We partner year round with Cross-Lines Community Outreach in Kansas City, Kansas.
Cross-Lines provides people affected by poverty with basic services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence and self-sufficiency.
Knox Church provides mid-day meals on the fifth Friday of the month. A group of about 10 volunteers transports food from Knox, about 9:30 a.m., to the Cross-Lines food kitchen and serves the meal from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to as many as 300 people.
We purchase books, games, toys and bikes throughout the year for children during the holidays. There are many opportunities to donate and volunteer.
Habitat for Humanity
Each spring break, high school students travel across the country on a mission trip to build houses, restore homes and repair fences in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Areas have included a reservation in the Arizona desert; Pensacola, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Little Rock, Arkansas.

We have a long partnership with this church and university in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Less than 3 percent of Thailand’s population is Christian, yet people there are open to hear about God’s word.
Since 2005, Knox and Payap members have visited each other to exchange ideas, learn from each other and share faith.
