Happy 95th Birthday, Vi!! vi

Vi Hancock  will be here for our Worship Service next Sunday on August 25. We are so pleased we can all celebrate together her 95th birthday! Vi is our eldest church member and started attending here about 12 years ago.

Please join us to honor this special lady who daily prays for us and supports our church financially - even though she cannot be here on a regular basis.
We will have her birthday cake for all of you on the patio.  You won't want to miss being here for this and the Community Groups sign up with snow cones. What a day!

Vi with her Miss America!

Food Packing Event-Planning Help Needed! foodpacking

On Saturday, November 16th, Knollwood is teaming with The Outreach Program (TOP) to sponsor a food packing event in our Fellowship Hall. This will be a fun filled family event with children five and older eligible to participate.  

Our goal is to pack at least 15,000 meals. The meals will be turned over to the Columbia Baptist food pantry for local distribution. This is a great way to assist our "neighbors" at Thanksgiving. More information will be provided in the upcoming months. Please contact Glenn Keller at  if you would like to be part of the planning team.
