BE THE CHURCH

A Place to Belong,
A Place to Become

At Knox Church, we welcome you to a journey of faith and service. We talk about belonging and becoming – in Christ. The first step is to pursue a personal relationship with God through Christ; then to grow as a follower of Jesus, led by the Holy Spirit. Doing this with others who are on the journey will bring friendship, compassion, kindness and support, no matter where you are on your faith journey. Through the various ministries at KPC, you will find a place to belong, a place to become the person God created you to be and a place where you make a difference for good in this life. We have opportunities to worship – to learn – to have fun -and to serve! Check them out by scrolling down – and getting involved!

 

 

WORSHIP AT KPC….

We gather at 9.30 a.m. Sunday mornings for a blended style of worship. We welcome all ages to participate, as we pray, hear God’s Word proclaimed, and sing both old hymns and gospel songs, and new contemporary music.  We focus on the scriptures throughout our worship, and have a very ‘participatory’ service.

Children enjoy KID CONNECTION during the second part of the service, learning from the Bible in ways that engage them, while older youth and adults remain in the sanctuary for the message.  Pastor Chris preaches from the Bible in a way that helps make the scriptures come alive, and make a difference in daily life.

Dress is casual, and you will be welcomed!

MISSION AND SERVICE AT KPC…

KPC is engaged in serving God as we serve our community and beyond. We are passionate about showing and sharing Jesus Christ to others.

 

GIVE WELL– PRAISE GOD! Our Mission Team were blessed as they traveled to Nicaragua in November, 2013! They drilled a well, and taught health and Bible truths to a small village.

 LOCAL MISSION AND MINISTRY

Locally, you’ll find us serving in community organizations, as coaches, volunteers and more. Through KPC, we serve Lambton Shores and the surrounding area through in-school mentoring, family supper night, Grief Share, Divorce Care, DC4K and Single & Parenting. “An Extra Place at the Table” ministry supports our local food bank year round. We assist individuals and families in need, provide Christmas dinner and gifts to several local families. Pastor Chris offers short term crisis, marriage and family and grief counselling, and helpful referrals for longer term care. With other churches in town, we offer a yearly Vacation Bible Camp that in 2016 reached over 180 children!

Each year we take on an extra mission project, alternating between Canadian and international opportunities in turn.

We also participate in Operation Christmas Child. In 2015, we collected 120 shoeboxes for OCC.

We have helped with a goat herd in Sudan, a new house in Nicagaragua, a water well in Malawi, motorbikes for rural pastors in Indonesia and various World Vision projects.

We have also had hands-on mission teams serve in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina, and in Tennessee after the devasting floods there. Clean up, construction, repair, and renovations have been offered by willing workers from KPC. We will be planning another mission trip in 2015!

 

Music & Drama

Worship that honours the Lord and encourages His people is important to us! We welcome the gifts of God’s people in music ministry, leading prayer and making stories come alive through drama. We appreciate technical and computer skills as worship involves use of power point and video clips, to provide a meaningful visual worship experience. Our music is a blend of the best of psalms singing, traditional hymns and gospel songs, and contemporary music with an eternal message. 

Marriage Preparation and Counseling

We value marriage at KPC, and ask couples to contact Pastor Chris regarding their wedding with enough lead time for important marriage preparation, not just wedding planning. Helping your marriage grow and thrive doesn’t just ‘happen’, so from time to time we offer group study and short term individual/couple counselling. Referrals and resources for marriage enrichment and help are freely offered

Prayer Team

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Knox Church is a body of believers who value prayer, and are committed to praye ministry. Each Sunday, during worship, we pray for the larger needs of the world as well as offer prayers for specific needs close to home and heart. We have a dedicated team of ‘Prayer Warriors’ who will pray for any special requests and needs. You can call us with your prayer needs, and we will lift you and the person or situation to the Lord. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
