Meet Knox Hall. This is our fantastic all-purpose, jack-of-all trades, “utility player” room. In baseball they call a player who can play a number of different positions, a Utility Player. It’s kind of rare. And it’s an important role. In the major leagues, only a handful of players have ever played all nine positions in one game.
That’s versatility. That’s Knox Hall.
It mostly resembles a gym, and it is. This space is used for a wide variety of ministries. There are open gym times for adult basketball and pickleball. We share Knox Hall with our neighbors such as Northville Schools for basketball practices. And we are honored to share it with a Wheelchair Soccer team who practice and play games in the gym.
Knox Hall is super versatile. WardStudents and Ward Preschool make frequent use of the Knox Hall gym. We host Northville high school annual AP testing right here. And, this space is used for everything from deacon luncheons after funerals to fancy dinners such as when we hosted General Assembly. At times Knox Hall is even set up for large church meetings or Sunday worship services.
And of course, Knox Hall is the home of the legendary FX: A Family Experience worship service that happens 3 times a year for families and grade school students. As many as 500 students and parents attend each of our FX programs during the fall. Knox Hall – a utility player all-star!
