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:

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.

Special series, speakers, workshops, and retreats

Sometimes we need to go deeper than our regular schedules will allow—deeper into a high-stakes topic or deeper into cultivating spiritual practices. Consider the upcoming opportunities below.

Miracles & Mud 2

January 23, 2020

We are offering 3 classes designed to introduce a small group to the basics of making a clay pot on a potter’s wheel.  Drawing on the imagery of Jeremiah’s trip to the Potter’s House, we will describe the work of God crafting us as useful vessels, discussing themes of renewal, listening, and transformation.  The classes will combine play and prayer, dirty hands and open hearts.  No previous studio experience is needed but participants should attend all 3 sessions.  Everyone will begin to learn using the wheel, make some simple clay pieces, and fire their creations.

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.
