JK MEMBERSHIP EXPLORATION CLASS | OPEN TO ALL
SUNDAYS OCTOBER 6, 13 & 20| 11:45 AM | MULTIPURPOSE ROOM
Becoming a member of a local church is an important part of following Jesus. Church membership is a covenant relationship that bonds us to the people of God locally and nationally. Join us in the Multipurpose Room on October 6, 13, & 20 at 11:45am and learn about what it means to be Presbyterian, and, if you desire, become a member here at John Knox. Classes are hosted by JK Connect team and taught by Pastor Shari and Pastor Jon, along with several elders, deacons, and members preparing for ordained ministry as pastors. Lunch, childcare and translation provided. To register, join the Realm Group “Membership Exploration Class Fall 2019” or email the office at hello@jkpcusa.org. 

TRUNK OR TREAT IS COMING
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED | SIGN UP TODAY
Every October 31, we welcome several hundred children from our neighborhood to our church parking lot for our Trunk or Treat event. We pass out candy, prizes and treats in an environment that is safe and fun. We can use your help in several ways:

Prayer: Pray for this event to be a place where Jesus’ love is felt through our Mission of reaching out.

Volunteer: Trunk or Treat takes about 2 hours of your time and is a really easy event to help at. If you would like to decorate your car (which is not a requirement), ideas are easily found online. We also have a variety of other needs for the night to help make this event a success. Sign-ups will be in the Atrium.

Donate: Candy, prizes and treats (in stores now with sales and special offers). Please pick up a few bags for the collection bins which will be in the church Atrium.
