What does it mean to be a Christian? Join us for this 4-week exploration of the central beliefs of Christianity. This class is perfect for anyone who is exploring faith, just beginning a relationship with God, or returning to faith after some time away. Contact Ben Foster for more information.
COMPLETED BOXES DUE
THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20!
People pack shoebox gifts every year to bless thousands of needy children around the world in over 100 countries. Turn in your filled shoeboxes THIS SUNDAY in the church lobby, build a shoebox online, or make a donation to help cover shipping. Email Judy Corcoran with any questions.
MAGIC SHOW & POPCORN

Join us this Sunday after the service for popcorn and a Magic Show by Moises Altamirano and his assistants. We’ll take a break after the service ends to give parents a few minutes to collect their kids and the show will start shortly thereafter in the Worship Center. Email Moises with any questions.
KSM MEETING!

Rising 7th - 12th graders are invited to join us from 3:45 - 5:00 pm as we continue our four-week study from the Old and New Testaments on Loving Others! We will have a large group talk followed by small group discussions to help apply the message.
WORSHIP CENTER DECORATING
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26

It’s that time of year again when we start to think about decorating for Christmas! This year we’d love to have some more decorators. We’ll tell you what to do; you don’t have to be creative! Refreshments will be provided. Email Mary Mendez if you’d like to help!
HOT COCOA BAR
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27

Join us for a Hot Cocoa Bar with all of the trimmings: marshmallows, sprinkles, peppermint sticks, and more. We’ll have chocolate dipped marshmallows and chocolate sticks for dipping. Invite a friend to join you and stick around after the service!
COMMUNION UPDATE
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4
All are invited to join us as we share communion during the morning worship service on December 4. (This will take the place of communions which would normally occur on November 27 and December 18.) At Knollwood, we practice open communion for any and all who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. If you are watching online, please gather your elements and join us in communion the first Sunday in December.
FOOD PANTRY COLLECTION
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4
We are collecting something a little different next month in support of the food pantry at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church. Please bring the following items to Knollwood on Sunday, December 4 and drop them in the donation boxes located outside the Worship Center: toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, and deodorant. For additional information, contact Glenn Keller.
WOMEN'S MINISTRY EVENT!
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9
Ladies, invite a friend and join other women at Knollwood on Friday, December 9 from 7:00-9:00 pm for an evening of fellowship. We will enjoy cookies, crafts, and conversations with one another! There is no charge to attend. However, there are two items each person will need to bring to the event: a pair of scissors for use during the craft time AND two dozen cookies for our cookie exchange. Contact Arlene Randall or Carole McNamara with any questions.
KIDS MINISTRY
MAGI’S MARKETPLACE
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18
The kids in our Kids Ministry will have a chance to "shop" at our Magi's Marketplace to pick out a gift or two for someone in their family. Then they’ll wrap it and take it home for Christmas Day! We need your help to make sure the kids have lots of great gifts to choose from. Click the button below for some suggestions of both new and used items we'd like for our marketplace. We are looking for gifts in the $5 - $10 range. All donations need to be brought to the church by Sunday, December 11th. Contact Katie Conaway with any questions.
