River Cruises for Mission 2016

River Boat

Sign Up Here!

It’s a favorite Knox tradition – the series of mission cruises hosted by Israel and Bina Bonnell aboard their classic, Cincinnati-built boat on the Ohio River. Here’s the idea: you take a leisurely and relaxing river cruise, enjoy a fabulous meal, and make a donation to Knox’s Third Church mission. Last year, more than 200 persons did just that and we raised more than $15,000 for mission work. Let’s do more this year!

Spaces will go fast, so sign-up today. Register on-line at or at the Michigan Avenue desk for one (or more) of the below dates. All dinner cruises depart at 6:00pm and lunch cruises at noon, except as noted.

The funds raised in last year’s cruises supported the Third Church recreation center, Sunday lunch fellowship and education aids (PCs, iPads, network) for tutoring.  As we raise more funds, we plan to invest in job-related training programs for young adults and young parents to enter the workforce and stay in the workforce in well-paying jobs.
