Week 8

February 26, 2019

Price Increase Approaching!

Please note, the price for Spring Retreat increases from 130$ to 150$ this coming Sunday, March 3rd! I also have to order T-Shirts on March 4th, so if your child is not registered they may not get a T-Shirt! Register here. This is a tremendous weekend for the students, in which they have an opportunity to grow closer with each other and with the Lord, all while having nearly unnecessary amounts of fun (and sugar). We begin at 5pm on Friday, March 15th, and return around noon on Sunday, March 17th. Open to all current High School students! Scholarships available; please contact Darin Nettleton.

Go and Serve

This year’s Go and Serve is to Sisseton, SD! Knox’s relationship with this town and the surrounding area is as old as our church. Go and Serve has not been to Sisseton since 1985, and we are excited to return this summer! We will be doing all the usual Go and Serve stuff – work projects throughout the day, worship in the evenings, and fun fun fun all the time! For incoming confirmands, the cost is 360$ and the deadline, April 24th. For High school students and adults, the cost is 360$ until March 20th, and 410$ March 21-April3. For Young Adults (HS class of 2017 through 24), the cost is 100$ through April 24th. Scholarships available; please contact Darin Nettleton. Register away! We hope to see you there.

Week 7

February 21, 2019

Go and Serve is headed to Sisseton, SD!

We are excited to announce that this year’s Go and Serve trip is to Sisseton South Dakota June 9th – 15th. Knox has had a relationship with this small town near the board of South Dakota since the very earliest days of our existence. Knox regularly sends a group of volunteers to the town for a yearly VBS. We are glad to be able to continue strengthening this partnership with our Go and Serve! We will be staying at the Family Life Assembly of God Church for the week, different than the dorms of the past handful of years, but far from a new way of doing G&S!

Registration is open here or on the Registration page. Registration dates are as follows:

Youth/Adults

  • 360$ from Feb 20-March 20
  • 410$ from March 21 – April 3

Young Adult: 100$ through April 24th

Confirmands: 360$ through April 24th

Fundraising will consist of Go and Serve Sunday and the Youth car wash. Details about these events, along with packing lists, are forthcoming.

Remember, Youth are welcome to invite a friend to Go and Serve, and we encourage this! Adults, you are welcome to come as well either to serve on a team or to work in the kitchen.

Spring Retreat

Spring Retreat is approaching quickly! Register by March 3rd for the discounted rate of 130$ and a guaranteed T-Shirt. If you wait March 4-March 13th, we will not be able to guarantee a T-shirt or a spot. Scholarships are available for students in need – contact Darin Nettleton to request. This will be a tremendous weekend of fun and fellowship, and I look forward to seeing the students there!
