Exercising faith in body, mind, and spirit

Wellness is vital to our lives, both physically and spiritually. Our bodies were designed by Divine hands to be active. For these reasons, we believe that promoting activity and play is a vibrant part of our ministry together at Knollwood.

When our Wellness and Community Center was completed in 2017, we began searching for ways to fill it with life and the joy of recreation. Our wellness offerings stretch from the calmness of yoga to the cacophony of children freely playing, so that everyone can find a place to explore the intersection of their physical and spiritual wellness.
Since its opening, the WCC has truly become a community center. From events for refugee families, to open time periods for neighbors to use the walking track or play pickleball, to classes in drawing and pottery, the building is in constant use in ways that connect Knollwood to its home city.
