Opportunities also exist for special music such as solos, small groups and instrumental offerings. The choir takes a break during the summer. Our Music Director is Anna Robinson, who is also the director of Salem Community Chorus and a music teacher in the Salem-Keizer School District.
