Knox’s Bibles, Books & Bites group is kicking off 2017. Contact Amy MacLachlan if you’re a Knox woman—either young or young-at-heart!—and would like to join us for our weekly meetings of fun and fellowship (and a little book discussion, too!). We’ll be reading the book No More Faking Fine by Esther Fleece. Copies are available at Good Books (588 Kerr St.)
Also, we’ll be meeting on a new night! Meetings will be on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. We share hosting and leading duties each week. Come out and be challenged, supported and uplifted!
Knox women: Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 11th. Let’s get together for coffee and tea from 9 to 11 a.m. in the church hall. If you’d like, please bring a breakfast snack to share (muffins, fruit, scones etc.). Everyone is welcome, especially if you weren’t able to come to our November Women’s Breakfast. We’re hoping to make this a quarterly event which women of all ages and interests can enjoy. For more information, please contact Louise Fortier (905-582-6621). If you can help set up, please let Louise know. More details to follow.
A gang from Knox will be cooking and serving dinner at Kerr Street Mission on Monday, January 30th at 6:15 p.m. and they’d love some extra help. Are you available to come early to help prepare the food, act as a server for the meal, or come later to help with cleanup and dishes? Many hands make light work! To get involved, contact Amy MacLachlan.
The Word on Thursday Bible study (a mixed group of 12-14 people) will re-convene Thursday, January 12th in the church parlour at 7:30pm (but we begin to come shortly after 7 because it is good to fellowship first!). We will be continuing our study of Mark’s gospel, starting on Chapter 9. (The study is very loosely based on Timothy Keller’s book Jesus the King: Understanding the Life and Death of the Son of God.) For more info, call Sue Thacker at 905-842-3872.
The Women and the Word Bible Study (a group of 25-30 welcoming women) will resume Tuesday, January 10th at 10 a.m.. We will be doing three study sessions this winter/spring period, beginning with scriptural studies of lesser-known women of the Bible: Anna, Miriam, the Queen of Sheba, Esther, Abigail, and Dorcas Then, for Lent, we will follow Christ as he journeys toward the cross and resurrection as recorded in selections from Mark’s gospel (Chapters 9-16). Following that, we will be looking at selections of Psalms with worship in mind. All of the studies are meant to be reflective, often challenging, and encouraging, so that we all grow as disciples in Christ. For more info call Sue Thacker 905-842-3872.

Thanks for making the holiday season very merry for so many families and seniors this past Christmas!
