Growing throughout our lives

Following Jesus, engaging society faithfully and justly, knowing and interpreting the Bible, loving self and others—we reach for these goals throughout our lives.

At Knollwood, faith formation opportunities stretch across the changing continuum of adulthood. Week by week, month by month, we gather in groups that meet together to nurture faith. Learn more about our varied and rich offerings:

Welcome Back

We are excited to welcome everyone back after the summer for a great new school year together!

Faith Formation Offerings Resume in Late August / Early September

At Knollwood, we have continued learning and growing in faith over the summer. But in late August and early September, our many programs and groups that support faith formation resume with new energy. Now's the time to find a Sunday School class, join a small group to support your spiritual growth, or connect with a missions and service effort. Or simply add Wednesday nights at church to your weekly rhythm! To explore options, see the links below and on our missions page.

Separate And Unequal: School Segregation in Modern Day America, An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones

October 10, 2019

October 10, 7:30-9 p.m., Kenneth R. Williams Auditorium, Winston-Salem State University

A coalition of community partners including Knollwood announces an evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones, nationally recognized author and recipient of a MacArthur Genius grant. Ms. Hannah-Jones covers racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine and has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created—and maintains— racial segregation in housing and schools. Her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. She is currently writing a book on school segregation called The Problem We All Live With.

Sunday morning Bible study

Each Sunday morning all around our church campus, groups of adults gather to study, converse, debate, pray, listen, and simply walk alongside one another in life and faith.

Some groups share a particular life stage; others are brought together by their approach to faith formation. All classes value mutual support and community.

Come find your place in one of our classes, from 9:45–10:45 a.m.

Especially for our senior adults

Our senior adult ministry provides older adults with opportunities for spiritual nurture, even as we recognize them as vital resources for service and programming. This ministry includes intergenerational activities, fellowship and bonding, service, and education.

A Senior Adult Ministry Team plans and executes various activities for our seniors as well as maintaining an up-to-date list of those who are completely homebound, in coordination with ministerial staff. This team also coordinates helping hands, such as:

  • Delivering audio copies of the Sunday worship services to the homebound
  • Taking homebound members flowers at Christmas and Easter
  • Participating in the Knollwood Meals on Wheels program
  • Maintaining a list of volunteer drivers for Meals on Wheels

Watch for upcoming senior adult activities!

To participate in the Senior Adult Ministry, contact Diane West.
