Knights of the North Castle

Vacation Bible School (VBS) registration is now open

Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. – Ephesians 6:10

This summer from August 2-6 we are going to have an epic time learning about our awesome Savior, Jesus Christ. This year, our young knights will be learning about God’s Word in an ultra safe environment, so they can grow and learn together to be strong for the Lord.

Kids and students preschool to 6th grade are invited to join us for a week of evenings in August and learn about God and putting faith in action through skits, activities, projects, and fun! We kick off with dinner at 5pm then move into our group opening session. Then we split into age groups and rotate between different stations (art, missions, craft, recreation, science and music) before closing with another group session.

If you would like to help out at VBS or donate an item, please contact us! We are always in need of donations for dinner, crafts, and snacks.

Weekly Traditional Worship at our partner location, Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church
In addition to our 10am worship experience at Jackson Church, we have formed a new partnership to celebrate the vital, living Word of God and worship in a traditional style as we remember the historical Methodist tradition of proclaiming the Gospel message in Jackson and beyond. On Sundays at 9am, we will be partnering in a new way to bring Traditional Worship to our Jackson Church community at historic Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church at 9am. This opportunity will bring new vitality to our town as we celebrate God’s power, grace, and love through Jesus Christ for over 170 years as we lay the foundation for another 170 of Gospel.

IMPORTANT: Currently, this traditional worship experience is in-person only and will be 30-40 minutes. Keep in mind that this historic church does NOT have any restrooms or air conditioning. Please plan accordingly.

Our partner location is at Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church, 124 East Pleasant Grove, Jackson about 2 miles from our Jackson Church location.
