We’re back and looking forward to making some wonderful music as part of the Christmas season. We’re pleased to welcome our new music director, Brian Turnbull, to lead the practices with our little ones in preparation for singing during the 4 p.m. carol service on Dec. 17th and the children’s Christmas pageant on Dec. 24th. We’ll be rehearsing downstairs after Sunday worship from 11:15 to 11:45. All kids are welcome to come sing with us! Please contact Brian Turnbull, Duncan Low or Dawn Robinson for more information.
It’s time to sign up to our annual travelling nativity set! Be a part of this amazing tradition, meet people from our church you’ve never met before, read stories of the travelling nativity set from years before…. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with Christ and with your church this Advent season.
The Treats and Treasures sale is this Saturday, Nov. 25th. It runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are many delightful creations that we hope will entice you to support the Chancel Guild as they raise money for the New Roads project. Thank you to all who have donated. Baked goods, etc., can be brought to the church on Friday, Nov. 24th until 7:30 p.m. We hope you can find some time next Saturday to be with us!
It’s the time of year when Knox once again shows our generous spirit by contributing mightily to Kerr Street Ministries’ Christmas Wonders program for families living below the poverty line right here in Oakville. We are a big part of providing Christmas for these families. Starting on Sunday, Nov. 26th, there will be a table at which you can make donations, so prayerfully consider a generous gift!
A word from the Property Management Team: “Time for a Refresh.” Due to increasing difficulties securing the main Lakeshore and Dunn Street doors, the Property Team is undertaking a project to renovate and restore their operation and paint. A firm from Hamilton (Lower City Joinery) has been selected to undertake this important and highly visible maintenance project.
Starting with the Lakeshore Doors, they will be removed and taken to the firm’s workshop in Hamilton. Dry rot will be repaired, paint stripped and hardware replaced and polished. While the doors are away being repaired, temporary painted plywood will be installed over the door openings. Access to the Narthex will still be maintained through the Dunn Street tower doors.
