Knox United Methodist Church
Meet Our Pastor...
      Pastor Wade Barto
A WELCOME from our Pastor!
 
I am Wade, the pastor of Knox U.M.C.  I would like to welcome YOU on your journey to finding a church that will increase your faith, spirituality, and fellowship with other believers.  We are a community of believers on a journey of discipleship.  Our prayer is that the ministry that comes out of our church will bring glory and honor to Jesus Christ.  We believe God is an active God, a God Who gives us hope and continues to make all things new.  We believe that every person has a part to play in God's story.

Knox is a community of faith, tradition, and offers both Traditional (at 8:15 a.m.) and Contemporary (at 10:45) worship services.  We have a vibrant Youth program and Sunday school (for all ages).  In addition, we have Bible studies and many outreach programs throughout the week.  

Knox U.M.C. works hard to make sure that everyone feels at home and is welcome! If there is anything at all we can do for you during your journey in seeking a church home, please let me or a friendly greeter know.  We pray and hope that you will try both services and talk to me as you seek.
 
~Pastor Wade
