John Knox Men's Fellowship NEXT MEETING: Feb, 26, 2019 @ Richland ARP, Rosemark, TN
The John Knox Fellowship is a Christian men’s organization whose participants are Presbyterians from four Tennessee counties (Haywood, Fayette, Tipton, and Shelby).
This group, organized in 1950, has been meeting semi-annually ever since. The regular meeting dates are the last Tuesday nights of August and February.
The name was selected honoring the great Scottish minister John Knox (1513-1572) who studied under John Calvin. Knox became a leader of the Scottish Reformation and along with five others wrote the Scots Confession in just four days. This statement of faith of the Scottish Church remained until 1646 when it was replaced by the Westminster Confession of Faith.
Our meeting place rotates among the larger churches involved. Each host church provides a meal followed by a program that usually features a lay person. There is a charge for the meal and a love offering is collected during the program to offset any expenses.
This group strives to uplift, motivate, encourage, educate, and serve Presbyterian men throughout West Tennessee. The John Knox Fellowship’s purpose is to inspire men to a greater commitment to Christ and His church and to encourage men toward better Sunday School and church attendance. Christian fellowship is a priority for these gatherings.
OUR NEXT MEETING will be at Richland Presbyterian Church (ARP) in Rosemark, TN. at 7PM. Meal cost is $7. Please RSVP below
OUR SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER will be Rev. Christopher Neiswonger of Graceview Presbyterian (ARP), Southaven, MS. Christopher is among the ARP's most recently ordained ministers, having lived most of his professional career as a recording artist, lawyer, and Christian Apologist. Moving in 2017 from California to Tennessee, Christopher was eagerly sought after to become the newest minister of Graceview Presbyterian. Come hear Christopher's message that will focus on the very life of John Knox, and learn the lessons of direct application for the church today from this great Reformer of the past.
