Seeking Your Support: Guatemala Scholarships

Our annual campaign to support young women in Guatemala is underway!


For several years a focus of our church’s commitment in Guatemala has been a community development initiative directed by Rob and Tara Cahill of Community Cloud Forest Conservation. The WALC Program (Women in Agroecology Leadership for Conservation) invites young women from villages surrounding Cobán to learn sustainable agricultural practices that they can take back to their families and villages. Additional learning includes health and wellness, life skills, and leadership development. In addition to the 25-day on-site training, students receive support for school attendance in the following academic year. In 2022, 167 young women from numerous villages participated in this program.


Please join our effort to equip a generation of female leaders in northern Guatemala through the WALC program (Women in Agroecology Leadership for Conservation). Each gift of $150 supports one student's participation. You may pay by check to John Knox (memo: Guatemala), or electronically through the John Knox app. Thanks for your generosity!

Side-by-Side Respite Ministry Seeks Director

Those attending the churchwide luncheon on September 10 heard about Side-by-Side, a forthcoming respite care ministry envisioned by John Knox leaders. With the care of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, this ministry will provide social engagement, stimulating activities, and spiritual fellowship to dependent seniors, offering their family caregivers valuable time to rest and recharge.

We are now welcoming applications for a Director of Respite Ministry to implement and lead this new program, which we hope to open in early 2024. Please share this announcement with anyone who might be interested.

Director of Respite Ministry
In this season of concern, the Church’s witness of service and caring is more important than ever. John Knox is doing all we can to continue our ministry in ways that keep us connected to God and to each other. Please continue your offerings so that we can serve fully throughout this time of need.

Ways to give:
  • Mail your contributions to the church at 35 Shannon Dr., Greenville, SC 29615
  • Set up electronic payments through your financial institution
  • Use the John Knox app: click on “Give”

Thank you for prioritizing the ministry of Jesus Christ in your financial life.
