Worship Support Opportunities

Are you looking for a way to contribute your time and talent at John Knox? While there are many volunteers and contributors that make our Sunday worship meaningful, there are three areas in which more working hands would be helpful: Guardians, Sound Technicians, and Ushers.  


Guardians provide safety and support by monitoring our video system and grounds during services.


Sound Technicians help to make sure that our sound system is monitored and adjusted as needed during services.


Ushers serve as the first face many see as they arrive at John Knox. They help set up for worship (Sunday Worship and Memorial and Funeral services), greet and give direction to attendees, distribute bulletins and reset the worship space upon the service's conclusion.


No prior experience is required for any of these positions and training will be provided.  All of these positions work on a rotating schedule so the frequency of need depends on how many individuals can help.


Please prayerfully consider and submit the form below to let us know of your interest!

Volunteer Sign-up

There is a John Knox Small Group for you!

Anchor Groups are a new way to connect with members of our church family while studying God's Word in small groups.


What is an Anchor Group?

An Anchor Group is a gathering of church members for Bible study and fellowship. An intergenerational Bible study will be provided weekly for each Anchor Group. These groups are not intended to replace any small group that you are already participating in at John Knox. They are an additional way we can gather and delve into the Scriptures to grow together as disciples of Jesus Christ.


How do I sign up for an Anchor Group?

Click here or contact David Howell or the church office.

Take our Survey

Help Us Celebrate Your Serving

 

You care about important things, and we know that you are making a difference in our community. Would you share with us where and how you serve? We want to celebrate and share all the ways that John Knox members are serving in our community.

 

Please take a few moments to complete the brief survey below. Think broadly as you answer: room mother, mentor, youth sports coach, Scout Leader, board member of a non-profit, civic club, and others. A clear picture of all the ways our members serve will help us understand our reach and encourage one another in our faithful work.

 

Together we are on a mission from God. Thanks for all you are doing!

Dear Church Family,

 

I would like to take the time to thank everybody for their prayers and cards during my time of illness and my current recuperation.  I would especially like to thank the quilting group for the beautiful quilt they made for me. While my recuperation will take much more time, I consider myself blessed to have a caring church family that has kept me in their prayers and I am sure will keep praying for me through my recuperation period.


The spirit of the Lord is always on display at John Knox Church.

 

Thank you, and bless everyone.

Rich Falasco

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
