General Info

John Knox Presbyterian Church
is a family-oriented church that's just celebrated their 55th anniversary!
We are a friendly congregation that welcomes new faces.
Our Sunday service, at 9:30 a.m., is Biblically-based and features both
traditional and contemporary music. There's Sunday School for kids and teens
with nursery care for little ones. After worship, we have a fellowship hour that offers
coffee, juice and a time to meet and connect with others.

Our mission is to know and honor God and follow the Son
while loving and serving others.
